    My car

    This is my third new RX 450 and they are the best cars I have ever owned,reliable comfortable,fast and economical around 31 mpg not bad for a 3.5 litre petrol engine. I am looking to replace my 2010 model with a new one soon.

    My car

    Coming from a 2005 Lexus RX300 this car is a large step up. I have the F Sport version which handles much better than the other models as well as providing exclusive styling and more equipment. Firstly, the technology behind the car is amazing, you cant even tell the hybrid drivetrain is working, its pretty much silent. Definitely the best refinement in its class. When flooring it, the car shifts, faster than my wifes Audi Q7 3.0 TDI which is on a 12 plate so is the latest 245bhp engine.

    Handling is good, obviously you have to realise its not a car so there is a little lean in the corners but not much. More than an X5 but then again, this car has a much better ride than any of its competition.

    The main reason I bought this car was the equipment, its basically fully loaded and spec for spec, is cheaper than all its competition. The equivalent Audi Q7 or BMW X5 would cost over £55k.

    Also, the car attracts a lot of attention, let me tell you, loads!! Ive always received compliments on the car whereas my wifes Q7 has rarely done, maybe because my car not mainstream like the BMW'S and Mercedes'. Mainly its because it looks different and the F Sport design is very pleasing to the eye. Interior wise, the car is great. It has amazing little details like windows which slow down just before shutting so the sound is satisfying. The doors are really heavy and close with a great thud. The leather is of great quality, much softer than the german cars who seem to prefer hard lea
