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

The range-topping Takumi doesn’t get our recommendation. Yes, it comes with loads of luxuries, including some more upmarket interior finishes and a digital rear-view mirror – but it pushes the price too close to that of altogether larger plug-in hybrid SUVs, including the seven-seat Volvo XC90.

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.
