The Lexus IS saloon has been an impressive and well-received member of the range, and to add to its reputation, the model has won the 'Most Reliable Car' at the 2016 Carbuyer Awards.
Given to the IS after ranking incredibly well in the website’s Driver Power survey for this year, the saloon was given a high place on the list after customers gave their opinions on the vehicle, with many of those being very good.
After finishing first overall in reliability, the IS came sixth on build quality, giving it an overall ranking of third out of all cars on sale today.
When giving Lexus the award, Carbuyer's editor Stuart Milne said:
With sophisticated suspension, extreme attention to detail and an excellently designed interior, the IS is both comfortable and smooth to drive. Thanks to an advanced aerodynamic design, it is also quiet inside even at high speeds.
Drive Mode Select also helps give the driver the performance they want, with Eco mode reducing emissions while conserving fuel, Normal mode offers all aspects of driving for a more pleasurable drive, while Sport mode makes the car more responsive and sharper.
Available as both the 200t and 300h models, the IS can offer both pure petrol power and a combined hybrid version to help with efficiency and fuel economy. Starting from £29,995, the award-winning IS is available from your nearest Inchcape Lexus Centre.
