Lexus UK is delighted when its cars, services and people are recognised for their achievements in the automotive industry and beyond. Last year, critics and motorists alike were generous enough to bestow numerous awards, including multiple repeat wins in the vital areas of reliability and customer satisfaction, as well as for our best-selling NX model. Which begs the question: What will this year bring? Over the next 12 months this Lexus awards 2024 article will be updated with the latest honours. So watch this space!
Lexus awards 2024:
Record annual sales in UK last year
Lexus achieved record global sales results in 2023 with 824,258 new cars sold, an increase of 32% on the previous year’s total. The growth is attributed to strong demand, particularly in Europe, North America and Japan. Among these, the European market saw a 46% rise to more than 69,000 vehicles, of which a record 15,963 were attributed to the UK. What’s more, while the global sales ratio of electrified models is 47%, in the UK the electrified share is above 99%.
LBX awarded Car of the Year and Small SUV of the Year by What Car?
The Lexus LBX was doubly honoured in the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2024. In its first and highly significant major award, our new compact SUV was not only named overall Car of the Year 2024 but also winner of the Small SUV of the Year 2024.
Commenting on this accolade, What Car? editor Steve Huntingford said: “The What Car? Car of the Year title is reserved for the model which has moved things on farthest in the past 12 months, and this year that’s the Lexus LBX. Despite competing in the hugely competitive small SUV market, it’s a better all-rounder than every rival, not least because it is the first car in the class to combine hybrid efficiency with big-car luxury. And at a time when prices seem to be going through the roof, it offers these strengths for an amazingly tempting price.”
Lexus wins What Car? Reliability Award for seventh consecutive year
Lexus continued its trophy haul at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2024 with another win for reliability. Commenting on this particular category, What Car? editor Steve Huntingford said: “Unlike other What Car? award categories, this one required no debate because in our latest Reliability Survey, Lexus finished top for the seventh consecutive year. Not only are its cars among the most dependable you can buy, dealers dealt with the few faults that did crop up swiftly, efficiently and without charging any of the Lexus owners who told us about their cars. With sister brand Toyota finishing second in the survey, it’s clear these standards are company-wide.”
