Lexus has made a number of welcomed improvements to a machine that needed few. The RX Hybrid should prove favorable to new hybrid shoppers, or existing owners looking to upgrade.

The Lexus RX Hybrid is a supremely comfortable place in which to wait out the inevitable spots of congestion, the knowledge that the engine is switched off, silent, and contributing precisely zero CO2 to the world around you a small salve on the conscience.

The 2010 Lexus RX 450h is a better vehicle than the RX 400h. It’s a bit more fuel-efficient, a touch smoother and more refined. It feels more like a normal luxury crossover SUV.

The 2010 Lexus RX is a class act, now with personality. The latest version of Lexus’ crossover SUV resembles its forebears but is quite different and more desirable.

If it’s a more reasonably sized luxury crossover that you’re after and you don’t mind spending to get fuel economy, then the Lexus Hybrid RX has it all. This is an impressively engineered vehicle, especially for those who have already discovered its gasoline-powered sibling.

I enjoyed driving the RX 450h. The ride is comfortable, predictable, and refined. Interior wood and leather are first class, as is the build quality. This is a Lexus all the way.

Let’s face it, in either gas-only or hybrid guise the RX is a lot of car, or SUV, or crossover, even for the price. It’s a fine family vehicle for long trips. It looks good, it’s solidly built with a fine reliability record, it drives surprisingly well for a vehicle its size.
