Lexus Safety System Utica MI

Safety comes standard on all new Lexus models

All 2021 Lexus 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. Honda offers a similar system, but it is not standard across their 2021 lineup.




Lexus models come standard with modern in-car technologies like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Lexus+ Alexa. These modern in-car technologies are only available on Honda’s higher trim levels and in most cases at an additional cost.

Lexus also provides a long list of standard and available convenience features that guests love including: power driver’s seat, power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, Smart Access keyless entry, push-button start and hands-free trunk.


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. Honda does not offer any complimentary maintenance with vehicle purchases.



The J.D. Power 2021 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS), ranks Lexus the highest in overall vehicle dependability among all brands with a score of 81 PP100.3 This is the ninth time in 10 years that Lexus has received this honor!

The study measures the number of problems per 100 vehicles (PP100) experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old vehicles. The study looks for 177 specific problems and a lower score reflects higher dependability. In this year’s study, Honda was given a score of 145 PP100, which means 64 additional problems were reported by Honda owners compared to Lexus.
