New awards for Lexus LS

Lexus has won the Security Award and Best Luxury Car titles in the 2008 Fleet World Honours, for the LS series.

The Security Award reflects Lexus's high levels of protection against theft of or from its vehicles.

This achievement is also underscored by high ratings from Thatcham, the UK insurance industry's research body.

George Emmerson, chairman of the judging panel, said Lexus "does more than anyone else in the market" in terms of effective anti-theft provisions.

Retaining its Best Luxury Car title has endorsed the Lexus LS's status as a flagship limousine that delivers exceptional comfort, refinement and technical sophistication, particularly of the hybrid power LS 600h.

Ken Rogers, Fleet World editor said: "The Lexus LS stands above its worthy competitors simply because it is such a quality product, manufactured to the highest standards.

"No longer the new kid on the block, Lexus has nothing more to prove."

Andy Simpson, Manager National Corporate and Re-marketing for Lexus said: '"Where the LS range is concerned, we continue to offer an unrivalled market proposition with both conventional V8 and advanced hybrid power versions in the form of the LS 460 and LS 600h."

The Fleet World Honours were presented at a ceremony held at the Royal Automobile Club in London on 13 May.
