The RX scores well for its strong refinement, plush interior and punchy performance. Reliability will be a strong point, too, and the option of a regular hybrid is great for those without easy access to a charger. While the electric range on the plug-in hybrid version isn’t as impressive as some rivals, they also cost more.

This is the plushest trim level, with adaptive suspension, park assist, a 21-speaker Mark Levinson audio system upgrade, a digital rear-view mirror, and electric adjustment for the front passenger seat and rear seats.

This is the plug-in hybrid option, and uses the same 2.5-litre petrol engine as the 350h but produces a more powerful combined output of 304bhp. The 0-62mph time is 6.5sec.
