It is only a pity that the trunk space is so small. Its hybrid powertrain delivers snoozeworthy acceleration, and the regenerative brakes detract from the driving experience. It rides with a luxuriant pliancy. Onboard navigation calls for the optional Navigation Package, which requires as a prerequisite the Premium Package or Luxury Package — the features of which are unrelated. I thought you were here to talk about the Lexus… Sorry, just scene-setting. There are also plenty of standard active safety features, including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, lane trace assist, traffic sign recognition, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. It's a shame because otherwise this new entry-level crossover has a lot going for it.
However, contact with the road is so good that we never get the feeling that the car cannot cope with the performance of the engine. But do have a look at a Toyota Prius. The front seats provide good comfort and support. Rivals offer substantially more luggage capacity when you fold the rear seats down, but at least the boot floor is flush with the lip. The eco-friendly materials used in the cabin lack the quality of other luxury vehicles, and the infotainment system is tough to use. Available features include an upgraded infotainment system with a 10.
It includes autonomous emergency braking which operates at up to 50mph, alongside lane departure, traffic sign recognition, adpative cruise control and headlight assistance systems. Does that make him more attractive? The dashboard is showing its age and the infotainment system feels woefully outdated, but the interior feels good, especially up front In the back, rear-seat space is compromised by the battery pack under the floor, while boot space is merely adequate for this size of car. Vegetarians and vegans are often more interested in green cars than are average shoppers, and they sometimes prefer to minimize animal-based materials in their cars. What features does it come with? It deserves a look from anyone shopping for a small luxury crossover, but you'll probably want to look at a few rivals as well. You really have to mash the throttle to get going, which takes some getting used to.
You'll also probably want to look for some common convenience features to supplement the somewhat sparsely outfitted standard features list. The optional remote touch controller — similar to a computer mouse — is used to make selections on the display screen. However, an overcomplicated design and cluttered centre console let it down. As with all Lexus models, the five-door carries a standard three-year warranty, while the hybrid system is covered by a five-year guarantee. For comparison, the and earn 24 and 27 mpg combined, respectively. Front-wheel drive, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and a 1. However, the Distant Touch control for that recommended Display Audio and Menu techniques is one particular of the more puzzling interfaces available.
Front seat heaters and a power-adjustable passenger seat are optional. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the carefully. Rivals include the Toyota Prius and Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. What does it cost to own? It has an upscale cabin and user-friendly tech features. Optional Lexus Enform Safety Connect adds automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle location, emergency assist button and Enhanced Roadside Assistance a complimentary one-year trial subscription is included. I was more accepting of it than some initially, but changes over time have also made it less to my liking.
The undercarriage feels sturdy but makes a restless impression. That starts at £23,495, or £299 a month. The tether anchors are easy to find, though you may initially confuse them for other hardware. For comparison, the compact sedan equipped with an efficient diesel engine hits 60 in 7. Unfortunately, the benefits pretty much end there. On the other hand, it has anemic performance and ho-hum interior accommodations. That one seems to be well-hated.
Available features include a head-up display, front and rear parking sensors, and front and rear cross traffic alert. We also offer all manufacturer finance and lease options. Unlike its plug-in hybrid rivals, there are no charging cables and little chance of completing a commute on electric power. The seats are comfortable, and there are plenty of standard driver assistance features. So it cannot be meant. Our car reviews are objective.
Straight-line performance is less than sparkling, though, with an official 10. It also makes the car feel less responsive than its rivals when overtaking or powering up a steep hill. As an aside, its build quality is nothing short of amazing, with minimalist panel gaps, a tight interior and lashings of paint on every surface. On the inside, more colors can now be chosen than before and a larger multimedia screen is available: 10. Power is sourced from a 1. The system provides forward collision warning and both low- and high-speed automatic emergency braking. Now, dieselgate launched a coup on dervs from within the party, and all of a sudden.
In the back, it is no different. You might be stuck with it. In its favour is an incredibly quiet and refined ride at town speeds and plenty of composure on the motorway. The world lived in a diesel dictatorship. Second, owning one requires a certain living situation and additional equipment 240-volt charging to support it along with the associated costs. However, little can be noticed on the Verkeersbord recognition and the warning in case we get too close to the roadway marking.
