innovative, luxury crossover ever built.
Featuring a bold new Lexus 'face' with class-leading aerodynamics, the new
RX 450h is powered by a second-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive that
intelligently combines a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with two high-output
Equipped with advanced technologies like Remote Touch -- and now available

2012 Lexus RX 450h Hybrid Test Drive & Luxury Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/rx-450h/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Lexus 450h
is a crossover luxury SUV that is not only great to drive, but it also has
excellent fuel economy ratings. The RX series has been a wonderful
selling line of luxury crossovers since 1998 and the Hybrid model sits at
or near the top of the list of most fuel efficient SUVs year after year.
And the Lexus RX 450h is an AutoPacific 2012 Vehicle Satisfaction Award
winner. The RX 450h comes in 2 different trim levels. The first is the FWD
model which has a base price of $45,235. The second is the AWD model which
has a base price of $46,825.
The RX hybrid is powered by an Atkinson cycle 3.5 liter V-6 engine that
produces 245 horsepower and 244 lb-ft. of
torque. The hybrid powertrain features two electric motors that give an
extra Boost to the V-6 engine adding
50 HP. Fuel economy ratings are 32 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the
highway. Not only is the RX hybrid very fuel efficient, but it is also a
Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle. The 2012 Lexus RX 450h sports two
systems that help in both efficiency and emissions. The Exhaust Heat Recovery system that helps with the
warm up of the vehicle and Exhaust Gas
Recirculation which is water cooled and reduces pumping losses.
It is not just the Lexus Hybrid Drive that is responsible for the great MPG
ratings. The RX hybrid features a start-stop system to increase fuel
economy. The luxury hybrid can also run on battery power alone. The ECO
mode monitor shows the driver how to drive in a more efficient manner. The
RX hybrid sports the first Electronically controlled Continuously Variable
Transmission which is meant to keep the luxury SUV in the right gear at all
time thus maximizing efficiency. The steering unit runs off electricity
instead on a belt driven by the engine. The result is less strain on the
engine resulting in better MPG. The 2012 Lexus RX 450h uses a regenerative
braking system to power the batteries.
On the outside the 3rd generation RX features a bold and exciting new
design with a new bumper, headlight assembly, and new grille. Dimensions
have been increased a bit and cargo room is up 5%. The real news is that
the drag coefficient has been reduced to 0.33 thanks in large part to the
rear wing which reduces air turbulence. On the inside the 2012 Lexus RX
hybrid is all luxury and technology. The 8-inch navigation is voice
activated and a heads-up display projects directions onto the windshield.
Supply leather abounds and the front seats are heated and ventilated units
that are power adjustable.
The 2012 Lexus RX 450h is a wonderful 5-passenger luxury crossover SUV that
gets incredible gas mileage. Both green and efficient, the RX hybrid is a
