The Top Gear car review:Lexus RX

5/10
Overall verdict
If you're an undemanding driver, meet the least intimidating SUV. It's simple to drive and rather dull.
 

For: 

Economical, refined

Against: 

Pitiful battery range

Overview

What is it?

The original hybrid SUV remains strikingly economical and, thanks to a new nose, is more striking to look at, too. But, wonderful as the cabin is and amazing the refinement all round, it’s a shame Lexus has forgot the ‘sports’ bit in Sports Utility Vehicle.
