Lexus LBX makes winning debut in the EcoCar Electrified Top 50

2 July 2024

The all-new Lexus LBX has made a winning debut in the EcoCar Electrified Top 50, taking the title of “best hybrid compact SUV) and second place – by a single point – in the overall rankings.

Iain Robertson, EcoCar Editor and Publisher, said: “Lexus has never sold a model as small the LBX before and we’re already huge fans of this classy hybrid. Its interior feels as well-made, upmarket and well-equipped as you would expect from Lexus and, if the company’s past hybrid powertrains are anything to go by, it should be supremely reliable.

“The LBX’s compact size, automatic gearbox and 62.7mpg fuel efficiency make it the ideal urban companion and there’s even the option of all-wheel drive for customers who live in more remote locations.”

This latest honour reinforces the LBX’s status as a game-changing model for Lexus, establishing the brand in a new market segment. Although compact in size, it makes no compromise in Lexus luxury craftsmanship quality, refinement, reliability and driving pleasure.
