Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2017, every RX 450h comes standard with forward collision warning and mitigation, lane keeping assistance, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control. You can also now get a front-wheel-drive F Sport model.

Pros
Impeccably crafted and attractively designed cabin
Excellent fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Supremely quiet
Appealing ride and handling balance with F Sport

Cons
Gas savings unlikely to ever pay back the price premium
Below-average cargo capacity
Optional tech interface is distracting to use
Relatively slow acceleration

The 2017 Lexus RX Hybrid ranks 4 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Lexus RX 450h is a midsize SUV that delivers the luxury you expect from Lexus while also providing solid performance and excellent fuel economy. However, its small cargo area detracts from its utility.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Comfortable, spacious seats

Cons
Frustrating upgraded infotainment system
Small cargo space
