The 2018 Lexus RX 450h fares well in the compact luxury SUV segment. Adding $1,025 to the price of the standard gasoline RX 350’s AWD variant, the Lexus RX 450h hybrid carries a base price of MSRP of $45,895 and is offered in 3 trims. The engine on service here is a familiar 3.5L V6 supported by a 288-volt electric system. Mated to a CVT, it makes 308 horsepower. The combined fuel economy improves from 22 MPG on the standard gasoline variant to 30 MPG on the hybrid variant, making the increase in sticker price worth it. Performance of the Lexus RX 450h hybrid also improves here, with the car accelerating from 0 to 60 MPH in 7.2 seconds. Lexus offers the same 11 colors for the Lexus RX 450h hybrid. The RX 450h indirectly competes against the Plug-in Hybrid such as Volvo XC60 Recharge PHEV and the BMW X5 PHEV with some significant price difference.
