Lexus RX 450hL vs. Acura MDX

The MDX Hybrid is bigger on the inside and more powerful than the RX. Its third-row seat is a little roomier, too. For a sporty choice, it's the way to go. The RX, however, provides a softer and quieter ride. It also has a more luxurious-looking interior. Both vehicles have mediocre infotainment systems.

Lexus RX 450hL vs. Volvo XC90

The XC90 has better interior ergonomics and one of the sleekest designs, both interior and exterior, on the market today. The Lexus comes up short on performance and passenger comfort compared to the XC90. Advantages to the RX 450hL include a lower price point, proven reliability and a smoother ride.

Lexus RX 450hL vs. Audi Q7

Although not available as a hybrid, the Audi Q7 is a great premium three-row SUV. It features similar build quality, exterior dimensions and interior features. The Q7 also handles and performs better and has an easier-to-use third-row seat. The Lexus has a softer and smoother ride and is more affordable, too.

The 2018 Lexus RX 450hL manages to combine luxury and efficiency in an eminently practical SUV, creating a true luxury crossover hybrid. Being a Lexus, the midsize RX 450hL has plenty of luxurious trappings. Materials quality and workmanship are as top-notch as you'd expect from Lexus. There's also plenty of technology, including new safety items such as forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, auto high beams and adaptive cruise control.

Then there's the additional utility you expect with a crossover. The RX 450hL features third-row seats, and the RX's traditional sloping rear roofline was flattened in the 450hL to accommodate the heads of third-row passengers. As a result, the RX 450hL has increased ability to carry especially large or bulky objects. And with the rear seats up, it offers more capacity than any large sedan on the market, and lowering the second- and third-row seats allows for up to 58.5 cubic feet of cargo space.

Finally, there's the hybrid powertrain. The 308-horsepower combination of a 3.5-liter gasoline V6 with two electric motors up front and a third motor powering the rear wheels provides adequate performance and admirable fuel economy. The EPA rates the all-wheel-drive RX 450hL at 29 mpg combined (29 city/28 highway). To put those numbers in perspective, the non-hybrid RX 350 all-wheel-drive model comes in at 22 mpg combined (19 city/26 highway).

The 2018 Lexus RX 450hL comes well-equipped and can be upgraded with assorted option packages, though not all of them are offered in every part of the country. Extras, such as a color head-up display, hands-free liftgate operation, and a 15-speaker Mark Levinson premium sound system, will appeal to buyers looking for more tech. The standard second-row captain's chairs can be replaced with a 40/20/40-split folding bench seat, but you'll have to get the Luxury package first.

If the RX 450hL has its flaws, they're largely limited to the details. The Remote Touch system to access choices on the menu-based central display takes some getting used to. And most adults won't be able to sit in the third row. All that said, the RX 450hL manages to excel at being both a practical luxury crossover and a respectable fuel-sipping hybrid. If that sounds like the vehicle you're looking for, Edmunds can help you decide which options to get and find the best deal in your area.
