The Lexus RX450h hybrid is now available in a new Advance grade.

The new model builds on the existing Luxury grade, but adds a new deep front bumper and adaptive LED headlights.

Also added are new seven-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels plus the choice of either fixed panoramic or electric glass roof.

The existing array of standard equipment continues, including keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, heated electric leather seats, automatic wipers, 12-speaker audio system, rear view camera and satellite navigation.

Power comes from the usual 3.5-litre V6 mated to an electric motor to deliver a total of 295bhp, enough for a 0-62mph time of less than 8 seconds.

Four wheel-drive functionality is added by a second electric motor in the rear axle which can activate automatically when conditions require.

The official combined cycle fuel economy figure is 44.8mpg, with CO2 emissions of 145 g/km.

The Lexus RX450h Advance is available now, priced from £48,495.
