LEXUS LC HONOURED AS BEST COUPÉ IN THE UK CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS
The newly launched Lexus LC has won the title of best coupé in the 2018 UK Car of the Year Awards.
The model now goes forward for consideration for the overall car of the year title, which will be announced at the end of January.
The judging panel, comprising some of the UK’s most experienced and best-respected motoring journalists, was fulsome in its praise for the LC, describing it as “stunning to look at, great to drive” and “the most head-turning car I drove in 2017”.
Another summed up: “Why do you buy a coupé? To stand out, to be slightly different from the norm? That’s what the Lexus LC does with aplomb. And it’s backed up with generous tech and reliability.”
Ewan Shepherd, Director of Lexus in the UK, said: “The LC is a pivotal car in expressing the exciting new direction Lexus is taking in terms of design, engineering and performance, so it is hugely rewarding to see it being honoured as the best in its class in the UK Car of the Year Awards. It forms part of a comprehensive renewal of our model range, a programme that has just delivered the new LS flagship saloon as well as the revised IS and CT and new NX during the past few months. These new models are building our brand appeal and attracting new customers to Lexus.”
Launched last summer, the LC is a new flagship coupé for Lexus which showcases the company’s latest advances in design, engineering and technology. It is available with a choice of two powertrains: the LC 500h uses a petrol-electric hybrid V6 powertrain equipped with Lexus’s new Multi Stage Hybrid System, while the LC 500 is powered by a naturally aspirated 471bhp V8 engine, coupled to the world’s first 10-speed direct shift automatic transmission.

LEXUS DEALERSHIPS ACCLAIMED AS BRITAIN’S FINEST
Delivering the best customer service has always been a top priority for Lexus and its performance remains the best in the motor industry, according Auto Express’s Driver Power survey. Lexus has taken top ranking for the quality of its dealerships in the study, based on the real-world experiences of thousands of UK motorists.
Lexus’s overall 90.66 per cent score reflects how the spirit of Omotenashi – the best traditions of Japanese hospitality – influence every aspect of the brand, from designing cars that protect and anticipate the needs of driver and passengers, to providing welcoming, professional and courteous service to every customer.
The result completes a triple Driver Power success for Lexus this year, having already been named “best manufacturer” and taking the “best premium SUV” title with the RX 450h.
Driver Power gathered the opinions of Auto Express readers about the franchised dealerships they use, covering issues such as the facilities available on-site, availability of courtesy cars, staff politeness, the standard and speed of work carried out, clear communications and value for money.
The findings produced excellent scores for Lexus across the board, the magazine noting how it provides “by far the cleanest and most comfortable” facilities, with work done by technicians who are “clearly among the best in the business”. Lexus also emerged as the best brand for the standard and efficiency of service, maintenance and repair work.
Ewan Shepherd, Director of Lexus in the UK, said: “The results of the Driver Power survey are a tremendous reward for everyone who works in our centres across the country. It is thanks to their hard work and commitment that we are able to deliver on our promise of consistently providing the highest levels of customer care and service. It is our aim to continue to raise the bar, going beyond our customers’ expectations and setting new standards for the motor industry.”

LEXUS NAMED "BEST MANUFACTURER" IN THE AUTO EXPRESS DRIVER POWER SURVEY
Lexus is the People's Choice as Manufacturer in the 2017 Auto Express 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.”
