2013 Lexus RX 450h Hybrid First Drive Review
The 2013 Lexus RX 450h Hybrid is the latest in a line of eco-conscious mid-size luxury suvs produced by the premium brand. The RX 450h Hybrid's status as a continuation of the very first gasoline / electric crossover to have been introduced to North American buyers almost ensures that its sales will continue to buttress the impressive totals of the standard edition of the RX. It also doesn't hurt that the luxury hybrid provides one of the better battery-powered driving experiences in the business.
Our time behind the wheel of the 2013 Lexus RX 450h Hybrid was brief, but it was enough to confirm that the latest model picks up where the previous RX left off. A substantial percentage of Lexus sales are of the hybrid variety, which means that driving dynamics, performance, and comfort are much more than afterthoughts each time the Japanese brand releases a revised product.
