    From what I’ve heard this vehicle is not far off Lexus standards. Amazing achievement for such a young company.

    @Doug I belive they are very good cars but Lexus is really too high I think, I imagine that it would be more around Korean Standard… but then who knows ? No western journalist tested it yet.

    I hope they will succeed ! Go Luxgen, Go Taiwan !
