The NX 450h attracts our full five-star rating on account of its plush interior, impressive refinement, good electric range, low CO2 emissions and low company car tax rate. If you can't easily plug in your car, the NX 350h is a good compromise. It's not as frugal or hushed as the 450h, but it’s competitively priced, more efficient than non-hybrid rivals and should benefit from Lexus’s legendary reliability.

We think most buyers will be served best by Premium Pack NX as it gets plenty of standard equipment, including 18in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and artificial leather seats. Pair this with the optional Lexus Link Pro infotainment system and you’ll have all the equipment you could want and more.

This ‘self-charging hybrid’ version of the NX comes with a 2.5-litre petrol engine and electric motor to produce 241bhp. This is enough to take the NX from 0-62mph in 7.7sec and on to a top speed of 124mph. You can have this with two or four-wheel drive.
