The new Lexus RX 450h is one of the most anticipated mid-size luxury SUVs on the market. The all-wheel-drive RX 450H comes standard with a 3.5-litre, V6 engine that provides a combined 308 total system horsepower and instant torque delivery. The automatic transmission with Intelligent Shift Control allows for optimal engine response and both hybrid models boast Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) certification. This performance-orientated SUV is set to change the face of the Canadian SUV market forever.
Comes with A Smooth and Quiet Operation
Lexus RH 450H performs much better than its main rivals such as Acura MDX, Infinity QX60, and Cadillac XT5. The 3.5L V-6 engines deliver smooth performance even on the highway and rough terrains. The SUV now moves with a seamless command that makes it superior to its rivals.
This is a hybrid vehicle, which means it comes with multiple engine power systems, and you can also find it in a wide range of options. With the new engine, you can accelerate at 60 Mph in just 7.2 seconds- this may be quite slow for some SUV options but it is sure faster than the older RX350. The 3.5L, V-6 engine delivers a whopping 308 Horsepower and 6000 rpm.
Excellent Overall Refinement
With an excellent refinement to its operations, you can expect up to 30 mpg fuel economy combined for city and highway driving. The steering response is very smooth, and you can alter it by simply switching from the driving mode to the “F Sport” mode.
In high speed, you should expect an average body roll but in windy conditions, you will feel the extra weight of the hybrid option, slightly. With 7.2 seconds of 60 MPH acceleration, one may think that is slightly slower than some competitors, but in actual sense, the slower acceleration does not have any negative impact on the overall drive quality, perhaps it is still faster than several SUV competitors in this regard.
Amazing Interior Configuration
The cabin materials used in the making of the SUV are premium. The third-row seat can now be easily accessed and folded to create more space within. The removal of touch-sensitive buttons even makes the infotainment centre more lively and easier to control.
There is the inclusion of the Lexus Enform feature that allows seamless connectivity to your smartphone for hands-free usage. The premium seat fabric makes the interior even more attractive, and the heated front seat also improves comfort for passengers. It is possible to add several options to your new SUV at subsidized extra costs. The exterior of the SUV is as amazing as its interior, especially with the well-cut-out and neatly arrange.
Safety Conscious SUV
Lexus has done a number of researches to boost the prestige of its range of SUVs, and the safety area has been one of the main areas of focus. The new RH 450h comes with an automatic emergency braking feature that works with the pedestrian detection system. It also features a lane-keeping assist feature plus adaptive cruise control. The safety features of the new RH 450h will make the crossover SUV compete favourably with its main rivals.
Just like any other premium SUV, there are very few drawbacks on the Lexus RX 450h. The slow acceleration is one of such, but this is cancelled out by its smooth and quiet operation under any driving condition. The cargo space may not be as large as you want but it still provides a moderate capacity for everyday family usage. This tech-savvy SUV comes with an optional tech interface that some people may find confusing, but will eventually get used to. If you consider the great fuel mileage of this SUV alongside its engine performance and a handful of security features, you can easily conclude that it is worth the investment.
