Lexus Wins Top Award in Sweden and Norway

Lexus Wins Top Award in Sweden and Norway

Lexus manufactures premium luxury vehicles that do more than just reward customers with pride. They give every owner and their travel companions a time of their life, every time they experience it. Since its inception, Lexus has always done everything possible to place their customers on top of their mind. This unique trait of Lexus has even given it the thumbs-up by judges at automotive competitions all over the world.

Recently in the 2015 Auto Index survey, Lexus placed first making it the top brand for owner satisfaction in Sweden and Norway.

More than 17,000 Swedish car owners and 11,000 Norwegian car owners participated in the surveys, which measured vehicle quality, performance and comfort along with the overall dealership experience.

In Sweden, Lexus scored 897 out of 1,000 points, beating the industry average by 75 points. In Norway, Lexus broke the all-time record with 918 out of 1,000 points. This is the fourth year in a row that Lexus has topped the Auto Index study.

In Oman, Lexus enthusiasts have 10 premium models to choose from – the IS, ES, GS, LS, RX, GX, LX and the recently introduced RC, RC F and NX.

The all-new turbocharged NX combines the expertise of racers within the engineering team and the impeccable touch of Lexus luxury through an exciting and sporty design to set a new benchmark in the automotive world. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder port and direct-injection turbo engine uses an advanced valve control system to switch between Atkinson cycle and Otto cycle operation to optimize performance.

The NX with all-weather drive introduces Dynamic Torque Control AWD to provide maximum traction and cornering stability. The system continuously controls torque transfer between the front and rear wheels, using sensors for vehicle speed, steering angle, steering speed, throttle angle and yaw rate. The NX’s array of technology innovations sets new standards for future Lexus models. It features the first application of a new Lexus Remote Touch Interface (RTI) with a touch pad. A highly visible and easy-to-understand navigation screen enables users to confirm a range of information at a glance.

The look and feel of Lexus luxury detail begins before you enter the NX. A single LED elegantly streams a welcoming beam of light along the top of the handle and also to the ground as the driver approaches the vehicle. The cabin design combines structural elements with luxurious yet functional materials and textures. A neat-looking switch layout and aesthetic surfaces epitomize the NX’s interior concept – “traditional luxury accentuated by simple functional beauty”. The Lexus NX comes with a comprehensive suite of active and passive safety features. The Panoramic View Monitor, introduced into a Lexus vehicle for the first time, helps the driver avoid other vehicles and pedestrians approaching from the sides.

Frontal and side collision protection measures on the NX include the use of high tensile steel, across the centre-pillar hinge reinforcement, outer rockers and roof cross-members. The NX has 12 SRS airbags, including a dual stage driver’s airbag and knee airbag, dual-stage and dual-chamber front passenger airbag, front side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags, and offers the Lexus Pre-Collision Safety System (PCS) which uses the all-speed Adaptive Cruise Control system’s millimetre-wavelength radar sensor to detect vehicles and other obstacles.

The F SPORT variant promises a special driving experience with its aggressive looks such as a grille that’s even bolder than on the standard model. The L-mesh black grille integrates with a metallic coated lower bumper moulding, and black side mirrors match the grille. Exclusive wheels, cabin styling and trim and bolstered sports seats add to the F SPORT repertoire in the NX.

Encouraged by innovation, the process to create a Lexus vehicle is unique within the automotive industry. Taking inspiration from fields as diverse as the fashion industry, architecture, the arts and medicine, each vehicle is painstakingly crafted to meet Lexus’ exacting standards.

In Oman every Lexus vehicle comes with special benefits and privileges such as 6 years unlimited extended mileage protection and Lexus Prestige Club Card that offers 24 hours on-road assistance from AAA.
