The 2019 Lexus RX 450hL has arrived in the United Kingdom, where it’s available in three grades, called SE, Luxury and Premier.
Offered from £50,995 ($68,053), the entry-level SE is equipped with 18-inch wheels, LED headlights with automatic high-beam, keyless entry&go, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, tri-zone climate control, navigation system, power tailgate, and others.
For £3,100 ($4,137) more, buyers can order the mid-spec Luxury trim level. This flavor adds 20-inch alloy wheels, smart open/close function for the power tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, auto-folding side mirrors with auto-dimming, LED sequential turn indicators and triple-eye LED headlights. The 12.3-inch infotainment system, 12-speaker audio, wireless smartphone charger, Intelligent Park Assist, and other functions are standard, too.
The range-topping Premier grade sits on 20-inch alloy wheels with a different pattern and benefits from adaptive variable suspension, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, five driving modes, card key and sunroof. Rear-seat passengers get to enjoy the heated second-row, and there’s a 360-degree camera system as well, along with semi-aniline leather upholstery, Premium Navigation, Mark Levinson sound system and heated steering wheel. For this model, Lexus is asking at least £61,995 ($82,733).
All versions of the 2019 Lexus RX 450hL can be equipped with the Protection Pack, as an optional extra. This includes a bumper protection plate, mud flaps, boot liner and rubber floor mats. The Style Pack is optionally available for the Premier trim level. It comes with chrome side sills, front skirt, rear bumper protection plate and black inserts in the alloy wheels. The final option is the sunroof for the Luxury grade.
The three-row RX 450hL is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine and two electric motors, making a total of 312PS (308hp / 230kW). The 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint takes 8.0 seconds and top speed stands at 180km/h (112mph).
