Lexus Australia to introduce five-year new-car warranty for new UX, NX, RX, LX, ES, LS and LC from 2022 - but there's good news for 2021 buyers

The next-generation LX upper-large SUV will launch with Lexus Australia’s new five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty.

Lexus Australia has confirmed it will extend its standard new-vehicle warranty from 2022.

The current four-year/100,000km term will increase to a five-year/unlimited-kilometre period from January 1 next year, matching that offered locally by Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Genesis.

That said, Lexus Australia’s first all-electric model, the UX300e small SUV, launches this month with the new coverage.

And for Australian buyers who took delivery of a new Lexus vehicle in 2021, their warranty will be extended to the new length at no cost.

For those that opt for a Lexus Australia model with a hybrid or all-electric powertrain, the battery is now covered by a separate 10-year/unlimited-kilometre term, up from an eight-year/160,000km period.

Next year is shaping up as a big one for Lexus Australia, with the second-generation NX mid-size SUV’s staggered launch starting in January, while the next-generation LX upper-large SUV is due later on. The fifth-generation RX large SUV is also expected in 2022.
