LONDON, England - Lexus has been named "top manufacturer" by Auto Express, returning to No.1 after four years as runner-up.

The results from the Auto Express Driver Power Survey, based on the opinions and real-life experiences of more than 45 000 UK drivers, reflect the owner-appeal and performance of Lexus models.


Steve Fowler, Auto Express editor-in-chief, said: “Lexus takes a well deserved top spot in the Driver Power 2013 manufacturers' chart. The brand finished first in three out of the 10 categories in our survey and second in two others – an impressive result.

“More than anything, Lexus customers praised their cars’ premium qualities - they’re expertly put together, packed with gadgets and a pleasure to drive.”

Richard Balshaw, the UK's Lexus division director, said: “We’re delighted to have earned this award again - the competition becomes tougher every year.

“Lexus came to the market promising to deliver a new and better customer experience and we’ve stayed true to that promise by creating cars that deliver luxury, style, reliability and a great driving experience."
