For a long time, Lexus was criticized for the leniency of his models, then the cursor moved to the opposite extreme and was then criticized for being too tortured. But it seems now perfectly placed and his latest creations (with rare exceptions SUVesques) are real works of art on wheels, like the LC which does not lose anything of its beauty once disheveled, on the contrary.
