Lexus wins six Auto Express Driver Power awards in 2015 Survey

Lexus dominated the Auto Express Driver Power 2015 survey, receiving six awards including those for best manufacturer and – for the IS saloon – best car.


The IS also took top spot in the category for best compact executive car with a 93.96 per cent satisfaction rating and is the highest-rated model for ease of driving. Its success reflects the growing popularity and appreciation of Lexus hybrid power as a smooth, refined, efficient and reliable technology.

The new Lexus NX compact SUV also made an immediate impact, being named best car for build quality within its first six months on the road in the UK.

Lexus’s achievements extend all the way to making the most comfortable seats (in the RX).

Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, said: “This is superb news for Lexus, winning a hat-full of Driver Power 2015 Awards.

The new IS in first position is clearly much loved by its owners, while the new NX also features highly in our survey after just a few months on sale. In fact, even some of the older Lexus models are highly ranked, showing the enduring quality of the cars and the attention to detail of the dealers.

Lexus is setting the standards other car makers need to aim for.”

Richard Balshaw, Lexus Director, said: “Auto Express’s Driver Power survey has impressive reach and relevance, making these awards all the more valuable.

The opinions of Britain’s motorists are the best advocacy we could hope for as we increase our model range, bringing exciting new designs and more advanced technologies to the luxury car market. Furthermore, we remain committed to our original concept of delivering the best customer service, something everyone in Lexus has worked for since our brand was launched here 25 years ago.”
