Lexus RX Road Test

Despite hordes of imitators, the Lexus RX crossover lineup has continued to win the loyalty of its buyers by delivering a driving experience that accentuates comfort, tranquility, and luxury, topped off with good reliability. The RX has long been Lexus' top-seller, and the current model faithfully carries the torch, even with its slightly menacing grill and exterior styling.

The 3.5-liter V6 in the RX 350, coupled with an eight-speed automatic, has the smooth and ample power delivery that you expect in a premium SUV. The hybrid version offers added boost and better fuel economy, as it combines the one-two punch of the gas engine and electric drive.

The RX 450h's hybrid transmission seamlessly puts power to the pavement, allowing this SUV to dash from 0 to 60 mph in a quick 7.5 seconds, while delivering 29 mpg overall-truly impressive in a class for which the V6's 22 mpg is considered a benchmark.

Best Version to Get
We're most impressed by the RX 450h hybrid, thanks to its amazing 29 mpg overall. We'd skip the F Sport simply because it runs counter to the car's mission. The handling improvements are slight and despite all of the F Sport's overt cosmetic "sportiness," this version just isn't much more...
