Lexus reveals GS hybrid pricing
22 May 2006

The new Lexus GS450h petrol electric hybrid is now on sale in the UK, with prices starting from £38,015.

The 450h - which has already found fame as the car of Conservative leader David Cameron - uses a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine mated to an electric motor to provide V8-like performance but with low C02 emissions (186g/km) and 35.8mpg economy.

The top-of-the-line 450h SE-L version, which comes with loaded with kit including a 14-speaker hi-fi and touchscreen sat-nav, costs £46,765 - undercutting the V8-powered 430 by nearly £400.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
