For some automakers, luxury and performance are mutually exclusive qualities. Luckily for drivers who aren’t interested in compromise, Lexus is a brand that’s committed to instilling its lineup with both.
Many shoppers at our Virginia Lexus dealership tend to think of the F series when spirited performance is mentioned, and we don’t blame them. After all, models like the RC F and the upcoming GS F are renowned for their power and handling among performance fans.
They aren’t the only intense performers in the Lexus garage, though. Every vehicle that sports a Lexus logo is sure to deliver when it comes to exhilarating thrills and responsive handling.
When you visit us to see the selection of new Lexus vehicles at our Virginia showroom, you’re sure to be enthralled by the sheer commitment to outstanding engineering that permeates each model of the Lexus lineup.
If you’re eager to dominate in any terrain, start by checking out the automaker’s latest SUVs. The flagship LX sports a six-speed sequential-shift transmission paired with Multi-Terrain Select. The result is a model that can optimize performance for a range of traction and terrain scenarios.
The GX builds on the same principles, adding the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System to the equation. With front and rear stabilizer bars, this system allows for less lean when cornering on the road and improved grip on uneven terrain.
Impressive handling isn’t limited to SUVs, either. From the twin-scroll turbocharger of the NX 200t to the MacPherson struts of the RX, coupes and sedans are built to dominate the road, too.
No matter what type of vehicle fits your lifestyle, you can count on an exciting driving experience thanks to Lexus’ commitment to engineering.

September is under way, and you know what that means: it’s back to school season! Whether you’re a new driver finishing up high school or you’re headed back to college, there’s no denying that students lead hectic lives. What better way to tackle your busy schedule than with a car that’s as smart as you are?
At our Loudoun area Honda dealership, we were eager to study up on a recent post from Bankrate.com. The site compiled its list of the 10 Best Back-To-School Cars Under $20,000, and we were excited – though not surprised – to see that the 2015 Honda Fit made the grade!
The writers for the site were impressed by the Fit’s price, fuel economy, and even its cool factor. As they put it, “it is sporty and refined for its price, with a flexible interior.”
A clever compact with plenty of style and versatility, this new Honda at our Loudoun area dealership is certainly a standout option for students. Whether you’re commuting to class or planning ahead for a spring break road trip, you’re sure to love the Fit’s impressive fuel efficiency.
On top of that, this youthful hatchback offers plenty of cargo space to handle extracurricular activities with ease. The passenger seat and second row Magic Seat fold flat quickly, with a 60/40 split in the rear allowing for plenty of combinations. The Magic Seat also folds up to allow for an increase in vertical space when you need it.
No matter what your major is, it doesn’t take a valedictorian to see that the Honda Fit is a smart choice for busy students with active lifestyles. To learn more, or to schedule a test drive, be sure to contact Honda of Chantilly online or to call our team at (703) 633-2400 today!

It’s no secret that the vehicles at our Bowie area Hyundai dealership are loaded with innovative features. From the Hyundai blueLink connected car system to navigation, roadside assistance, and vehicle health reporting, the automaker is on the cutting edge when it comes to keeping drivers connected.
If you’re an Android user, there’s even more opportunity to stay connected and in control by syncing the 2015 Sonata with your compatible smartphone. Better yet, the software installation is quick, easy, and can be done from the comfort of your own home!
If you prefer to have one of our expert team members get you all set up, we invite you to bring your 2015 Hyundai Sonata to our Bowie area dealer. If you prefer to install the software at home, you’ll need your car and a FAT16 or FAT32 formatted USB drive with at least 1 GB of open space; the total space of the drive must not be more than 32 GB.
Begin by signing up for or logging into MyHyundai.com. Connect your USB drive, and download the Android Auto software update. When completed, remove the USB drive and head out to your vehicle.
Your car will be running while you update the software, which will take about forty minutes; be sure to complete this process outdoors, in a well ventilated area. Start the car, connect your USB drive, and press the “Setup” button. On the screen, press “System Info,” and then “Update.” During the update process, the screen will reboot three times.
While you wait, remember to leave your car on and to keep your USB drive connected. Once everything is updated and complete, you can disconnect your USB drive and shut off your car.
To see the process in action, and to learn more about your newfound connectivity, check out this video from Hyundai USA:
