Overview

What's New in the 2015 Lexus RX 450h?

The previously optional 7-inch central display screen with the Remote Touch Interface (RTI) is now standard, and it comes bundled with 12-speaker audio and a rearview camera. The RTI controller has also been revised for better usability. 

Which RX 450h is the Best?

The Lexus RX may not be front-page news, but those who buy them tend to love them. We'd stick with the base RX 350, since it's both well equipped and reasonably priced. Find a Lexus RX for sale

 

How Much Does a 2015 Lexus RX 450h Cost?

The 2015 Lexus RX comes in regular RX 350 or hybrid RX 450h trim.

The RX 350 ($41,895) includes 18-in alloy wheels, LED running lights, a power rear liftgate and keyless entry with push-button ignition. Inside, the RX 350 has fabric upholstery, 10-way power front seats, a power tilt-telescopic steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, a 7-in central display screen with the mouse-like RTI controller and a 12-speaker audio system with a 6-CD changer, satellite radio, an auxiliary input and iPod/USB connectivity.

The RX 450h ($48,545) adds a unique grille and front bumper, as well as hybrid-specific status gauges, but otherwise it mostly shares the RX 350's equipment roster.

Notable options (many of which come bundled in packages) include 19-in alloy wheels, a sunroof, adaptive xenon or LED headlights, two kinds of leather upholstery, driver memory functions, adaptive cruise control, a rear-seat entertainment system with twin 7-in screens, a 15-speaker Mark Levinson audio system and a hard-drive-based navigation system with an 8-in display screen, voice-command functionality and the Lexus Enform Safety Connect telematics suite.

The F Sport package (only offered on RX 350 all-wheel drive) includes many of the above extras and adds an 8-speed automatic transmission, a sport suspension, 19-in wheels with more aggressive tires, a 115-volt outlet and unique styling details inside and out. A Sport Appearance package adds a similarly aggressive look to the regular RX 350 but lacks the F Sport's mechanical upgrades.

The RX's back seat is, unexpectedly, not a particularly strong suit. We figured this 2-row crossover would lavish attention on its rear passengers, but the bottom cushion is mounted surprisingly low to the floor, resulting in a knees-up riding position for those with long legs. Still, there's plenty of room for adults.

Cargo space measures a generous 40 cu ft. behind the rear seatbacks and 80.3 cu ft. with those seatbacks folded down. Note that the RX 450h has the same cargo capacity as the regular RX 350, because its battery pack is concealed beneath the rear seat.

Lexus RX 450h Safety

Is the 2015 Lexus RX 450h a Safe Car?

The 2015 Lexus RX includes stability control, 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, active front headrests and 10 airbags (front, front side, front-knee, rear-side and full-length side-curtain). The available pre-collision warning system features emergency braking preparation and frontal-collision warning. All models have Safety Connect, which provides access to a 24-hour response center to bring you help if the unexpected occurs.

In government crash tests, the front-wheel-drive RX models received four stars out of five overall, while the all-wheel-drive models got 5-star overall ratings, oddly enough. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave both RX models its top rating of Good in all crash tests.

Competition

2015 Lexus RX 450h vs the competition

2015 Acura MDX -- Equipped with 7-passenger seating and more engaging driving dynamics, the appealing MDX is a safe and reliable alternative to the Lexus RX.

2015 Cadillac SRX -- Outfitted with a powerful V6, the SRX is ready to rumble with the Lexus, though it's not as roomy inside.

2015 Volkswagen Touareg -- A dedicated 2-row crossover like the RX, the frequently overlooked Touareg is available with an excellent TDI turbodiesel V6, and it has a nicer interior and a more comfortable back seat than the RX.

Used Porsche Cayenne -- You might think that the Cayenne's out of your price range, but Porsche offers a solid certified pre-owned program, bringing a lot of lightly used Cayenne models into play.
