The RX 450h hybrid has a lower output V-6 with battery assistance and motors that power the rear wheels for standard all-wheel drive. The RX is more intriguing on a curvy road than before, but still can’t quite hang with more sprightly competition.

Pros
Bold, brash design
Good acceleration
Safety record
Comfortable ride
Hybrid’s thrift

Cons
Polarizing design
Price escalates
Head-scratching F-Sport
Laughable third row option
