The Car Guide rating 77%(view ratings)
The biggest change to the Lexus RX lineup for 2024 is the addition of a plug-in hybrid variant that combines a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with a pair of electric motors for a total of 304 horsepower. Zero-emission range reaches 60 km. Alternatively, customers can choose from a trio of four-cylinder powertrains. The top-line RX 500h delivers as much as 367 horsepower. While not particularly dynamic, Lexus’ midsize SUV proves remarkably quiet and dependable.
