The Japanese-built Toyota Lexus LS 400 has beaten its European rivals to win the Wheels motoring magazine 1990 Car of the Year Award.
The Lexus model is almost faultless as a luxury car, the editor of Wheels, Phil Scott, said today in announcing the award.
The Lexus received seven of the 11 votes from the judging panel of motoring experts. The remaining four judges opted for Toyota’s minivan, the Tarago, giving Japan’s wealthiest car manufacturer a clean sweep.
It was the first time in the 27 years of the award that a Toyota has won.
