With five-star ratings for reliability across its range and four cars commended with ‘Best Buy’ status, Lexus leads the way in this year’s Which? Car Guide.

The Which? report, based on its own extensive tests and consumer feedback on reliability from more than 40,000 car owners, names the UK’s best and worst car buys.

Faring particularly well in the diverse and fiercely competitive larger SUV segment, which encompasses family-friendly load-luggers alongside the most luxurious high-riders, the Lexus RX took the prized Which? ‘Our Pick’ spot.  As well as being noted for ticking all of the boxes as a luxury SUV, Which? customer survey results position the range-topping Lexus hybrid SUV as “one of the most reliable new cars you can buy”.

Another class leader, the Lexus CT 200h takes top spot as the Which? ‘Our Pick’ medium car.  Survey results show that 94 per cent of CT 200h remain trouble-free in the first three years of ownership, proving it to be the most reliable medium car you can buy new today.

Alongside the recognition for individual vehicles, the Which? Car Guide places Lexus as its carmaker of the year in its brand reliability table, with 64 per cent of Lexus models on sale receiving ‘Best Buy’ status.
