After many generations of hybrid advancements, the new 2020 Lexus RX 450 hybrid offers style, practicality, and refinement that’s perfect for the Idaho landscape and lifestyle.   

Now with a 7-seat option, America’s most popular luxury SUV has space for the entire family.  And with a 5-star safety rating, Lexus owners can drive with the peace of mind that their occupants are protected with some of the most innovative safety features and technologies in the market today.  

Lexus offers an award-winning lineup of 6 hybrid models; each of them offers cutting-edge technology and performance. The Lexus RX 450h is a favorite for Idaho residents looking for an eco-friendly and fuel-efficient crossover SUV equipped to handle our rugged landscape with unparalleled comfort

Lexus has forever been committed to crafting vehicles that are exceptionally lean in their use of raw materials, fuel, and their impact on the environment.  They maintain several LEED- certified manufacturing facilities, where they push environmental stewardship to near perfection.  

Environmental awareness should never get in the way of natural driving feel. That’s what inspired the Lexus Hybrid Drive system of today. Lexus seamlessly blends fuel efficiency, instantaneous power, and indulgent luxury-all with nothing to plug in.

The Lexus RX 450h is a favorite for Idaho residents looking for an eco-friendly and fuel-efficient crossover SUV equipped to handle our rugged landscape with unparalleled comfort.  Renowned for its industry leading reliability, the Lexus RX hybrid won’t leave you stranded, nor will it break the bank as Kelley Blue Book’s top pick for the luxury brand with the lowest cost of ownership. 

To top off Lexus’ commitment to fuel-efficiency, with a base price of $46, 800, the RX hybrid is loaded with value, and it’s only $1,300 more than a comparably equipped non-hybrid RX 350.
