Is 2021 your year to make the step to a hybrid? The Lexus RX450h Luxury makes it a comfortable and easy journey, albeit a rather unexciting one.

Pros
The best looking Lexus (aside from LC500) - modern and stylish inside and out
Effortless hybrid drivetrain
Plenty of kit
Quiet and comfortable in every environment

Cons
Thirsty V6 offset by hybrid, but not as much as you'd like
CVT dulls the driving experience
Getting pretty spendy for a car that starts in the $70k range
1990s rear-view camera needs to go
