In the hybrid version is now the only RX in the UK, in a market dominated by large engines.Lexus RX 450H. Lexus’s with the petrol/electric technology is by fewer particulate emissions and a powertrain compared with rivals. But if the headline figures for the new are anything to go by, class-leading CO2 emissions are on the too. This new RX450h has 44.8mpg on the official European cycle, which makes its carbon dioxide emissions just 145g/km. That’s not substantially less than the Range Rover Sport but also less than superminis. That means it is for a cheap tax disc and a low benefit-in-kind On first encounter you could be for thinking the new Lexus RX is a facelift of the model, unless you saw the two side by Even then, Lexus it has maintained some continuity the old model. It’s only longer, is 40mm wider, 10mm higher and has a 25mm wheelbase. But the proportions are still the cab-forward look suggests rather

than true muscular It’s certainly a clean as testified by its drag coefficient of 0.32. The front grille, follows the latest interpretation of L-Finesse design language, is elaborate and recognisable than of the previous RX. The angle of the rear rearmost side window and edge of the rear lights all — a neat piece of design. The RX450h’s cabin is one of its strongest It’s a comfortable environment in to spend time and has enough materials and clever details to the car feel suitably expensive. refinement – a result of a class-leading coefficient as well as the hybrid and quiet petrol motor – is
one of its biggest plus points. A SUV seating position has the driver high on soft, flat-cushioned that offer a very range of adjustability. Forward is also good, although the side and rear cameras are for judging the car’s bulbous in tight parking spots. If we the badge logic, the Lexus should provide performance to that of a 4.5-litre V8 rather the 3.5-litre V6 actually under the With the Lexus’s total of 295bhp, that claim a little doubtful next to the X5, Mercedes-Benz ML, Range Rover and Cayenne, which each at least 350bhp and some more. And sure enough, our 0-60mph time of
8.2sec confirms that the simply doesn’t have the to compete with the most SUVs. A fairer comparison is the Volvo XC90 V8 and diesel The bottom line is that for the of driving the RX responds more quickly enough for most needs.

The SE-L car we tested came air suspension, but without the Active System (available only on the 
SE-L Premier). In our experience, combination makes for a Lexus works better in some than others. Its forte is cruising, where it is stable air suspension automatically lowers at and rides comfortably. Somewhat it is also relatively nimble country. While the RX remains a car unlikely to excite the enthusiast or the X5 dynamically, this latest is more agile than the it replaces. The revised, quicker and additional

rebound springs give a turn-in and a more controlled rate. What it isn’t, is particularly enjoyable to drive mostly because the electric is devoid of feel. Grip aren’t especially high the eco tyres, either. But this is unlikely to trouble many owners.
