The Lexus RX has been on the market since the late 1990s and quickly established itself as one of the most popular luxury sport compact SUVs on the market.
It operates in a very competitive segment, but the RX has always managed to stand out against its competition by offering a host of features, a comfortable ride and interesting performance.
Available in two versions, the Lexus RX is available with a hybrid engine in the RX 450h model. Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to an electric motor, the RX 450h is a true luxury SUV capable of combining fuel economy and performance as few vehicles in this class are capable. The engine is combined with an automatic continuously variable transmission and provides three driving modes that modify how the electric motor contributes to overall performance. The RX 450h displays the fuel economy of a sedan with an average fuel consumption of 8.0 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
No matter which version of the RX one choses, they will get a very silent SUV that drives like a charm. The RX focuses primarily on comfort as the driver and his or her passengers barely feel the bumps and holes in the road. Moreover, in a tight curve, it displays stable and sophisticated road manners that still allows for some fun behind the wheel. The seats offer supreme comfort while the interior is superior in terms of quality and finish to many vehicles in the same class.
The dashboard will impress your passengers while being ergonomic and easy to use on a daily basis. One will particularly appreciate the quality and feel of the materials that is quite above average.
Under the hood of the Lexus RX 350, we find a 3.5-liter V6 engine developing 270 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. The engine sends its power to all four wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. On the road, the RX 350’s engine offers performance that allow the owner to accelerate or pass with conviction and confidence. In addition, the RX still remains fuel-efficient for a vehicle in this class with an average fuel consumption on the highway of 9.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
