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.

Price range: £41,940-£59,645 Our pick: RX 450h SE L Navi (£48,645) En­gine: 3.5-litre V6­elec­tric mo­tor, 262bhp Trans­mis­sion: E-CVT auto, part-time 4WD Top speed: 124mph Econ­omy: 54.3mpg CO2: 120g/km
