To accurately answer this, we should ask whether and competition brings something new with each subsequent generation of SUV models? Again diesel engines, with a degree in the gearbox more and promise of better performance and reduced consumption. Similarly, the Lexus, only here it is refreshed hybrid and gear already has infinitely many gears.However, Lexus is different only in that it has a hybrid plant. The new RX is dramatically different from the outside than its predecessor – much more than the new Q7-ka of Audi for example. Nevertheless, it manages to be distinctive. In fact, through our streets filled with SUV-and German Trinity bystanders have no problem to recognize a Lexus. As for the owners of such vehicles certainly it is certainly very important.The main question is whether the Lexus RX450h regards driving as it seems? And whether buyers want Lexus to drive as it looks? Because, as far as the styling, he could freely borrow and if Lamborghini already planning to make the SUV. And it would certainly be a sports SUV, with the main orientation towards high performance. Here’s the answer: no, this Lexus rides not as it seems. But it is not only not a disadvantage, but one of the greatest compliment that can be given to this car. Why? Read below …

Lexus RX450h is equipped with a hybrid drive consisting of a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 262 hp, front electric motor with a power of 167 hp and a rear electric motor with a power of 68 hp. The result, as always in hybrid plants of Toyota and Lexus is not simply a collection of numbers, because the hybrid system of Japanese work as a single drive.The joint force that developed this plant is 313 hp, this paper works impressively. The performances are solid – the plant is powerful enough to easily escape from other vehicles at traffic lights and the car has power and the open road. Traditionalists will immediately notice that the RX has no acceleration “in gear” as competitors, but the reason for this is that the gearbox and no degrees or a CVT.This means that the acceleration is linear and uninterrupted, or that the car will not stick to the seat as you’d taped a car with ordinary transmission. However, high speeds are achieved fairly quickly, although passengers will not notice it. The figures show acceleration to hundred kilometers takes 7.7 seconds, while top speed is 200 km / h, which is probably enough for one large and heavy SUV car.Lexus always represented the premium manufacturer of equipment spares – while other producers can charge you another car if you want all the options, RX has several excellently equipped packages. The test we had equipped cruise package President, which, as it says in its name, literally includes everything you can imagine in a luxury premium car designed for those who primarily want a luxury (F Sport Premium model has the same price, but prefer slightly more towards sports-minded drivers).To enumerate equipment Lexus RX will take too many lines of this text, so I’ll mention a few details. Because we tested the car in very hot weather, the great help came ventilation seats, which does not allow to sweat your butt even though the seats are fully clothed in leather. Then, the sound systems Mark & Levinson is one of the best we’ve heard that any car ever, and equipment safety is at the highest level – the car itself can keep a track alone to follow the vehicle ahead and completely stop if necessary and there is automatic beam.If you really need a third row of seats and want comfortable, convenient and extremely luxurious passenger SUV with a Lexus RX will know. Japanese model has a lower price than that of diesel competition, which should not be overlooked, especially in general and not acting cheaper. On the contrary, the Germans (BMW and Mercedes-Benz primarily) could learn a trick from the book of Japanese interiors for the next generation of its large SUV models.
