There are a fair few reasons to like the latest RX. For a start, the interior is attractive and comfortable, helped by the absorbent ride and generous standard equipment. CO2 emissions are pretty low for the class as a whole, so your company car tax bill shouldn’t be too horrific. The RX should prove very reliable, too. However, the Audi Q7 remains our favourite luxury SUV by offering a plusher interior, more passenger space and a better infotainment system.

Trim: F-Sport

As the name suggests, the F Sport aims to bring a touch of excitement to the RX. To make it more agile around corners you get a specific tune to the steering system and suspension, complementing the standard adaptive dampers. You also get different exterior styling with more aggressive-looking bumpers and F Sport-specific 20-inch alloy wheels. There’s also adaptive headlights and sunshades for rear-seat passengers.

Engine: 450h L 3.5

A 3.5-litre petrol V6 paired with two electric motors to give you a combined power output of 308bhp and four-wheel drive. It’s a refined engine with a pleasing sound but it doesn’t have the verve of comparable diesel rivals
