Lexus is celebrating double success in the 2008 Fleet World Honours, winning the Security Award and, for the second year running, the Best Luxury Car title for the LS.
The Security Award reflects Lexus’s attention to detail in providing the highest levels of protection against theft of or from its vehicles, a commitment that is also recognised by high ratings from Thatcham, the UK insurance industry’s research body.
George Emmerson, chairman of the judging panel, said Lexus “does more than anyone else in the market” in terms of effective anti-theft provisions.
Retaining its Best Luxury Car title confirms the Lexus LS’s status as a flagship limousine that delivers exceptional comfort, refinement and technical brilliance, not least in the seamless performance of the hybrid power LS 600h.
Ken Rogers, Fleet World editor said: “The Lexus LS stands above its worthy competitors simply because it is such a quality product, manufactured to the highest standards. No longer the new kid on the block, Lexus has nothing more to prove.”
Andy Simpson, Manager National Corporate and Re-marketing for Lexus said: ‘”These awards demonstrate the high value of Lexus products to fleet customers in key areas of vehicle security and luxury. Where the LS range is concerned, we continue to offer an unrivalled market proposition with both conventional V8 and advanced hybrid power versions in the form of the LS 460 and LS 600h, both of which deliver exceptional luxury standards.”
The Fleet World Honours were presented at a ceremony held at the Royal Automobile Club in London on 13 May.
