Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corporation. Lexus originated from a clandestine flagship sedan project that began in 1983. Thousands of drawings and 8 full-sized clay models were built before Lexus engineers and management were happy with the design. This car became the famous LS 400 that launched the Lexus brand. Lexus engineers went to great lengths to ensure their first limousine, the LS400, had the best possible match between engine, transmission and suspension to ensure a smooth and responsive drive.
The LS400 and the ES250 models are unveiled to the world at the Detroit and Los Angeles auto shows in January 1989. The reaction of the media and public alike is overwhelmingly positive. Since 1989, Lexus has developed a reputation for vehicle reliability and customer service, as measured by independent surveys. In 2012 J.D. Power and Associates U.S. Customer Service Index (CSI) study Lexus ranks highest in customer satisfaction with dealer service among luxury brands and receives an award for a fourth consecutive year.
Building on this excellence, we always aim to go beyond the incremental, using new technology and radical, progressive thinking to innovate and push boundaries. Lexus Hybrid Drive – an engineering breakthrough that now powers the world’s first range of Full Hybrid luxury cars, including the newest intelligent sporty IS300h, the inspiring NX300h, the RX450h crossover, the GS300h and GS450h full hybrid sedans, the CT200h the world’s first full hybrid compact and the LS600h the ultimate Lexus flagship.
Lexus Hungary continue to execute the highest level of customer satisfaction with one sales and after sales outlet in Budapest and one after sales outlet in the surrounding area of Budapest.

If your car has suffered collision or elemental damages and must be repaired your insurance policy will reimburse your car rental costs for a reasonable length of time, but not more than five days, and at a maximum rate of HUF 5000 per day.
Brand Loyalty Insurance
If your vehicle has sustained collision damages so severe that repair is not feasible (write-off), we would like to offer our assistance in purchasing your new car. If you choose Lexus again, your insurance will not only cover your due damages but you will also receive a payment to the sum of 10% of the original purchase price of your previous Lexus vehicle.
If you take your car to an official Lexus repair shop we will pay half of the minimum deductibles, as set in your insurance policy. That means a significant reduction of your own repair costs.
Repair shop delivery
Any expenses incurred during roadside hauling, storage or delivery of your vehicle to a Lexus repair shop will be reimbursed to a maximum of HUF 100,000.
Active settlement of claims
If your vehicle is damaged by a third party person with proper liability insurance coverage, and if he or she admits to being liable for the damages, Lexus Casco will handle all related administration. Take your car to a Lexus repair shop and we’ll take care of both the repairs and the administration, and will settle the claims with the insurance company of the liable party. This saves you time and resources.
Reimbursement of value as new
If your car is stolen within one year after registration, or if it sustains collision damages so severe that repair would not be feasible (write-off), we will pay you the original purchase price of your vehicle (original receipt required), minus the deductibles.
No obsolescence reimbursement
Within the Lexus Casco scheme we will use original Lexus parts for all repairs, but unlike other insurance policies we will not be concerned with the value difference between the new part and the old, used and replaced part. That means you will not have to pay for the added value that comes from replacing your old, damaged parts with brand new authentic Lexus parts.
Lexus Casco and Liability Insurance - Combined package
Combine your Lexus Casco with a liability insurance cover and you can receive further discounts at every Lexus dealership in Hungary. Combined discounts may give you a maximum of 50% reduction off your liability insurance fees.
For details please contact a Lexus Retailer.
