The Lexus RX entered its fifth generation with the introduction of the ’23 model. Topping the range, the RX 500h is packed with consumer tech, big screens, and a hybrid powertrain. This Lexus uses electric handles to release the doors, steering wheel controls for the multi-function HUD, and a big screen that relays all of your media.
Dominated by consumer tech features, this Lexus pushes the brand’s interior styling into the future. Powering the RX 500h is a turbocharged 2.4-liter mated to a parallel hybrid system, which makes a combined 366 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged four-cylinder makes 271 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque without any electrical assistance.
