Interior and tech

Lexus has always done interesting interiors that differ from their more obviously German rivals. There’s the whiff or 1980’s Aiwa about the styling, but you cannot fault the build quality, and the equipment count is high even on the entry-level S version. With it you get Bluetooth telephone connection, dual-zone climate control, two USB ports and DAB.

The seats offer good comfort, but the rears are a touch high thanks to the positioning of the hybrid’s battery. It also means there’s not a flat floor with the seatbacks folded. Premier models are worth having for the Mark Levinson stereo alone though, as the sound quality is among the best out there.
