It probably does of any luxury car currently in the American market, IF
you consider, by the term "luxury car", simply a vehicle with an upmarket/premium nameplate. The HS does indeed carry the Lexus namplate, though it is not anywhere near what I would consider a true luxury car, which would, IMO, be along the lines of the Lexus LS460 or Mercedes S-Class.
So, I think I can see John Davis's reasoning on it, but only on a technicality. I also see your reasoning, on a more practical matter.
