Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.

Generation Gap is back after a month-long hiatus...this time, I’ve lined up the generations of everyone’s favorite Japanese luxobarge: the Lexus LS (shaddup and get out of here you Infiniti Q45 fanboys...just kidding.) I have a feeling the first gen (the original German-beating luxury giant) will win but let’s find out...as always, vote in the poll and explain your choice in the comments below.

The options:

First Generation (XF10) 1989 - 1994

Second Generation (XF20) 1994 - 2000


Third Generation (XF30) 2001 - 2006 (and facelift) (Thanks to chevyfan029 drives a Ford and m2m, apex detective for reminding me the facelift exists!)


Fourth Generation (XF40) 2006 - Present (and facelift)
