See your dealer for details. What is it like to drive? But I've been living in Los Angeles for nearly five years now, and I'm undoubtedly rusty. This center console serves as mission control for connectivity! Normally you can only save the seat position. From the over-sized digital dashboard with a mouse that operates the infotainment screen no touch screen! And there are plenty of conveniences: front gripping cup holders, front door pockets and seat-back storage. For our money, the interior is the match, and better, of anything you would consider competition. However, look hard enough and you will find some switchgear shared with Toyota cars and the key fob looks especially low-rent for a car of this price. There may be minor changes to current model you are looking at.
There aren't any notable changes for 2019, but the 2018 model saw a slight refresh that included updated styling, a larger infotainment screen, and several new standard driver assistance features, including a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. It used to be that Lexus vehicles were so understated they were boring. An ice scraper was also included to ensure I could survive the winter weather. The infotainment system is controlled with a touchpad instead of the mouse-like control that many other Lexus models feature. The biggest change is the larger 10. Sharp lines adorn the front and rear fascia, while a sculpted profile makes the crossover look more agile than it really is.
All specifications, prices and equipment are subject to change without notice. All-wheel-drive is standard in the F sport.

It can allegedly perform electric assisted donuts and even drift in empty snow covered parking lots! In Eco, conversely, gas pedal response is incredibly lethargic. The car handled beautifully in bad weather, and I never lost traction even in a total downpour. I would recommend better tires for those looking for true deep snow traction but I was surprised by the grip of these all seasons. Then, there's the fact that the interiors are really high quality and superbly put together and it's extremely well-kitted too with a long list of equipment; so actually, you do get your money's worth. And we all know, controlling that engine is just what you need after a challenging day! Opinions expressed here are all my own.
Fortunately, there are secondary controls that let you avoid the trackpad for some functions. The Drive Mode Select function altering throttle response among Normal, Eco and Sport modes is standard, as is advanced stability control. The Remote Touch Interface uses a touch-pad controller that's slightly less fiddly than the mouse-like shuttle in other Lexus vehicles. Even the rear seats of the F-Sport get a manual recline feature while the Luxury gets electric recline adjustment.
