Tired of boring, boxy, uninteresting looking compact SUV’s?

Check out the 2020 Lexus UX 250h.  Inside and out, on the road and parked in front of your house, I promise you–it will be a sight for tired eyes and a bored automotive spirit.

    I think that in recent years, both Toyota and its luxury division, Lexus have made a decision to not walk, but run away from tired, “okay” styling and design.

And why shouldn’t they feel that way?  …

Except for one.
The 2016 Lexus NX 200t.

You will probably notice a similarity between the NX lineup and the others out there in a blink of the eye.

2016 Lexus RX 350: Style leader and then some

By Don Hammonds

Few auto companies can claim a dramatic, across the board styling transformation as Lexus can these days.

No matter where you look, Lexus products are generally at the head of the pack when it comes to contemporary styling with a flair in the luxury business right now.  And that’s a far cry from the days of modestly styled, “good” cars that were pretty much  subdued.

No more. With the striking spindle style grille, the use of what I would call …

By Don Hammonds

When auto shows begin their annual displays of razzle dazzle  in this country, most auto writers think they know what to expect.

Detroit will be a busy, hectic, but important show where we will see what’s on tap from the U.S. in coming years. Chicago will host a far more expansive and comfortable car show, earning its stripes as the circuits most enjoyable venue. but its unveilings may not be quite ground breaking as the Detroit show.

      By Don Hammonds
