Lexus RX 450h
To keep its flagship SUV model up-to-date, Lexus has introduced a new Advance trim to the RX 450h range, offering new 19-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof and LED lights as standard kit.
Under the edgy bodywork remains Lexus’ second-generation Hybrid drive system, featuring a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and two electric motors developing a combined 295bhp.
The powertrain on the Lexus RX 450h Advance is accomplished, but not as efficient as you might think. The claimed fuel economy of 44.8mpg is unrealistic – we struggled to return more than 27mpg. On the plus side, CO2 emissions of 145g/km mean the RX 450h is one of the cleanest 4x4s on sale, and among the cheapest for company car buyers.
