Which RX 450hL does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
The Lexus RX 450hL debuted last year, finally giving Lexus shoppers something to consider if they want a crossover SUV with a third row of seats. The problem is, the L's rearmost seats are not very accommodating. With the middle row of seats slid to their forwardmost positions, passengers behind them will still be cramped. You will get a larger cargo capacity over the standard RX, but not enough to make a real difference in how much you can carry.
For these reasons, it's best to think of the 2019 Lexus RX 450hL as a marginally larger RX with more modern styling and proportions. Additionally, we advise shoppers to consider the third row for occasional use or children only. Otherwise, this bigger RX benefits from the same advantages its smaller stablemate enjoys. These include strong fuel economy figures, admirable build quality, a comfortable ride, a quiet cabin and Lexus' reputation for reliability.
2019 Lexus RX 450hL configurations
The 2019 Lexus RX 450hL is a six- or seven-passenger midsize hybrid SUV that comes with three rows of seating and all-wheel drive. It uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine that works with a pair of front-mounted electric motor/generators through a continuously variable automatic transmission to drive the front wheels, while a third electric motor powers the rear wheels. Total system output is 308 horsepower.
Standard equipment highlights for the base RX 450hL include 18-inch wheels, LED exterior lighting (headlights, foglights, taillights and running lights), automatic high beams, automatic wipers, a power liftgate, a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and automatic braking, lane departure warning and intervention, a sunroof, and keyless ignition and entry. Inside, the RX comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and a power-folding 50/50-split third-row seat.
Standard tech features include the Remote Touch interface, an 8-inch display, Safety Connect emergency communications, Bluetooth and a 10-speaker sound system.
The RX 450hL's Luxury trim level (which can also be considered a package) adds 20-inch wheels, rear side sunshades, LED ambient lighting, illuminated doorsills, auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors, a heated wood steering wheel, perforated-leather seating surfaces, and front-seat power lumbar and thigh-extension adjustments.
A Premium package adds a sunroof, wood interior trim, driver-seat memory settings, auto-dimming and folding side mirrors, and a storage compartment in the rear armrest. The Navigation package adds a nav system, a 12.3-inch central display, Enform Remote and Amazon Alexa integration (gives remote control over select systems), a premium audio system upgrade and a smog-sensing auto-recirculate for the climate control. A 15-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system is also available with this package.
An optional Cold Weather package includes a windshield wiper de-icer, an upgraded interior heater with quicker warm-up time, auto-leveling headlights and headlight washers, and automatic wipers.
Stand-alone options include a color head-up display, a hands-free liftgate, upgraded LED headlights, a surround-view camera system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert (includes automatic braking), front and rear parking sensors, 60/40-split folding second-row seats, and heated and ventilated front seats.

Lexus RX 450hL vs. the competition
2019 Lexus RX 450hL
2019 Acura MDX
Lexus RX 450hL vs. Acura MDX
The Lexus RX 450hL is more comfort-oriented than the Acura MDX, which is sportier. Deciding between the two will likely come down to whether you're more inclined toward luxury or performance. The MDX is roomier inside, however, and that includes more usable third-row seats. But neither the Lexus nor the Acura has particularly good infotainment systems.
Lexus RX 450hL vs. Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 is easily one of the most attractive SUVs on the market. The minimal exterior styling is elegant, and the interior embodies clean Scandinavian design. On top of that, the XC90 benefits from stronger performance and better overall comfort. The Volvo is quite a bit more expensive, though.
Lexus RX 450hL vs. Audi e-tron
The new Audi e-tron is a much smaller SUV that only seats five. But considering how small the Lexus RX 450hL's rear seats are, this drawback isn't as critical. The new all-electric e-tron has limited availability since only 999 versions are destined for the U.S. for the first year. And with an EV, you'd also have to plan for charging on longer road trips.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Lexus RX 450hL?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
