“You can’t buy a better car for £75,000, let alone the £44,495 asking price of the Lexus RX 450h.” Not our words, but those of The Telegraph. Now, retail buyers can get behind the wheel of a luxuriously appointed RX 450h Advance for £549.00 p/m* with a £11,544.01 deposit – of which up to £2000 can be contributed by Lexus**.
Retail buyers looking to make the £549 p/m payments could put down a deposit of ££11,544.01 on a Lexus RX 450h Advance, and then make 41 monthly payments of £549 p/m, and take advantage of a low APR of 5.9%. For a limited time, a £1,000 deposit contribution is being offered on the model too from Lexus, with a further £1,000 being offered at selected Lexus centres.
Equipped with virtually everything you could wish for, Lexus RX 450h Advance models feature Smart Entry and Start; dual-zone climate control; leather upholstery; heated, eight-way adjustable front seats; heated, auto-diming and folding door mirrors, automatic windscreen wipers; and rear privacy glass. There is a also a choice of an electric glass sunroof or fixed panoramic roof, while exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels add visual punch.
Running and ownership costs
Far from being the model’s achilles heel, RX models benefit from running costs that are among the lowest in the premium SUV class. Combined cycle economy from the model’s 295bhp hybrid engine is 44.8mpg, meaning a theoretical tank range of 636 miles. Emissions are impressively low at 145g CO2/km – this means a year’s vehicle tax costs £145.00.
The model’s reputation for peerless reliability proceeds it, taking class wins in the annual What Car? JD Power owner satisfaction survey in 2013 and 2014.
