Lexus' styling has gone off the deep end with sharp angles and an aggressive aesthetic, and it looks like the next generation of its popular RX SUV will similarly upgrade its look during next week's New York auto show.
The following cars represent the most technically advanced available.
The 2015 Lexus NX 200t's tech, amenities, and fuel efficiency stack fairly evenly with the competition, but its slight power advantage and unique styling push it above the class average.
The 2015 Lexus IS 250 is a solid choice for a sporty commuter, but its nagging electronics keep it from reaching its potential as a true "sports sedan."
Lexus' new RC F coupe is a gorgeous ride. And while styling is subjective, its speed is absolute.

Excellent app integration with the cabin tech suite and excellent fuel economy are high points for the 2014 Lexus CT 200h, but it needs more power to justify its F Sport tuning and looks.
With its new appearance, 2014 Lexus GX 460 is a competent full-size luxury SUV, but its powertrain and dashboard tech could also use an update to keep up with the competition.
The 2014 Lexus LX 570 blends the off-road pedigree of the legendary Land Cruiser with on-road comfort and manners befitting its luxury Lexus badge.
The 2015 Lexus RX 350 remains a comfortable, easy-driving SUV with a great amount of space, but its features, especially in the driver-assistance category, fall behind those of the competition.
The 2014 Lexus RX 450h isn't a sexy choice, but it is a strong performer and a comfortable luxury cruiser with one of the quietest power trains in its class.
The 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport looks like a boy racer, but it has the soul (and slightly soft performance) of a grand tourer.
