While styling and performance are still at the top of most people’s wish lists when it comes to choosing a new car, fuel efficiency is now a far more important factor when making that final decision as to which car to buy in the UAE. The rising price of gas and the desire to also choose cars that have less of an impact on the planet has led to the advancement of both electric and hybrid cars. Hybrids in particular deliver both range and fuel economy that suits every type of driver.
At Al-Futtaim Lexus, we have embraced the next generation of hybrid cars, recognising them for their efficiency and desirability as well as that flawless Lexus quality. Here is our list of the top three models that offer fuel efficiency as well as a fabulous driver and passenger experience.
Offering both a personalised driving experience and an impressive fuel efficiency level of 21.5km/Ltr, the Lexus NXh is a winner for all-around versatility and driveability. This crossover is a family-friendly car with plenty of room in the cabin for five people, as well as plenty of boot space for luggage. A 2.5Ltr HEV engine lets you choose electric mode around town, cutting your emissions to zero.
Nimble and with plenty of sensors to keep you and others safe, it’s a perfect choice for around-town driving. However, get it out on the open road and the petrol engine takes over, giving you the range to explore further. The perfect balance of performance and efficiency is also enhanced with the option to use the new Lexus Connect App, giving the driver full remote access to the vehicle with just a few taps.
The gorgeous Lexus ES300h proves that hybrid efficiency can go hand-in-hand with exquisite styling. This sublime sedan delivers a very impressive 24.1km/Ltr, making it one of the most frugal and efficient sedans on the road. The 2.5Ltr engine delivers exceptional performance on the open road, while the lithium-ion batteries and electric motor kick in around town to cut your emissions to zero.
This balanced combination of petrol and electric makes it the perfect choice for young professionals who want the aspirational good looks and sleekness of an ES, but who also have a conscience when it comes to our planet’s finite resources. With blistering performance, that iconic pinched spindle grille, and a cabin filled with luxurious touches, the ES 300h is a hybrid sedan that refuses to compromise on performance or quality for the sake of a few extra kilometres per litre.
Badged as the Lexus RX 350h, this superb crossover is guaranteed to reignite your love of movement. Sporty crossover good looks and a sleek, elegant profile make the RX 350h a genuine head-turner. The slightly higher stance and extra ground clearance give it the capability to take on the occasional dusty track, while the sumptuous interior ensures that driver and passengers are wrapped in comfort, no matter how bumpy the road becomes. Around town, it’s nippy, nimble, and powered by an electric motor that cuts emissions to zero. The powerful 2.5Ltr engine kicks in on longer journeys, eliminating any range anxiety and getting you to your destination in sublime comfort. A copious amount of boot space makes the RXh a great weekend adventure car, with more than enough space to pack all of your beach or camping equipment in with ease.
A driver-focused cockpit includes a myriad of technology at your fingertips, putting the driver at one with the RXh. Responsive, versatile, and providing fuel efficiency of 20.7km/Ltr, the RXh is an exceptional choice for young families and urban professionals.
