Lexus named most reliable brand for sixth time in the Auto Trader New Car Awards 

13 June 2024
  • Lexus reaffirms its reliability reputation, taking top honour for sixth time in seven years 
  • NX 350h mid-size SUV is the hybrid car of the year 
  • Results based on the opinions and real-world experiences of more than 200,000 UK motorists 

Lexus has no equal when it comes to reliability, taking the title of most reliable brand for the sixth time in seven years in the Auto Trader New Car Awards, announced at a presentation ceremony in London today.


The occasion also saw the Lexus 350h mid-size SUV collect the honour for best hybrid car. 

The awards are distinguished by the fact they are determined by the views and real-world experiences of more than 200,000 UK motorists who responded to Auto Trader’s online survey. 

Erin Baker, Auto Trader Editorial Director, said: “Quality, reliability and comfort were three characteristics that came out of our survey word banks in this category. One respondent summed up the thoughts of many other Lexus owners when they said they regarded it as one of the world’s leading car makers and couldn’t think of any other brand that offers such a complete package.” 

Turning to the hybrid car of the year award, she said: “Lexus is famed for its hybrid models and it has clearly perfected the formula with the refined NX 350h.” 

She highlighted owners’ praise for the car’s comfort, comprehensive equipment specification and efficiency for a vehicle of its size. 

Chris Hayes, Director Lexus in the UK, commented: “These awards are highly valued, not least for the fact they represent the opinions of our customers. Their positive opinions are the best reward for the efforts everyone at Lexus makes to deliver an amazing ownership experience.”
