2013 Lexus RX 450h Overview

Automotive Editor - December 20, 2012

For the 2013 model year, the RX 450h, which joined Lexus’ lineup in the 2010 model year, features a slew of changes on the inside and outside. Outside, the RX 450h receives Lexus’ now-signature spindle grille flanked by new headlights, a revised bumper, LED daytime running lamps, revised taillights, and much more pronounced fog lights and bezels.

Inside the cabin, Lexus added in a more comfortable steering wheel, metallic accents to the glove box, and a revised center console for easier use. The aesthetic revisions essentially eliminate the soft look that the 2012 RX 450h had, and replaced it with a more athletic and non-hybrid look and feel. A final addition to the 2013 RX 450h is a “Sport” mode, which increases the performance and handling of this hybrid SUV. In its base format, the RX 450h gets 32 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, and in it all-wheel-drive setup, it gets 30 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

While hybrid luxury SUVs are not necessarily abundant, there is some competition out there. First up is the 2013 Audi Q5 2.0T Prestige Quattro Hybrid, which comes in a $50,900 and boasts a 30 mpg highway rating, five-person leather seating, 245-horsepower, 6.8-second sprint to 60 mph and a 4,400-pound towing capacity. Next up is the 2013 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid, which comes in at $62,055, boasts leather seating for five, a 380-horsepower hybrid-drive system, a 24 mpg highway rating and a 7,700-pound towing capacity. The next competitor is the 2013 Toyota Highlander Limited Hybrid, which carries a $46,170 price tag, seven-person premium leather seating, a 280-horsepower, V-6 hybrid driveline, a 3,500-pound towing capacity and a 28 mpg highway rating.

Since the competition is so scarce, the range of luxury hybrid SUVs range greatly in size and engine power. Despite their obvious differences, they all remain in fierce competition for the interest of eco-friendly SUV buyers.
