Lexus RX 450h SUV (2015 - )

For buyers looking for a large, premium SUV that’s a little different, the Lexus RX is one to consider. Available only as a petrol hybrid, and with five or seven seats (see our separate review on the RX L), the RX takes quirky Japanese styling to the maximum while preserving high levels of comfort, space and tech inside.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Bear in mind that there’s no Government grant for hybrids, so there’s no discount other than the one you manage to negotiate. If you want the seven seat version, the RX L, that’s about £2,000 more than the standard version. If you need a large family car but have access to a company car scheme, the RX makes a lot of sense. The Lexus has a Benefit In Kind rate of 30 per cent as of April 2020, compared with half that for some of its rivals like the hybrid Volvo XC90. Bear in mind, though, that because the Lexus’ hybrid system is ‘self-charging’ rather than a plug-in arrangement, there’s no London congestion charge exemption.

Residual value is predicted to be about half of the original price after three years.

Fuel costs, which would normally be high given the size and weight of the RX, plus the inclusion of a V6 petrol engine, are somewhat mitigated by the hybrid system on board, which means you can average about 35mpg.
