Starting at | Starting at 18 MPG City - 25 MPG Highway
The Lexus RX is categorized as a mid-sized luxury SUV, and it still carries enough amenities and horsepower to lead the segment a full 14 years after its 1998 introduction. The RX 450h features a hybrid drivetrain that can run on batteries alone for short distances to save fuel, which equates to 28 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. The RX 350 does all right on its own, achieving 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. With this mid-cycle refresh, Lexus has done more than enough to keep its popular SUV more than relevant in the luxury sport utility conversation.
For 2013, Lexus has given the RX lineup a facelift, aligning it with the rest of the carmaker's model range. Changes include new headlights with LED running lights, a deep front fascia and a more aggressive shape to the grille. Subtle changes can be found inside as well, with improved form and function. A Sport Appearance Package joins the options list.
The 350 and 450h both carry a 3.5L V6 under the hood. The 350 is rated at 275 horsepower, while the 450h can do a combined 295 horsepower, thanks to the assistance of the hybrid powertrain's electric motor. The 350 uses a conventional 6-speed transmission, but the 450h comes with a continuously variable transmission.
