I've found the Motorweek show to be fairly loose on vehicle specs when reviewing vehicles I know well. Examples I recall:

- Stating in their review and on their graphics that the current gen Cadillac STS is a FWD car.

- A piece on the CTS-V when it was coming out and showing clips of a standard CTS driving by and a view of a Corvette engine bay.

The list is fine, all the models that are on the list are new for 2010. The M3 has been out for a while. Lexus only introduced the hs250h and the rx for 2010 and there isnt a suv on the list and hs250 doesnt do anything well. I dont see what all the drama is about...

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.
