Brilliant car, excellent upgrade from 2008 RX400h
My father purchased this 2016 RX450h from Lexus of Sutherland in late 2017 as a demo vehicle upgrading from a 2008 RX400h with over 200,000 km's on the clock. Both him & i couldn't be happier with this car, it is absolutely beautiful, especially in the Sonic Titanium colour.
The vehicle was purchased with 9,500 km's on the clock & is currently sitting at 55,000 km's. In the close to two years that we have owned the vehicle, no issues have arose, servicing has been free (3 years free servicing came with the purchase) & fuel economy has been out...standing, 6.9L/100km for a large SUV is excellent! The 3.5L V6 mated to the hybrid system is great! Extremely smooth switch from electric to petrol (you cant even feel it), the vehicle takes off at the lights very quickly and leaves my Mum's C200 Bluetec left behind. Fuel economy is great as mentioned above. The vehicle is very smooth to drive soaking up the harsh Aussie roads beautifully. Comfort is great thanks partly to the soft heated & cooled leather seats but also to the well tuned factory suspension. The infotainment system as much as the car enthusiasts bag it out actually is pretty good once you get to know it after a few days, the remote touch controller can have its sensitivity turned down which makes a huge difference in day-to-day operation. The only small annoyance is that it doesn't have Android Auto but that may be coming by the end of the year.
Love that its a hybrid
This is my husband's car. He drives it daily commuting to and from work. I have only driven it a handful of times.
Nice smooth ride. Love that it's a hybrid although I am waiting for a full electric car to be affordable. Parking sensor work great - love that you can have a birds eye 360 view of the car while parking! Love the built in, retractable sunshades at back seat windows for kids.
Lexus has great customer service as always that's why we continue to purchase cars with them.
Best car I have owned
This Lexus would be the best car I have owned ever.
We do a lot of driving with the business and we’ve done almost 100,000kms and the car still drives like new.
The service team at Brighton Lexus in Melbourne are also one of the best sales and after sales teams. We got a great deal on the best car.
So smooth the ride. Amazing to park and it fits so much in that boot!!
Great car for family
Bought a 2015 Lexus RX450H in 2016, our family loves the car as it's roomy but not too big to drive daily. Also, quite economy to run for a big car (around 8-9Lt/100). My wife's old car is 2011 Kia Sportage Platinum and with the engine of 2.4Lt and smaller car, her fuel consumption was nearly 20Lt/100 due to short run and start stop.
Extreme reliable car, comfort, reasonable cost to run.
Driving experience is superb comparing to German car that driven for 10 years. Performance wise good enough compare how much petrol it drinks. Handling bit soft compare to German car, but lot stress to drive.. noise pretty much the most quiet.. especially the put up and down window.
I like everything on this car, just the mouse control inforteinmant need improvement.. space excellent..
Running cost is reasonable..
Perfect family car
Excellent for distance travelling as well as city driving. Very comfortable and easy to get in and out. Power and fuel economy are fantastic. Great leg room for front and rear passengers. Gopd parcel space in the back. A luxury ride for all passengers and all age groups. Extremely reliable.
After 10 years of driving European cars and being treated like shit wanted a change
It's quite really quite. So far love the adaptive cruise and handling around bends is excellent it is really stable at high speeds.
Love thee fact that accessories like all weather mats don't cost a fortune.
The steering response is great and Lane keep assist works well accept it does prefer if you are more towards the right of the Lane.
It's not a full on impressive car like the European ones but I love that every thing just works .
Don't like the fact that enform software doesn't work with Android 7.0.
Haven't figured out why it warns ...
