Lexus LS Takes First Place in 2009 Motorist Choice Awards


2009 Lexus LS460

The Lexus LS was named the top vehicle of 2009 Motorist Choice Awards, a US joint survey by AutoPacific and Intellichoice that “recognizes new cars and trucks that give their owners both economic and emotional satisfaction”:

“Clearly, consumers still get great satisfaction from large and luxurious cars, despite the economy, rising fuel costs and manufacturers’ focus on smaller vehicles,” said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “The highest scoring cars in this survey are Premium Luxury Cars, Large Cars, Crossovers and SUVs, whether they’re built in the U.S., Asia or Europe. This affinity for big vehicles makes the American market unique compared to the rest of the world.”

The ES & RX also took top honors in their respective categories, making Lexus the top luxury brand of the study.

  5. Nice shot of an LS600h - short wheelbase…sweet.

  6. Well done Lexus ... great job !!

    The LS is a wonderful machine and it looks sleek aswell. If i had the money, my choice would be the LS600hl otherwise the IS-F would be the way to go.

  7. THE LS 600hL IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND ADVANCED VEHICLE IN THE WORLD! & I PLAN ON GETTING ONE in a few months. CONGRATS LEXUS!!!!!!! smile

  8. nah i think i will wink

  9. LS600hL is THE BEST SEDAN IN THE WORLD. PERIOD.
    Not Rolls-Royce, Maybach, Mercedes or BMW.
    And if anyone has a different opinion, they’re simply not entitled to it. HA, HA.
    ( Please, Lexus don’t ruin her with the face-lift ! )

  10. That’s a great picture of the std wheelbase LSh.
    It always seemed to me that Lexus first designed the LS as a LONG wheelbase & simply chopped off 4.8 ” to make the std wheelbase model, cause the proportions of the L model’s doors look perfect, while the std variant has small-ish looking rear doors.
