Poll Results: Favorite Lexus of the Past Decade

Favorite Lexus of the Past Decade

Last week, I asked you to vote for your favorite Lexus of the past decade—510 votes later, here are the results:

Poll Results: Favorite Lexus of the 2000s


1. Lexus IS F 20%
2. Lexus 2nd Gen IS 16%
3. Lexus 4th Gen LS 13%

The IS F received 1 of every 5 votes and took the poll with ease, not unlike how it would compete with the lineup on the track. Combine the IS F number with the second generation IS that it’s based on, and that design really put up a dominant performance. Victory lap (by Aaron Povoledo)!

One last thing—there was some confusion about the first generation IS not being included in the poll. I didn’t included it in the poll because of its 1998 release in Europe. That said, the IS SportCross should have been included. Sorry for the confusion, hopefully it didn’t skew the results too bad.



  1. the IS-F deserved to be on one of the three steps, however, I feel that the IS first Gen which is quite popular would have been ahead of the IS Gen² and possibly of the IS-F.

    We’ll never know wink

  2. Don’t agree with the IS-F winning as it doesn’t represent the essence of the Lexus brand which is outright luxury first & foremost. LS should’ve won with IS-F maybe 2nd. sad

  3. The FIRST gen IS is the best Lexus IMO.

    But since the ISF just came out and was able to beat out all other Lexus models…it just comes to show what people are looking for. The ISF does not lose its Lexus luxury and at that same time adds awesome perfromance. I can see why it won.

  4. @LEXUSBOY: I agree. The IS F was a break through of Lexus’ image, not innovation.

  5. There was innovation too, adding the Sport Direct-Shift (SPDS) transmission, for instance.

  6. if LF-A is up there, it would be a clear winner =)
