WHILE the RX is offered with turbo petrol power, we’d still recommend the hybrid version. The RX 450h shows how Lexus is spearheading hybrid tech, with economy and emissions figures that are on par with those of the smaller NX SUV.
That’s despite the fact that the RX has a V6 and can cover 0-62mph in 7.7 seconds. Like the NX, a rear-mounted electric motor provides extra drive when it’s slippery to give some assistance off road.
