The 2008 Lexus RX350 and RX400h offer the comfort and refinement of luxury cars, combined with the spacious, versatile interior of utility vehicles. Several high-tech features are available--like adaptive front lighting--that aren't widely available in its class. The RX400h especially, with its advanced hybrid powertrain, stands out for its high fuel efficiency and 27-mpg city rating. The models also have a very strong reputation for quality; for 2007, the RX was the highest-rated midsize premium multi-activity vehicle in the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study (IQS).
