In the UK the new-generation RX will be an all-hybrid range, with the RX450h replacing both the current RX400h hybrid and RX350 petrol engine models. Lexus was the first and remains the only manufacturer to offer hybrid models in the segment in Europe, now presenting its second generation model before its rivals manage to bring their first hybrid contenders to the showroom.
The current RX400h already addresses the prime concerns of today's motorists, applying advanced technology to deliver high performance and whisper quiet refinement, combined with excellent fuel and emissions efficiency.
Priced from £36,273 and available from Lexus Centres across the UK, the RX400h gives great fuel consumption (34.9mpg combined cycle) and carbon dioxide emissions (192g/km) that earn a low tax rating. It all adds up to make the RX400h as cost efficient to own and run as a smaller family car.
Further details about the new Lexus RX450h will be announced early next year.
