Closer Look: The Lexus LM 350, when the Alphard is just another poor-man's car

If you find yourself having RM 1.11 million in spare change, then maybe you can join the ranks of royals and consider this just-launched-in-Malaysia 2021 Lexus LM 350. "Oh but it's just an overstyled Toyota Alphard!" You - or someone else - might think that, but having seen it up close and personal this is something that couldn't be further from the truth.

2020 Lexus LM 300h launched in Thailand, pricier than S-Class, available with either 4 or 7 seats

If your regular Toyota Alphard and Vellfire aren’t posh enough for your liking, you might want to pay attention to the 2020 Lexus LM 300h. The luxury people-carrier comes in two variants, a 4-seater and a 7-seater variant. The 4-seater costs a cool 6.5 million baht (RM 874,556 in the current exchange rate) while 7 seater is 1 million baht lesser (RM 740,107). Mind you, a Mercedes-Benz S350d Exclusive is priced at 6.39 million baht (RM 859,790), thus making LM 300h as one of the priciest car in T

Someone grafted a Lexus ‘Spindle Grille’ onto a Camry-based Toyota Sienna

It’s bound to happen. There are already after-market Lexus ‘spindle grille’ conversions for various Toyota models, from a Hilux to a Fortuner, and even Camry! At the moment, Lexus only has one minivan model, the Toyota Alphard/Vellfire-based Lexus LM. Lexus has no plans to introduce another minivan but that hasn’t stop Instagram user sugardesign_1 from rendering a smaller, mid-range Lexus minivan based on the recently launched Toyota Sienna.

New upgraded Toyota Alphard / Vellfire launching in May 2021, for Malaysia too

Sales of the current AH30 generation Toyota Alphard / Toyota Vellfire twins will end next year in 2022. The next generation 2022 model however, will be rationalized into just one model, only the Toyota Alphard. It also means that the current AH30 generation Toyota Vellfire will be the last. To commemorate the end of the Alphard / Vellfire twins, Toyota will be introducing a final edition model of sorts for the Alphard / Vellfire twins. Sources in Japan say that the upgraded final edition Alphard

Believe it or not, this is a Toyota Innova

Here in Malaysia, or even anywhere else in South East Asia, we don’t think very highly of the Toyota Innova. Malaysians in particular can’t get over the fact that it rides on the same underpinnings as a rudimentary Toyota Hilux pick-up truck. Tough and good for carrying loads yes, but not for refinement. Over in Indonesia, theToyota Innova is very popular. It’s seen as a step up from the Toyota Avanza, the default car for Indonesia, similar to our Perodua Myvi. Still, Indonesians don’t see it as

Sejarah Toyota Alphard: Pembangunan yang menjadi raja segala MPV

Di Malaysia, kehangatan kenderaan jenis MPV mula menjadi jelas sejak kedatangan Toyota Estima. Walaupun Toyota Estima mempunyai saiz dan rupa paras yang cukup menonjol, sesetengah pembeli lebih gemar akan kenderaan yang lebih gah supaya kelihatan lebih ‘atas’ dalam khalayak ramai. Dengan kebolehan yang cukup lengkap serta gaya yang dimiliki oleh Toyota Estima, pembeli sememangnya menantikan kehadiran abang sulungnya iaitu Toyota Alphard.

Though it looks similar and shares a powertrain with the Toyota Alphard, the 2021 Lexus LM350 that's coming to Malaysia is even more of a house-on-wheels than the Alphard.

Review: 2020 Lexus UX 200 2.0L CVT, compact SUV with BMW handling, Lexus refinement

(2020 Lexus UX Price & Specs | Gallery) When the all-new Lexus UX 200 broke covers at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, I was extremely confused with the idea of a small Lexus SUV when the Japanese premium carmaker already has the highly accomplished Lexus NX. The insatiable appetite for Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) around the world has prompt carmakers to create countless variations of SUVs – convertible SUVs are, by far, the wildest creation ever. Last year in Malaysia, the SUV market grew by 64.8%

Hyundai trademarks Staria in Malaysia

Hyundai has quite an ambitious plan to recapture the ASEAN market. It is currently in the midst of building its Indonesian plant which will be the ASEAN hub and has a few models lined up, including some that will arrive in Malaysia. One of those models is an MPV that will be facing off against the next-gen (front-wheel drive) Toyota Avanza/Perodua Alza. However, while Hyundai hasn’t announced its name officially, we found a few clues at the Malaysian trademark office (MyIPO). The Staria trademar

30 years of Lexus: How it began and what is the meaning of the Lexus name?

First introduced in 1989 with the first generation Lexus LS 400, this year marks the 30th anniversary of the luxury car brand that set new standards for quality and customer service. Lexus’ story began in August 1983 at Toyota’s headquarters in Aichi, when the then Chairman of Toyota Motor Eiji Toyoda convened for top-secret meeting and posted the question, “Can we create a luxury car to challenge the very best?” The abbreviated version of Lexus’ history often credits Eiji, who is the granduncle

RM 249k 2021 Toyota Harrier vs RM 236k Lexus UX: Why Toyota when you can Lexus?

Perhaps the biggest news surrounding the launch of the 2021 Toyota Harrier is the demise of the 8AR-FTS turbocharged power unit. One way or another, some will moan about this, but there are solid reasons why Toyota did this. At RM 249k, the Toyota Harrier asks quite a sizeable chunk of your hard-earned money. Interestingly, the Lexus UX occupies a similar price range to the Harrier (RM 236k - 290k). Will this cause some sort of cannibalisation within the brands? Let's delve further and have a lo

Lexus trademarks new name, next car to be RZ450e?

We heard through the grapevine that Lexus has registered the name RZ450e in the USA, Europe, and Australia. This suggested that Lexus has both a new model coming soon and a possible new powertrain. Now that we have a name, we can start speculating on what it can tell us. The Z is a hint that this will be a whole new model of its own. We glanced through Lexus’ history book and noted that the brand has never used the letter Z on any models that have come before. We can’t help but wonder if this co

RM 249k 2021 Toyota Harrier vs RM 236k Lexus UX:能买Lexus,为什么要买Toyota?

随着2021 Toyota Harrier的推出,最大的新闻或许就是8AR-FTS涡轮增压引擎的缺席了。无论如何,总会有一些人抱怨,但Toyota这样做十分合理的理由的。 Toyota Harrier要价RM 249k,不可谓昂贵。但有趣的是,Harrier与Lexus UX的价格十分相近(RM 236k - 290k)。这是否会造成品牌内部的重叠竞争?让我们深入了解,一探究竟。 价格对比(减免SST的落地价格,不包含保险费用) 车型 & 版本 价格(RM) Toyota Harrier 2.0 Luxury 249,706 Lexus UX200 Urban 236,443 Lexus UX200 Luxury 274,998 Lexus UX200 F Sport 290,335 尺寸对比 数据对比之下,Harrier的尺寸其实更大,因为它采用了TNGA-K平台上。反之,UX使用的则是更小的TNGA-C平台(Lexus只称其为GA-C)。 在进入车内后,这一差别十分明显。Harrier的空间更宽裕、更通透,而UX的车内空间仍然是一个明显的弱点。 尺寸对比 Toyota Harrie
