The 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.

We reckon Premium Pack is the pick of the range, but we wouldn't deter you from stepping up to F-Sport as it comes with some useful additional features such as adaptive LED headlights, ventilated front seats, heads-up display and 20in wheels.

The plug-in hybrid version of the Lexus NX can officially do up to 45 miles on pure battery power, before its 2.5-litre petrol engine takes over until you plug the car in again. Acceleration is surprisingly nippy, with 0-62mph taking 6.3 seconds.
