How a vehicle from Lexus affects insurance costs
Insurance companies look at a car’s safety ratings, its likelihood of being stolen and how costly it is to replace or repair, among other factors, when determining the cost of insurance.
Lexus vehicles’ excellent safety ratings and the fact that they aren’t commonly targeted by thieves help to bring down the cost of insurance compared with other luxury car marques. However, because a Lexus is considered a luxury car and has a higher price tag, your premium is likely to be higher than with a lower-priced vehicle.

Lexus touts the LC Hybrid as “a profound shift in hybrid performance.” Although the LC Hybrid is a certified super ultra-low emission vehicle, it can still perform, with an aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.33, a top track speed of 155 mph and an acceleration of 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds.
