The 2021 Lexus RX premium midsize SUV/crossover comes as the V6-powered RX 350 or the hybrid RX 450h. Whenever the letter L comes at the end, that means it’s a longer version with three rows of seating. Seating in an RXL is for seven, or six if there are two captain’s chairs in the second row. These are optional in the RX 350 L, but standard in the RX 450h L. Without the L suffix, the RX seats five people in two rows. The F Sport is a sportier variant of the 2-row model. Standard features are virtually the same across the range, regardless of the drivetrain or number of seats. All-wheel drive is a $1,400 option for the RX 350 models. The destination charge is $1,025. The basic
RX 350 ($45,170) includes 18-in alloy wheels, powered liftgate, automatic LED headlights, automatic high beams, self-dimming/power-folding mirrors,
forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance,
adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, keyless entry/ignition,
dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-way power-adjustable front seats, simulated leather upholstery, power-adjustable leather-wrapped steering wheel, cargo cover, 8-in infotainment touchscreen (also controlled by a center console knob), Bluetooth, two USB ports, 9-speaker audio system with a media player interface, CD player,
Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, HD radio, and an auxiliary audio input. The Premium package adds driver’s-side memory settings and wood trim. The Luxury package includes those items, plus 20-in alloy wheels, upgraded leather upholstery, front-seat lumbar adjustment, heated steering wheel, powered moonroof, and rear door sunshades. The
RX 450h ($47,820) is equipped much like the 350, but with the gasoline/electric hybrid drivetrain and all-wheel drive as standard. The
RX 350 F Sport ($51,050) and
RX 450h F Sport ($53,620) add 20-in alloy wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, enhanced engine sounds, paddle shifters for the transmission, specific exterior styling and interior trim, heated/ventilated front sport seats, leather upholstery, extra color choices, and the contents of the Premium package. The Luxury package is not available, nor does the F Sport treatment apply to the L variants. The
2021 RX 350 L ($48,000) and
RX 450h L ($51,210) have their own all-wheel drive system and third-row seating as standard, but are otherwise equipped like their standard-length counterparts. A Navigation package is available on every version, bringing a 12.3-in central display, navigation, 12-speaker sound system, and the Remote Touch interface (a joystick-like center console controller). More option choices depend on region, specifically in regard to certain extras that can be available as either individual items and/or within packages. These include hands-free lift gate operation, a choice of sunroofs (regular or panoramic), parking sensors, upgraded headlights, power-folding second-row seat, heated/ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, wireless charging, head-up display, and a 15-speaker Mark Levinson sound system.
Is the 2021 Lexus RX 450h a Safe Car?
The RX comes standard with an impressive amount of safety features beyond the mandatory stability control and airbags. Forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance and emergency communications are all standard. In crash tests carried out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the RX earned the best-possible 5-star rating for overall crash protection, including 4-star frontal and 5-star side crash ratings. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) also gave it the best possible ratings for crash protection and prevention, as well as for its child seat LATCH anchors.
