Offering provocative styling, smooth ride quality, and a luxurious, quiet interior, the Lexus RX is, by far, the brand’s best-selling crossover suv. In fact, it represents more than a third of all Lexus sales, last year outpacing the combined total sales of all six Lexus passenger cars.
There are several variants of the RX: the gas-powered RX 350, the RX 450h gas-electric hybrid, the three-row RX 350L, and the three-row RX 450hL hybrid. To make room for the third-row, the RX 350L and RX 450hL are stretched 4.4 inches behind the rear wheels.
The 450hL's hybrid powertrain brings another great reason to slip behind the wheel of the stylish mid-size Lexus suv—great fuel economy. EPA estimates are 29 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg combined. While those numbers won’t wow a Prius owner at your next social gathering, near-30 mpg fuel economy in something as big, luxurious, and spacious as the RX that can handle up to seven passengers is quite notable.
