How? Mercedes is one of the worst reliable car brands while Lexus is the number one, followed by Toyota, it's parent company.

Am I the only one that has noticed Lexus is increasingly becoming popular on our roads?

As in!! I virtually every corner now, esp the es 300 and 350.

I actually thought it was price, but it's not significantly cheaper than the more popular Camry. Likewise durability and ruggedness, it's generally similar to other Toyota products, at least from the owners I've interacted with.

I think it's just the trending car for now

Good. Saw Innoson advert on TV yesterday. Was kinda happy that they have wake up. They should increase their advert. Aggressive advertisements and marketing is what they need.

The auto industry is one sad place. In america, when they first started, like Innoson, people were still using public transport expecially the tram. The tram is a small train like coach/bus that runs inside the city. The auto manufactures joined forces and purchased the Tram companies completely. The Tram people were happy. The Auto guys now got caterpillar to destroy the whole tram network. No more tram for anybody. Na im people nyash open.
Everybody was now forced to buy cars.
As you know, oyibos cannot afford to buy cars like us with complete cash. They always pay monthly installments. So that is the method they use till today.
If you don't pay, they seize the car back, give you bad credit rating, seize your bank account. They can even seize your home and send you on to the streets.

I think it's seen as a cheap luxury (compared to an equally trending but more expensive Benz).

Luxury buffs don't care much for reliability as they do for status/prestige

Benz remains a more prestigious brand than Lexus and Toyota.

How many governors or important people in your village or in this planet earth have you seen driving a Mercedes instead of the usual Landcruiser or Lexus LX?

When matured men are talking about Luxury, they're talking about matured vehicles like Lexus, Rolls Royce (BMW-oned), Cadillac not Mercedes CLA built for 17-year-old Justin Bieber fans and kids with iPhones.

Remove S600 and maybe G Wagon to some extent (even though its riddled with electric issues), there's nothing prestigious about a car brand filled with plastic-looking toys that appeals to little kids such as yahoo boys.

Exactly. Time for some action. Below is an early Lexus concept model, followed by the first generation LS-400 inside and out. This was the first Lexus car released in 1989 (pictures from Wikipedia).

OP or other good Samaritans can fill in the rest.

For more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexus_LS

LS 400 1997 - my first ever car. Gulped fuel like a desert-thirsty camel. It was a V8. Overall, a good day, it did positioned me well then and also served me.

Highly subjective.

Some luxury car buyers don't care one bit about reliability. But some do. It all depends on which target market the car manufacturer is interested in.

There are some luxury car buyers who purchase luxury cars and give the same vehicles (still running perfectly) to their children 15 to 20 years later when these kids are getting ready to go to university. (And the parents go right out and buy another Toyota/Lexus. Or two.) Those are the sort of customers who buy Toyota and Lexus. And Toyota/Lexus wants to keep them happy.

Side Note: Those customers teach a beautiful lesson about how money gets to be old and then stays old. Buy something that is well designed and well made and keep your money in the bank (or wherever else it can truly work for you). Instead of trading in for the latest model in 3 years or burning piles of cash on endless out of warranty repairs (most new luxury car buyers are smart enough to avoid the latter though).

There was a time when Mercedes Benz actually sold mostly top notch vehicles and their 'best or nothing' slogan actually meant something. Those days are long gone though - perhaps forever. Toyota/Lexus occupies that space now.

That's because they have been discontinued. Nigeria is a dumping ground for these automakers.
