  1. Lexus RX

Lexus has introduced the RX 450hL SUV in India at a price of Rs 99 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). 

The ‘h’ in the name stands for hybrid powertrain. In this SUV, power is harnessed from the combination of a 3.5-litre V6 engine with VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence) tech and a 650V AC permanent magnet synchronous motor. The petrol engine pumps out 262PS of power and 335Nm of torque, while the electric motor generates 68PS and 139Nm. The total power output is capped at 313PS/361Nm. Transmission duties are handled by an e-CVT (Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission) unit, which is mated to a four-wheel drive system.

As it is being shipped directly as a CBU, the specs are exactly the same as seen in the Japanese version. It competes against the likes of the Audi Q7, Volvo XC90, BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE.
