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.
