Poll: What’s your favorite vehicle in the current Lexus lineup?

Lexus Favorite Lexus

You drive past the local Lexus dealership, and decide to stop in for a quick look around. Which model is your first stop? What is your favorite current Lexus in the lineup?

Some will prefer the flagships, others will lean towards performance, and perhaps it’s all about the next vehicle you’re going to buy. Spend a couple moments to think it through, then cast your vote.

I’m sure we all have our idea which model is going to come out on top, but this is a survey that could yield some surprises. Voting closes in a week, be sure to discuss and defend your choice in the forums!

Because I like sport sedans but IS is too old. Waiting for new IS....
This was difficult for me, but I had to go with the GS F. To me, it's the most versatile vehicle in the lineup, the one I would love to live with.

Even so, wouldn't kick an LX or LS out of my driveway.

Me too, RC. I am waiting for a new IS and RC....
For me, it's pretty much a tossup between GS F and LC, but I ultimately went with the latter. Its totally distinctive style inside and out gives it the nod from me.

I've got to agree with Krew, however, that the GS F's do-it-all versatility makes it a super-close contender.
Had to choose between GS F and LC..... chose GS F.
Hands down the best model in Lexus's current lineup is the new ES. The NX is second.

Voted both the GS F and the LC. Honestly the best two cars in Lexus' lineup.

To me the LC is a work of art! ... to the eyes and to the ears.
I picked the IS. For me, it is the perfect size, perfect balance between having a nice car but not attracting too much attention and it drives wonderfully, has a large boot, 4 doors and reasonably powered without being extremely so. RWD also. Always been my favourite car of all time since gen 1. Don't even care that the current IS is old. Oldie but a goodie I say.

But if the question was "which is the best Lexus"...LC500 hands down. Then LS500. Then GS-F.
I love the GSF but I voted for the LC. I mean look at it damn so gorgeous to look at! I wish they were able to sell more of them...maybe the F variant or the LCC will help!

As much as I rave about the GS F and would love to own an LS, the ES was definitely on my voting radar. It's the car I would own if I had bought a car in 2018 instead of 2017.
RCF.

It is the most dynamic car (and closest thing to a sports car) to drive in the Lexus line up and the attention it gets.

Current GS owner. I check this page daily to read news about it being redesigned or discontinued. I love the car and really hope they go with another redesign (in the rumored form of an A7/CLS competitor). I know that 2020 will be the last year for this model and I’m really anxious to find out what’s next for it.
GSF all the way !
“Like” as opposed to “what is best” (perhaps another poll?) means the LC. Seeing one on the road shows how absolutely gorgeous it is and the power and interior kick it way up front for me.
Honestly without the high F variant LC still missing something

My vote = LC. It is way too high level to be in my (financial) reach, but that's not the reason for my choice. As a current Lexus employee, I can tell you that this is - by far - the best developed model in the entire range.
If I would have to choose for a daily driver, then my choice would be the IS with F SPORT equipment. Unfortunately there is no station wagon version to be more practical and of course I would perhaps wait for a new generation, but I prefer to drive a sporty low seater than an SUV like NX or RX. At least the trunk space of IS is decent + foldable rear seats + possibility to put a bike holder on a towing hitch or a roof rack.

I have a small doubt to choose for the ES as a daily driver, as this car is very well developed as well (much better than the LS hybrid). But again, no station wagon version available and, what is more important, no possibility whatsoever to have foldable rear seats, bike holder or roof top box... so not practical at all for my current family situation. ;)
I love my LS (especially today, with the spring sun lighting up the gorgeous Nightfall Mica paint), but if money and practicality were no object it'd be LC all the way.

Definitely the LC500 in my opinion, has all their best parts from their bin, unique, powerful, yet comfortable.
LC is by far the most unique car when compared with its competitors at the current state that Lexus is in right now.

LC in a heart-beat! I've already sat in one and it's amazing... This car is gorgeous, it has an outstanding build quality and the driving position is phenomenal.
Even standing still when I closed the door it made me feel like I've never experienced, totally different from LS that I've also experienced.

If money wasn't an issue, my daily driver would be a LC500h, it's one of the few non-electric cars I would buy.

LC 500 for sure.
