My first lap in Lexus IS F at Las Vegas Speedway
My first lap around the road course at LV Speedway in IS F. Neutral
handling, incredible power and Brembo brakes. 8-speed direct shift auto
transmission changes gears in .1sec. Even though I love manual gearbox
there is no argument that for shaving the last fraction of a second from
your lap time this is the way to go. Shifts are direct, immediate and
smooth, no waiting. Downshifts are just as quick with the "blip" perfectly
mimmicking well executed heel-and-toe. SMG and dual-clutch trans don't
compare. Plus, this is a Lexus, street ride is smooth and quiet.
2015 Lexus NX review
Lexus makes its first compact luxury SUV. Smaller than the Lexus RX, the NX
is based on the Toyota RAV4 platform. It features the new Lexus 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder with 235hp
2015 Lexus NX 200t and NX 300h Detailed Review and Road Test

While Land Rover arguably invented the concept of a luxury SUV with their
first Range Rover, the 1998 Lexus RX is the vehicle that's had the single
biggest impact on the luxury industry. Initially derided by the press as a
lifted Camry with delusions of grandeur, calling the RX a run away sales
success would be an understatement. Lexus' original crossover now accounts
for over a third of the brand's total volume in America and holds the crown
as the best selling luxury vehicle on our shores. Trouble is, the RX has
grown over time and is now a half-step too big for European tastes. In the
hopes of dominating a third of Lexus brand sales in Europe, Lexus engineers
went back to the drawing board and created s little brother for the RX: the
2015 Lexus NX.
The right-sized Lexus crossover is, as you'd expect, almost exactly the
same size as the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, BMW X3 and Acura RDX. That puts the
NX slightly ahead of the Mercedes GLK, four inches ahead of the 2015
Lincoln MKC and a full foot longer than the Range Rover Evoque. With 6.9
inches of ground clearance the NX should be just as dirt-road capable as
the average luxury soft-roader and interestingly Lexus bothers to publish
approach and departure angles. In case you're now wondering, approach is
28.7 degrees in 200t and 300h trim and 16.8 deg in the F-Sport because of
the flatter front end. Departure remains 24 degrees on all models.
Before you ask, the NX isn't a shrunken RX and it isn't a luxury RAV-4
either. Lexus claims that 90% of the parts are unique to the NX and those
that are shared are primarily related to the optional hybrid system. Thanks
to the clean sheet design, the NX is the first Lexus that looks comfortable
in the new corporate uniform.While other Lexus models (namely the LS) wear
the "spindle" grille surprisingly well, other aspects of the new design
language haven't translated well to the luxury brand's utility vehicles.
The "Nike swoosh" LED daytime running lamp modules that look oddly
out-of-place on the IS sedan actually work on the NX and I found myself
wondering why. I think the answer can be found in the headlamp module which
is much sleeker than in other Lexus models thanks to standard LED low
beams. Overall the combination allows for a more balanced front end.
From tip to tail there's no doubt that the NX's design won't be for
everyone, but I find that refreshing for a brand long known for
design-restraint. I wouldn't exactly call it the looks ground breaking or
polarizing, but this is as close as Lexus has even been. Although Lexus is
making an NX F-Sport Hybrid, Lexus has chosen to not offer the aggressive
grille and fuel-sipping engine combo in America.Under the hood beats the
first turbo engine Lexus has sold in
America: an all-new 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While the
engineers spent most of their time telling members of the press how
fantastic their turbo design is, I was
more intrigued that this seems to be the first non-hybrid drivetrain that
can switch between an Otto and an Atkinson cycle. (Mazda tells me they do
not consider the SkyAcitv design an Atkinson cycle.) The technology behind
this is a new variable valve timing system that can adjust the intake and
Exhaust cam timing independently
allowing for a late intake valve closure when efficiency rather than torque
is required. Also on the trivia list is an air-to-water Intercooler instead of a more typical
air-to-air unit. The result is 235 horsepower from 4,800-5,600
RPM and 258 lb-ft from 1,650-4,000 RPM.
Rather than borrowing the 8-speed automatic used in the RX350 F-Sport (and
the XC60), Lexus chose to refresh an existing 6-speed auto and tweak it for
the turbo engine's low-end torque. The
engineer I spoke with claimed that the rationale behind the missing gears
was that "an 8-speed automatic isn't as much fun with paddle shifters."
Make of that what you will.

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the prototype 2015 Lexus NX. A more complete "In Depth Review"
will follow with they begin to hit showrooms later this year.
MSRP pricing for the NX has not been released. I will update this as soon
as it's available.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2014 IS: For 2014 the every
popular Lexus IS gets a full makeover boasting more technology and better
fuel economy and exterior design language. The Lexus IS debuted in 2001 and
while it had intentions of beating the BMW 3 Series in sales in never
really did so. The 2nd generation IS however was 3 times more popular than
the 1st generation but it still did not beat sales of the 3 Series. So can
this 3rd generation finally reach it's goal after 13 years? Powertrains in
the new IS are pretty much the same as the outgoing model a 2.5 L or a
powerful 3.5 L V6 are still present, however the new 3.5 L comes with a new
8-Speed Automatic which makes better fuel economy. Room on the interior is
roomier than it's every been before, however it still feels cramped even
with 4 full size adults the new 2014 Infiniti Q50 and Cadillac ATS will fit
the bill if you want more room. On the exterior design Lexus has flared it
up a bit, while some can still easily tell it's an IS things are changed
from the LED Daytime running lights separating from the main headlights to
the sleek taillights and to the new spindle grill design that some love or
hate. Everything feels quite familiar on the new IS within the interior
with nice supportive and extremely comfortable front seats and to it's
mouse like pad that can be a distraction but it's very easy to use. High
quality materials are also very evident. There are many packages to choose
from on the new IS, however one of the more notable packages will be the F
Sport Package which will add even more flare to the exterior design.
Driving dynamics on the IS are not bad, however the 3 Series and ATS will
be the one if you want better driving dynamics. Pricing on the new IS
starts at around $35,000 and can run you to almost $50,000 depending on
options you choose from. Now compared to it's competitors the new IS is
definitely an improvement over the outgoing model and we really praise it
for it's ultra luxurious interior and a flaring design as well as the
powerful 3.5 L V6. We also really love the improved fuel economy numbers
and more technological features. So is the new IS competitive? Yes it is,
most IS buyers are looking for a luxurious interior with a nice amount of
technology as well as decent driving dynamics.
