A reverse engineered Mercedes-Benz ( by Toyota's own admission). Consistently emulate German styling cues, German safety, powertrain and convenience technology. ESP, ABS, airbags, direct injection, adaptive Xenon (xenon itself), air suspension, chassis control - all products of Germany, all emulated years later in Lexus products. Driving dynamics are relatively poor by European standards. The Lexus brand also has little to no equity compared to established Germans which have been making history for generations.
Lexus's are a smashing hit in the US, but not in Europe where they are perceived as gimmicky cars with no status, no innovation, no real chassis/driving engineering. Sales have suffered as a result
At the end of the day, you pay for the great reliability in the complete absence of any driving pleasure, innovations, style, or tier one brand status. Lexus has no premium super car (audi a8), and no motor sport involvement, no performance spec across the lineup (mb amg, bmw M, audi rs).
guy 1: Lexus like Toyotallly does everything so unique
guy 2: there would be no lexus without mercedes-benz you fool. Grow a pair, deal with the extra cost, and buy the real thing you cheap ass.
Japanese prestige Car, big into bling

Luxury car manufacturer under Toyota. It is true that Lexus's are really Toyota's in Japan, but that doesn't mean they are cheap. In Germany and most of Europe, Mercedes's are cheap as well, just like some of the Toyota's in America you guys have been referring to.
One of the best quality cars ever built, engine will last you forever, as it was rated to be the most reliable auto maker.
The name "Lexus" is derived from Toyota's LE(luxury edition cars), US(United States), and X which is taken from the word luxury, with the overall meaning to say "Luxury Edition for the United States. Put the acronyms together and you get "Lexus."
You drive a Lexus? Damn you're rich!
Luxury Cars that a lot of rappers like Biggie Smalls rap about
Them niggaz ride dicks, frank white push the sticks
On the lexus, lx, four and a half
Bulletproof glass tints if I want some ass
Umm the person above is an idiot because Lexus had innovations in the early 1990's that Mercedes didn't come out with until the late 90's. Mercedes is a nice car but for the money, Lexus owns them and every other car maker in their class. Suck on that
Lexus had Car Phones, Memory Seats, and Heated Seats way before Mercedes
There are worse things than being a Toyota. You could be a Mercedes.
The fact is, Lexus has an incredible quality reputation that is not declining. Mercedes' reputation for quality has been declining in recent years. The acquisition by Chrysler did not help. Chrysler, like other American cars, aims to appeal by promoting their powerful engines. The really good car manufacturers promote their quality and safety first.
By the way, do you know that Lexus has a car that can do zero to 60 in 5.3 seconds and gets 30 mpg? Find that in any other car if you can!!
I own a Toyota and a Lexus, and they are great cars. I've also owned Fords, Chevys, Dodge, VW, Mitsubishi, Fiat, Buick, Pontiac, and although all were good cars, they did not compare with the Toyota and Lexus.
