Why Lease A Lexus RX?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Space is not in short supply within the RX, which is what you’d expect given its hefty exterior dimensions. The standard car is a 5-seater with a 695-litre boot, while the RX L stretches a bit at the back to offer 7 seats – but there’s an unsurprising reduction in boot space to a supermini-like 211 litres. The RX L’s rear-most seats are really only suited to children, and furthermore the middle seat in the 2nd row is a bit on the tight side. But otherwise, there’s more than enough room for 4 adults to travel in total comfort, regardless of how long the journey is.
Big, plush SUVs like this are traditionally expected to bring with them big running costs, but the RX bucks the trend slightly thanks to its petrol-electric hybrid engine technology. It won’t be as cheap to run as the electric Tesla Model X or plug-in hybrid Volvo XC90, but it can still manage to return slightly in excess of 35mpg and emit less than 180g/km of CO2 in everyday driving. The car has the ability to run on electric power alone at low speeds for short distances (such as in stop-start traffic) so is at its most efficient if you spend a lot of your time driving in town centres.
Lexus RXThe standard Lexus RX is a very large, yet also very sharp-looking, 5-seat luxury SUV.
Lexus RX LThe RX L is an RX with a small extension grafted onto the back, giving enough room for an extra row of seats for 7 in total.
High Performance ModelsAlthough the name of the ‘F Sport’ trim level recalls some high-performance Lexus models of the past, there’s no faster or more powerful version of the RX available – it’s not really that kind of car.
The Lexus RX Vs Competitors
Very much so. Lexus has a stellar record for long-term reliability and customer satisfaction, frequently finishing at or near the top of major owner surveys.
The standard RX has a generous 695-litre boot with all 5 seats in place, rising to 1579 litres if you fold them. The longer RX L can pack in 1656 litres with all seats lowered, but with all 7 in place there’s only 211 litres on offer.
There are 3 basic grades – RX, F-Sport and Takumi. F-Sport is only available with the 5-seat RX, while there are also several option packs that can be added to each trim level to boost the equipment count.
Yes, front and rear parking sensors are standard-fit on every version of the RX.
Whether you go for the 5-seat RX or 7-seat RX L, you’re getting a very large, very spacious car with plenty of space for occupants and luggage. The ability to fold down the various seats adds versatility.
Lexus has built its reputation in the UK by offering rock-solid reliability and excellent customer service. While the brand may not have the history of rivals BMW or Mercedes, it aims to better them where it matters to drivers.
