Lexus RX - A born fighter

Andrew Hopkins

While Lexus presents the new generation of the noble RX SUV, the mainly German competitors are going for a bit more understatement with their SUVs by building them just one size smaller in the form of compact SUVs.

The future Q7, X5 and M-Class competitors will of course be lined up against the Lexus hybrid. As both a raison d'être and apology in a vehicle category that takes a lot of stick from the eco-brigade, you could say that the RX will come straight in playing the strange dual role of a heavyweight preacher.
