Lexus, because it's put out a gasoline/electric hybrid vehicle (RX400h), with another one on the way (GS450h) while Acura and Infiniti have lagged behind.

RX400h:


But if fuel economy was no concern, I'd probably go for Infiniti. More power!

Lexus I think is the best luxury car brand for the upper middle income family.

Acura and Infiniti are only available on the North American market, aren't they? They are called Honda and Nissan in Europe whatsoever.

Lexus at the top, simply because they have cars that can compete in almost every segment with Mercedes, although it's a shame that their flagship sedan LS430 is a rip off of a W140 S class. Infiniti comes second, they don't have as many cars in their fleet as Lexus, but their Q45 is a formidable competitor of LS430. Acura among the three comes last simply because, it doesn't have anything to compete with neither Lexus nor Infiniti in the luxury segment. Unfortunatelly lack of V8 engine is what really sets Acura behind the two above auto makers. As for Subaru, although this company has great products, I don't think it is on the level of the other three mentioned.

Performance wise Lexus is the best... though i dont like their car designs..they dont look as luxurious as Merc S class or a BMW 7 series...but their SUV RX 330 looks best among all SUV's...Infiniti Q45 is amazing for the price it comes at... Acura just doesnt feel that luxurious..it looks of the same level as a Nissam Altima or a Maxima... Lexus overall is the best.

Actually the LS430 is most noiseless and vibrateless in the world as it's called the flying carpet.
