    Lexus RX h Premier review review | Autocar

    The fourth generation Lexus RX is extremely refined with improved usability but is let down by the way it drives. Although the hybrid version remains a compelling option. Previous RXs have proven popular thanks to their myriad classic Lexus virtues, including steadfast reliability, a clean hybrid powertrain, quality and comfort. There have always been gripes, however.

    The RX was never the most practical choice, with a comparatively small boot, nor was it particularly gratifying to drive. Many also found the hybrid version inefficient in the real world, delivering far from its claimed figures. Most of the revisions for the fourth-generation RX focus on the aforementioned issues. This is still a kg SUV, mind, with comparatively narrow section tyres. Power comes from a 3. The RX steps off the line briskly, dispatching the mph sprint in 7.

    Electric and piston power are smartly blended, and the pure EV mode gives the RX a tranquil nature at lower speeds. The ride is supple and relaxed, with minimal suspension noise and jarring over harsher bumps, while wind and road noise — in part thanks to those narrow tyres — is negligible, even at speed.

    Make no mistake; this is a fine car in which to cover distance. The seats are some of the most comfortable offered in recent history, and the cabin feels spacious and airy. Everything is finished to a high standard, lending the RX a suitably upmarket feel. All of the switchgear operates in a slick, precise fashion, adding to the air of quality, as do practical touches like large, adjustable door bins that take A4 documents.

    In flagship Premier specification the RX features adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate, ventilated and heated electric front seats, DAB, a clear and informative HUD and a degree camera system. Not stellar, compared to modern diesel SUVs, but far cleaner.

    It packs a gallon tank, so its range should prove tolerable, either way. It has its flaws but it would likely prove an affable car to own, particularly when taking into account aspects like the excellent Lexus dealer network.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. The X5 currently stands at 3. I'm looking forward to spending some time with the new RX in the UK, though, to really see what the economy's like. For reference, the BMW X5 only got 3. The generation of Q7 just gone only got three stars, too, so the Lexus is doing well in that respect. Worth pointing out that a 3. You are correct in stating that the Premier and F Sport models gets adaptive suspension, but it doesn't make a huge deal of difference - at least not on our test routes.

    As mentioned in the review, however, it is a keener-handling car than before, and its softer nature does it no disservice. A bit too gentle in that mode, resulting in excessive pedal travel. Ultimately, though, it's still less capable in corners and less rewarding to drive than its rivals, which leaves it lagging behind the field from an Autocar point of view.

    As referenced at the end and elsewhere, the reliability, equipment and dealership network are appealing aspects. Its transmission could be better, though, it could do with a bigger boot and the benefits of the hybrid system are debatable. It makes it heavy, for one thing, and the real-world MPG may be disappointingly low. Future tests will aim to find that out. Similarly, improvements to the infotainment system a higher resolution screen, simpler interface would also help push its star rating up.
