Provided you aren’t the one driving, of course
We've all been there: Snoozing in the backseat of a Grab or a friend's car as it crawls along EDSA, only to wake up at our destination wishing we had another half-hour stuck in traffic to relax and recharge. "
Manila-proof? More like life-proof
The Toyota Alphard is basically van goals, right? It's comfortable and spacious, and riding in it can make you forget about the gridlock and chaos happening outside. It's Manila-proof, as we all like to say.But what if we

We think we’ve got the answer to your dilemma

Because of increasingly stringent emissions laws
Much has happened since Lexus first launched the RC F. Countless iterations of the BMW M4. A new, quite bombastic Mercedes-AMG C63, and a new, slightly less bombastic Audi RS5. Time for a wee bit of a freshen-up, then, to
Just a concept but it looks production-ready
Come for the Supra, stay for the LC Convertible. That appears to be Toyota and Lexus's thinking when it comes to next week's Detroit motor show. Not content with the Supra's much-hyped comeback stealing the show, there's
Check out the first trailer

At the Detroit show in January
Unfortunately, the Lexus RC F was never the sharp samurai sword to chop down the BMW M4. Even with a characterful V8 and left-field looks, it was undone by its chubbiness. At 1,800kg, it was 200kg heavier than an M4

Where the craziness of the grid spectacle is beaten only by the intensity of the racing
Everything is familiar, except it isn't. Not quite. There is shotgun neon, and purposeful bustle. There are huddles of shops, striding people and the pulse of commerce, industrious swarms of taxis and more neon, layered upon each other in a deluge
When we talk about Lexus
We don't often get updates on our Traffic Stoppers' lives (lest we be seen as stalkers), but even that being the general rule, the exception still lies when said Traffic Stoppers are our close personal friends. This is one of those
And what's in store for its future
Koji Sato: The chassis and drivetrain [of the Super GT cars] are different from the production car. But the upper body section is the same shape as the commercial car. So we test many things for the LC's dynamic performance on
The model that launched a Banawe taillight revolution
The Lexus IS200 and its JDM-only sibling the Toyota Altezza were first introduced in Japan in late 1998, and in western markets a year later. Both cars were meant to take on the then unrivaled compact sports-sedan segment king, the
