The success of the Lexus RX has been significantly strong in the USA, where it has been the best-selling luxury SUV since its introduction. The RX name stands for Radiant Crossover. From 2005 through 2018, Lexus has sold 1.4 million RX 450s in the United States. As of 2015, it had sold more than 2 million worldwide. In 2021, it sold 103,726 units globally. Introduced more than a decade ago, the RX 450h continues to serve as a powerful reminder of the brand’s hybrid leadership

The Radiant Crossover is an incredibly popular hybrid! Why? The reasons are numerous. Here’s what some well-known reviewers say:

Usnews.com’s Cody Trotter: “The 2022 Lexus RX 450 checks all of the important boxes for a luxury SUV: It has an elegant interior, a pleasant ride quality, supportive seats, and plenty of technology.”

Kkb.com’s Colin Ryan: “The 2022 Lexus RX premium midsize SUV/crossover is the latest chapter in a formidable success story. Over the years and generations, the RX has often been the best-selling luxury vehicle in the United States. It’s certainly the most popular Lexus. Sure, the RX’s timing has been impeccable, being the right vehicle in the right place as buyers’ tastes have moved away from sedans and toward SUV/crossovers. But to sustain that level of success means having enough substance to transcend fashion and make its own unarguable case. The RX definitely has that substance.
It’s strong, reliable, and useful, as well as being classy, comfortable, and well-built. Yet it’s also relatively affordable.”

Edmunds.com’s Travis Langness: “The Lexus RX crossover is one of the most familiar luxury vehicles on the market. For about two decades, it's been a top luxury SUV thanks to an impressive interior, an available fuel-efficient hybrid model and a strong reputation for reliability. On top of all those virtues, the 2020 Lexus RX 450h gets several upgrades this year to make it even more appealing.”

Knowing what a great seller it is, Lexus offers its hybrid in five trims: RX 450h AWD (MSRP: $48,020), RX 450h Sport AWD (MSRP: $51,500), RX 450h AWD Black Line Special Edition (MSRP: $52,425), RX 450hL AWD ($51,410), and RX 450hL AWD Black Line Special Edition.
