Amazing in Motion . . . Lexus is voted Britain's Best Car Manufacturer 2015

Japanese carmaker Lexus has come out on top as Britain’s best car manufacturer in the country’s biggest car satisfaction survey.

More than 60,000 motorists had their say in the 2015 Auto Express Driver Power survey to help find out what the finest cars are to own in the UK.

Lexus, which uses the ‘Amazing in Motion’ slogan, topped the list of manufacturers with a 90.51 per cent score – the only car manufacturer to break the 90 per cent barrier. While it may come as a surprise to some, this was the second time in three years that Lexus has taken the crown after being voted the best in 2013.

It claimed top ranking in no less than four separate categories – no doubt helped by the release of the IS Mk3 - which included for reliability, seat comfort, build quality and in-car technology. Founded in only 1989, Lexus, which finished fourth in the Driver Power survey last year, also claimed second position for ride quality and ease of driving. Its only negative was its 17th placing for practicality.

Not far behind with a score of 89.94 per cent was Jaguar – owned by Tata Motors of India since 2008 - which came first for ease of driving and ride quality with runner-up places for in-car technology, performance thanks to the launch of the F-Type - and build quality. Again, it scored badly for practicality in 21st, but overall its second place in successive years is impressive when you consider the competition.

Czech Republic car manufacturer Skoda completed the top three, just marginally behind Jaguar as it finished with a score of 89.92 per cent although this was its lowest score for some period.

It finished outside of the top 10 for just one category – and that was ride quality with a 15th place finish. Unlike Lexus and Jaguar, it scored best for practicality and second for running costs. There was also a third-place finish for in-car technology. For the full list visit: www.autoexpress.co.uk/best-cars/driver-power/91289/best-car-manufacturers-2015
