2014 Lexus RX450h 600x393 at 2014 Lexus RX450h UK Pricing Announced

The hybrid version of Lexus’ luxury SUV, the RX450h, is now available in the British market from £48,495. The car is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and a powerful electric motor, developing a combined 295bhp, which translates into a 0 to 60 mph time of around 8 seconds. Not bad going for large, hybrid SUV.

2014 Lexus RX450 benefits from a clever all-wheel-drive system which features a second electric motor on the rear axle that engages when conditions require extra grip. So it should be able to get out of its own way off-road.

But you don’t buy a hybrid family car for performance. You buy it for economy. Lexus RX450 does not disappoint in that area either. Official combined cycle figures for this car are 44.8mpg and 145g/km.

As for the features and equipment, in addition to the I-AFS auto-adaptive system, 19-inch alloy wheels and the choice of either a fixed panoramic roof or an electric sunroof, the standard kit includes Smart Entry and Start; dual-zone climate control; leather upholstery; heated, eight-way adjustable front seats; heated, auto-diming and folding door mirrors, automatic windscreen wipers; and rear privacy glass.

If you spend £445 on top of the car’s £48,495 asking price, you will get the Protection Pack adding a boot liner, bumper protection plate, cargo net and rubber floor mats. This makes the car more off-road ready. Entertainment is provided by Lexus Premium Navigation system, 12-speaker audio pack, DVD player (single disc) and DAB tuner.
