2013 Lexus RX 450h Economy Test

There is no that Lexus RX line is one of the popular vehicles in the U.S. in segment. It is important to say that vehicle is responsible for about 42 of sales that this brand had in 2011.

And the hybrid RX 450h model finds buyers among progressive, suburban families.

There s one problem: Its real-world gas mileage t appear to match its EPA ratings.

I would love to express my in the fuel economy of my 2012 RX450 Hybrid. I m not getting near what Lexus the vehicle should get.

I m a driver and use premium fuel. dealer blew me off when I this up. Clearly I m not the only one not so

He s not the first person who s mentioned so we decided to check for ourselves.

750 miles: 26.8 mpg


We obtained an 2013 Lexus RX 450h the maker, and embarked on a 750-mile, road test, covering three-quarters highway and rural roads.

We obtained an overall of 26.8 miles per gallon, to the car s trip computer.

That s 10 percent lower than our drive RX 450h s EPA combined of 29 mpg (30 mpg city, 28 mpg highway).

For reference, the drive 2013 RX 450h is at 30 mpg combined (32 mpg city, 28 mpg highway).

Testing an all-wheel drive Lexus RX 450h over miles to Switzerland from the and back, we got 31 mpg in stop-and-go urban but only 25 mpg on the highway.

In that at least, Lexus warned us highway travels were not the RX s forte, and that mileage be better in the city.

Crowd-sourcing MPG

But now there s publicly available to analyze as well. The EPA s FuelEconomy.gov includes a relatively new feature lets owners of specific upload the mileage they get in vehicles.

But for the all-wheel drive Lexus RX 450h (the model is too new to have reported a grand total of three report an average of 29.3

For the 2011 model, a single reported 20.0 mpg, and for the average from five was 29.7 mpg.

You be the judge

For the front-wheel drive RX the 2012 averaged 22.0 mpg single owner), the 2011 was mpg (one owner), and the 2010 came in at 24.2 mpg (three

None of these figures are and of course it s a self-selected sample and very few vehicles indeed. So you can be the of its statistical validity.

We would suggest that the hybrid RX seems at best to equal its EPA but in some cases seems to do worse.

23 mpg in Highlander Hybrid

130 miles of similarly mixed freeway miles than stop-and-go—we achieved just 23 mpg in a Toyota Highlander Hybrid, uses the same basic running gear as the RX 450h.

The Highland Hybrid, which only in all-wheel drive is EPA-rated at 28 mpg combined, so the difference is starker there.

Our test moreover, carried a staggering sticker price, including delivery of $875.

The base RX 450h starts at $47,310, or more than the base of the gasoline RX 350 model.

To that, our Deep Sea Mica metallic example added a $5,635 Package, with leather a one-touch moonroof, folding mirrors, a heated wood-and-leather wheel, 19-inch alloy LED headlamps with washers, and a of appearance niceties like metal sill plates lit by LEDs.

None of these are validated, and of course it s a self-selected and very, very few vehicles So you can be the judge of its statistical validity.

We would cautiously suggest the hybrid Lexus RX seems at to equal its EPA ratings but in some seems to do considerably worse.

23 mpg in Hybrid

During 130 miles of mixed driving—more freeway than urban stop-and-go—we just 23 mpg in a 2012 Toyota Hybrid, which uses the basic hybrid running as the RX 450h.

The Highland Hybrid, comes only in all-wheel form, is EPA-rated at 28 mpg combined, so the is even starker there.

Our car, moreover, carried a $58,060 sticker price, mandatory delivery of $875.

The 2013 RX 450h starts at or $8,000 more than the price of the gasoline RX 350 model.

To our lovely Deep Sea Mica blue example added a Luxury Package, with trim, a one-touch moonroof, heated mirrors, a heated steering wheel, 19-inch wheels, LED headlamps with and a host of appearance niceties brushed metal sill lit by blue LEDs.
