Auto Trader Verdict:
Bold looks, a beautifully finished cabin and hushed hybrid powertrain all count in the RX's favour. Incredibly high equipment levels, strong residuals and low C02 emissions should also make it popular with company car drivers; however, its mild-hybrid powertrain is showing its age. The large battery pack limits boot space, the RX has much less grip than other SUVs, and in reality, the fuel economy (and range) will be average at best. It's really soothing to drive, but trails its rivals in a number of areas.
