Had a Highlander, drove that and the rx350 and Rx450, the rx 450 beat the others.
It's extremely quiet, powerful, luxurious, outstanding build quality and we think very nice looking.
It takes getting used to a hybrid in day to day driving, as it doesn't jump off the line unless you want it to. It's almost a game seeing how good of mileage you can get.
We are getting at least 28 mph in city driving. We intend to keep this vehicle at least 8 years, and gas is not going to get cheaper so it will pay for us in the long run.
The ride on the 450 is smoother than the 350 due to the extra weight of the batteries.
We have had zero problems or defects in the 7k plus miles we have driven.
The Lexus connect is cool, just hit the button, get a live person, ask about a restaurant, store, whatever, and they send the address directly to your nav.
The connectivity to our iPhones is excellent,
For both music and phone.
Everything is automatic, door unlocking, lights, wipers.
Xenon headlights are excellent
Working all the extra Internet items can be confusing.
The 'mouse' type control takes getting used to
Cup holders in front are very small due to the width of the mouse controller.
The change holder is joke
