What is it? It’s easy to understand why car manufacturers are combining hybrid technology and SUVs. The interest in both, after all, is at a fever pitch – so it makes sense to amalgamate the two.

In a world of Mercedes GLEs, BMW X5s and Audi Q7s, taking a healthy slice of that cake is a difficult task for anyone else at the party — and arguably that’s been the case with the latest Lexus RX.
What is it? Take a look at a car manufacturer’s line-up, and it’s clear that, nowadays, there’s never a niche too far. Whereas in previous years it may have been a hatchback, an estate and an off-roader, there are now compact crossovers and coupe-styled SUVs like this – Audi’s SQ8.
