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

As you might expect from looking at them side by side in a parking lot, the Audi Q5 and the Audi SQ5 are two versions of the same small luxury crossover SUV. The SQ5 offers more power and some extra performance along with a few added luxury touches to help it feel a bit more premium.

Pros
Impressively comfortable ride for a sport-tuned SUV
Generous space for passengers
Luxurious but restrained interior design
Nimble handling

Cons
Lack of touchscreen functionality limits smartphone integration usefulness

By:

Thankfully, the Audi SQ5 is a lot more comfortable than most of them. Its standard adaptive suspension will let you choose between sporty or more comfortable settings, but the optional adaptive air suspension irons out bumps better than any other sporty SUV. It’ll also lower the car’s ride height at speed to make it more stable and you can raise it by 45mm if you fancy a spot of light off-roading.

Pros
Very fast
Great build quality
Spacious interior

Cons
Expensive options
Diesel engine only
Pricey compared to alternatives

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The SQ5 displays great balance between driving dynamics and comfort, proving its worth in a competitive class.

Pros
Numerous standard interior features,
well-balanced ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient.

Cons
Passenger volume and cargo space is lacking,
bland exterior design,
falls short to its rivals in terms of performance.
