Now in its fourth generation, the handsome Lexus RX 450h offers plenty of room for five adults to travel very comfortably. This mid-size luxury SUV comes with plenty of useful features too and is available in SE, Luxury, F Sport and Premier trim lines.
The RX 450h certainly cuts a dash, boasting eye-catching fixtures such as an expansive spindle-style front grille and sleek, diamond-shaped headlights. The vehicle rides on 18-inch alloy wheels too. Other notable features include rear privacy glass, rain-sensing wipers and electrically adjustable, foldable and heated door mirrors. The latter are fitted with indicator and puddle lights. Further illumination includes a range of LEDs: automatic high-beam headlights, daytime running lights, front and rear fog lamps and rear combination lights.
The RX 450h allows front-row travellers to quickly get comfortable thanks to heated leather seats that offer eight-way electric adjustability and two-way electric lumbar support. The driver also benefits from a powered tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, which comes with multifunction controls. Engine ignition is initiated by a simple press of a button. Other standard features include an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear electric windows, electronic two-zone climate control and LED cabin illumination. The vehicle also possesses an ample 539-litre luggage compartment.
A 3.5-litre V6 engine is installed beneath the RX 450h’s bonnet, and is paired with continuously variable transmission. This petrol-electric unit produces 263bhp, 335Nm of torque and 0-60mph in less than eight seconds. It also returns as much as 54.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 120g/km.
Included is a nine-speaker sound system, featuring DAB radio, a CD player and an AM/FM radio). Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity and three 12-volt power outlets are included too. Also featured are Lexus Navigation and an eight-inch multimedia display which, among other things, delivers output from the car’s reversing camera.
The vehicle has been awarded a five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP. It comes with a number of passive safety features, such as ten airbags, ISOFIX child-seat fixtures and seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters.
