All-round excellence has secured the Lexus NX the Premium Car of the Year title in the Company Car and Van Awards.
The second generation of Lexus’s mid-size SUV was launched in the UK a year ago and has quickly established itself as a strong proposition in one of the most competitive premium car segments.
Andrew Walker, Company Car and Van Editor, said: “Now offered in plug-in hybrid guide, the NX ticks the company car box. Climb aboard and Lexus’s famed build quality shines through with this NX a more refined and comfortable car than its predecessor. Lexus has sensibly updated the on-board tech and the model now sits at the top table of premium SUVs.”
The NX 450h+ plug-in hybrid electric model is of particular value to business motorists with the cost benefits delivered by its highly efficient powertrain. It enjoys a particular advantage over its competitor models in that when the charge in its hybrid battery is depleted, it switches automatically to self-charging hybrid electric running, maintaining strong fuel economy and low emissions. In rival systems, the vehicle defaults to its internal combustion engine until the car can be plugged in for recharging.
Lexus’s famous reliability and customer peace of mind are supported by a market-leading manufacturer’s warranty of up to 10 years – available as standard on the NX and all other Lexus models. This comprises an initial three-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty, followed by up to a further seven years of service-activated warranty when the car is serviced at a qualifying Lexus workshop”.
