Used Lexus RX


Buying a 4×4 Sport Utility Vehicle gives the buyer a practical car that also offers the opportunity for excitement whilst driving. The 4×4 also provides plenty of space inside for both passengers and luggage or cargo, thanks to its 4-wheel drive the vehicle is ideal for the driver who likes to head off-road now and again.


Buyers who are looking for a used luxury 4×4 should considering looking at a used Lexus RX, a stunning, stylish, and sporty car from the luxury Lexus range. The RX 350 was first introduced to the UK in 2007, with its predecessor, the RX 300, bought to the market in 2004. The RX 300 packed a substantial 3.0 litre engine, and this was upgraded to an even bigger 3.5 litre engine for the RX 350.


When introduced to the market in the United States, the RX became an extremely popular SUV crossover model. It can be found in both 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive versions, but ideally the 4×4 is essential for travelling on terrain other than well surfaced roads.


The RX 350 has excellent power given by its 3.5 litre V6 engine and also has a six speed automatic transmission. The engine emits a powerful 275 horsepower which provides plenty of thrust when needed. A used Lexus RX 350 can easily hold five passengers; but, there are no extra seats to carry additional passengers. A used Lexus RX comes standard with 18 inch alloy wheels, keyless entry/ignition, a nine speaker stereo, 10-way power front seats, and a steering wheel with power tilt-and-telescoping.


Continuing the trend for technological development in which Lexus designers and engineers are rightly renowned, the RX 450h now uses hybrid technology, which helps it to make substantial reductions in harmful emissions like CO2 and also contributes to a much better fuel economy. The hybrid technology means that the car has three motors combined into one; the standard petrol internal combustion engine, and two electric motors that all work together to produce enhanced environmentally-friendly performance without losing power, acceleration, and handling.


This combination gives the RX 450h the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, and achieve a maximum speed of 124 mph. Fuel consumption is better than may be expected from a 3.5 litre engine and comes in at a reasonable 44.8 mpg combined.


With plenty of extras both in terms of safety features and in-car entertainment, a used Lexus RX provides the buyer with a very comfortable, well engineered, and appealing designed vehicle.
