All 2020 and 2021 models now come standard with the Lexus Safety System+ 2.0.1 The new system addresses the three most common accident types: frontal collisions, unintended lane departures, and nighttime accidents. It includes Pre-Collision System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, Intelligent High Beams, Road Sign Assist and Lane Tracing Assist. Similar features are only available as added options for Audi models.
Lexus models feature a long list of standard technology that guests love. These convenient features include: Alexa Skill (home-to-car), power driver’s seat, Smart Access keyless entry and push-button start. Audi, on the other hand, charges extra for keyless entry on all their vehicles. Many other features that are standard for Lexus, like Amazon Alexa home-to-car skill , are only available at an additional cost for most Audi models.
An additional perk of purchasing a new Lexus: every new Lexus comes with two (2) complimentary scheduled maintenance services.2 The first scheduled maintenance service occurs at 6 months or 5,000 miles (whichever comes first) and the second at 12 months or 10,000 miles (whichever comes first). You can hit the road with confidence knowing that your new vehicle will get professional attention from Lexus Certified Technicians using Genuine Lexus Parts — at no cost to you for the first two visits. Audi does not provide any complimentary scheduled maintenance services for new vehicle purchases.
Since the introduction of the first-generation hybrid system, Lexus engineers have continuously improved the technology to make it more efficient, compact, lightweight and powerful. These advanced hybrids deliver a variety of advantages over a conventional powertrain, including instantaneous acceleration and superior MPG without sacrificing the luxury you crave. As of 2019, over 1.45 million units have been sold globally.
Currently, you’ll find a total of 6 hybrid models in the Lexus lineup, including sedans, SUVs, and a coupe. Buyers will have trouble finding a hybrid vehicle which meets their needs at Audi, which only offers one SUV and one sedan hybrid model.
Lexus Hybrid Lineup
When you drive a Lexus, you’ll enjoy the confidence that comes with owning a vehicle with greater resale value than most brands. In the Best Resale Value Awards,3 the experts at Kelley Blue Book named their top picks for vehicles with superior resale value in their respective segments. For 2020, four different Lexus models took home the award in their segments. Conversely, Audi did not manage to earn any first place awards in the 2020 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards.
Lexus continues to set the benchmark for refined luxury. Across the entire Lexus lineup you’ll find that luxury comes standard, that our vehicles are built to a higher standard and that they create an experience that can only be described as AMAZING.
