Lexus dominates Auto Express Driver Power 2015 survey

Lexus are delighted to announce winning a number of key accolades in the Auto Express Driver Power 2015 survey! In total Six awards, which includes best manufacturer and for the IS saloon (current) best car.

The IS took first place in the category for best compact executive car with a 93.6 % satisfaction rating. This is the highest ever rating for ease of driving. This success has come off the back of growing popularity for the Lexus hybrid power, as a smooth, refined, efficient, and reliable technology.

The new NX picked up an award also, making an immediate statement, collecting the award for best car for build quality within its first 6 months in the UK market.

It doesn’t stop there, the Lexus RC-F picked up another award for the most comfortable seats!

Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, stated: ““This is superb news for Lexus, winning a hat-full of Driver Power 2015 Awards. The new IS in first position is clearly much loved by its owners, while the new NX also features highly in our survey after just a few months on sale. In fact, even some of the older Lexus models are highly ranked, showing the enduring quality of the cars and the attention to detail of the dealers. Lexus is setting the standards other car makers need to aim for.”

The full list of awards: –

Best Manufacturer

Best Car – third generation (current) Lexus IS

Best Compact Executive Car – third generation (current) Lexus IS

Best for Ease of Driving – third generation (current) Lexus IS

Best for Seat Comfort – second generation Lexus RX

The story doesn’t quite finish here; there are two more Auto Express Driver Power awards for Lexus that which will be revealed later this year.

UK Driving License changes 2015: What this means to you

All motorists need to know about the elimination of the paper counterpart to the UK photo card driving license.

On June 8th 2015 the DVLA will no longer issue or recognise the paper counterpart to the UK photo card driving license. The Paper counterpart was originally used to hold all details which the photo card could not.

What this means to you

From June 8th onwards the paper counterpart will no longer be legal and you should destroy it, but you still need to keep your photo card. Penalty points will be kept on the DVLA’S database and you will be able to check in one of three ways; Online, Phone and by post.

What happens if I only have a paper license?

If your license was issued before the introduction of the photo card in 1998 then its ok, your license will still be valid and you need to keep it.

If you need to update any details like, name address or renew your license, you will be issued with a new photo card license.

What do I now need to rent a car?

All details will be held on a new online system from the 8th of June. Organisations, businesses, police, and employers will be able to make a simple enquiry online and view all the information which used to be held on the paper counterpart.

So the same applies for car hire companies, they will be able to check your details online making the process speedier.

Why are the changes being made?

The government have a major red tape removal policy in place and aim to move this all online which in turn cuts time, and will save an estimated £8 million. Drivers will now be able to check and alter their details on-line.

Fuel price latest from Jemca

The middle of February saw the average price of petrol rise 3.64p a litre in a month from 108.28p to 111.92p per litre. Diesel is averaging 118.19p a litre, which is up 3.13p from last month.

Over the past 2 months the price you pay at the pump for petrol has risen 5.5p per litre, this is because of the price of oil changing in January between $45 and $60, and the wholesale price getting higher. We had seen the pump price as low as 106.39p at the start of February, a low which we hadn’t seen since October 2009!

At the end of winter the price of diesel had started to drop. Initially it had increased 5p per litre because of the oil price surge. On the forecourts currently, the average price you pay is 4.8p higher than when diesel prices plummeted to 113.42p on 1st February.
