Lexus Wins Five Motorist Choice Awards

The fifth annual Motorist Choice Awards have been announced, and Lexus has making a serious showing in the winner’s circle, taking 5 of the 15 premium categories.

Now, these aren’t your typical segment awards, instead, winners are chosen by a group of 42,000 consumers, who rate the vehicles based on “lifestyle categories” — here are the Lexus results:

  • Eco-Friendly: Lexus RX Hybrid
  • High Tech: Lexus RX Hybrid
  • Youthful: Lexus IS
  • City Car: Lexus LS
  • Value Car: Lexus RX Hybrid

Regardless of the funny category names, the RX 450h put on a dominant performance, underlining just how well-regarded Lexus’ bestseller is.

However, I had to laugh at the Lexus LS being named the #1 City Car — ultimate comfort, yes, but from my own experience of driving and parking a LS 460L in the city, I have to wonder at what the award criteria was. Pothole absorption, maybe?

These awards don't give Lexus any pride... they just make people think twice and have doubt.
