2011 Lexus RX 350Enlarge Photo
What a year Lexus and parent company Toyota have had--beat up on runaway cars only to have the data show it was the drivers' fault, and hammered further with recalls over faulty parts. But that's not keeping the company from moving forward with its 2011 lineup, though most of the cars in the range receive only minor updates. We've got the full scoop on each car, from the HS 250h all the way up to the mighty LS 600h L, including prices.

2011 Lexus HS 250h
Priced from: $35,100.
All-new for the 2010 model year when it went on sale in August, 2009, the 2011 Lexus HS 250h gets only a pair of new exterior colors: Satin Cashmere and Deep Sea Mica. They replace Golden Almond Metallic and Black Sapphire Pearl, repsectively, while Aurora White Pearl is discontinued. The rest of the car carries over from 2010, including the 35 mpg city and 34 mpg highway EPA fuel economy rating.

2011 Lexus IS Sedan
Priced from: $32,145
More substantial changes are in store for the IS Sedan, with the addition of the IS 350 all-wheel-drive model, new for 2011. The optional F-Sport package gets visual updates, and all IS Sedans get new front styling and interior trim.
The IS 350 AWD model features the same 306-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 as the standard IS 350 rear-drive model, but joins the IS 250 AWD to make two all-weather options in the IS range.

2011 Lexus IS Convertible
Priced from: $41,060
The IS convertible, or IS C, gets a few minor interior and exterior appearance tweaks for 2011 despite just going on sale earlier this year. LED daytime running lights join the optional HID package, Deep Sea Mica replaces Ultrasonic Blue in the color scheme, and black metallic and silver-finished trim add to the look. The optional Luxury package can also now be chosen with either Saddle Tan or Light Gray interiors in addition to the previous black.
