Lexus has been named “best manufacturer” in Auto Express’s 2017 Driver Power survey, an accolade that reflects high public esteem for the across-the-board quality and appeal of its model range.
The survey’s findings are based on the real-world experiences of thousands of new car owners and their opinions placed Lexus highest in four out of nine qualifying categories, giving the luxury brand overall top ranking with a score of 92.29 per cent.
Graham Hope, Auto Express Editor, said: “Lexus has deservedly been crowned best car manufacturer by our readers with a set of results that demonstrates the brand’s all-round appeal, being voted number one in areas as diverse as exterior styling, engine and gearbox performance and reliability and build quality.
“We’ve always known Lexus builds great quality cars, but there’s now an added dose of desirability to the range, too. It’s no surprise that owners are so happy with their purchases.”
Ewan Shepherd, Lexus UK Director, said: “This a huge reward for Lexus and great recognition of how we are successfully pushing new boundaries in design and technology, making high-quality cars that have stand-out styling, are rewarding to drive and are genuinely desirable to own. With our unmatched experience with hybrid power in the premium market, we are also able to provide a great driving experience with exceptional efficiency.”
