Easier and faster to get Lexus vehicles
With this new sales and aftersales facility, customers in Sabah can now obtain their new Lexus models faster and more easily. Until now, they have had to order their vehicles from the outlet in Sarawak or from Peninsular Malaysia.

As with all other outlets in Lexus Malaysia’s network, the new one in Kota Kinabalu offers the same high standards of personalised customer services and hospitality which the Japanese call ‘omotenashi’ that influences every aspect of the products as well.

Traditional Malaysian aesthetics
The focus on customer experiences is reflected in the elegance of the showroom’s aesthetics. The building’s sleek and minimalist facade— all clean lines and angles — gives way to an opulent and inviting interior. From batik-inspired flooring to meticulously carved wooden fittings, the showroom harmoniously incorporates elements of traditional design to pay homage to Malaysia’s artistic heritage.

Lexus Kota Kinabalu is a 3S centre which offers the full range of services to meet every need of customers. Owners will enjoy LexusCare which has a wide-ranging suite of benefits, including comprehensive roadside assistance, complimentary services, access to exclusive events, and other activities to make the ownership experience more enjoyable.
