Already in 2020 Lexus UK has picked up where it left off in 2019, winning an award from What Car?, one of the most prestigious car buying publications. Throughout the year we’ll update this article as we receive more recognition for our vehicles and the reputation of our brand. Can we eclipse 2019’s end-of-year total of 25 awards? Watch this space…
In January, the world-famous lasting quality of Lexus cars earned the company the 2020 What Car? Reliability Award. Its success is further, independent validation of the exceptional durability of the self-charging hybrid technology that now powers 99 per cent of the vehicles it sells.
The honour follows on from Lexus’s exceptional performance in the 2019 What Car? Reliability Survey, in which the brand was the highest-ranked manufacturer for the third year running and its CT 200h hybrid luxury hatchback recorded a 100 per cent fault-free performance across the previous 12 months.
What Car? Editor Steve Huntingford (right of picture, above) acclaimed Lexus’s track record, saying: “Lexus managed a clean sweep of wins the latest What Car? Reliability Survey, claiming the top spot for cars aged up to five years old, with an almost perfect 99 per cent, and for those aged six to 15 years old. A score of 93.3 per cent in the latter category demonstrates just how well the Japanese luxury brand builds its cars and why it’s such a worthy winner of our 2020 Reliability Award.”
