2013 Lexus RX450h Review

(3 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The name Lexus is synonymous with beauty and luxury. The 2013 Lexus RX450h is no exception to this rule of exceptional beauty and luxurious performance. For people who would like to have the convenience and luxury of a sedan but need the cargo capacity and ruggedness of an SUV, this crossover is an outstanding choice. Having the name alone commands a higher resale value making ownership a good choice on many levels. Adding the hybrid option helps improve the mileage and supports the green initiatives that are in place today although some consumers may not appreciate the increase in price to accommodate the hybrid feature. Available in both front and four-wheel drive gives the consumer added versatility dependent upon his needs.
