The Lexus LM is a comfortable car to be driven around in, with unmatched interior quality. The raucous CVT gearbox is its only real vice, and a plug-in hybrid or all-electric version would be welcomed by company car drivers.

While it might be the entry-level trim, the LM comes with loads of standard equipment, including 19in alloy wheels, a head-up display and a Mark Levinson stereo with 21-speakers. The main difference between the LM and the top-spec Takumi is actually the number of seats – the LM gets seven, while the more luxurious Takumi only has four.

Every Lexus LM comes with the same 2.5-litre hybrid engine and gives you 247bhp to play with. Even so, even the fastest of the LM’s versions, the Takumi, can only manage 0-62mph in 8.7sec. That shouldn’t be an issue, though, the LM is more than quick enough for everyday driving.
