More and more auto manufacturers are offering hybrid versions of their compact and mid-size sedans, but a surprisingly small number of them are doing the same for their smaller trucks, SUVs and crossover utility vehicles (CUVs). Among those forward-thinking few, Lexus stands out with the 2012 Lexus RX450H. Upon first glance, it looks just like the familiar RX 250 model CUV, but it has one difference – a fuel-saving, carbon footprint-decreasing hybrid engine.

Key Features

The 2012 Lexus RX450H has the same standard and optional features you’ll find on other RX models and trims, including leather seats, 10-way power adjustable front seats, Bluetooth streaming audio, USB input ports, and a 10-speaker audio system with a crisp sound that anyone can appreciate.

Changes for 2012

In addition to helping you save fuel by offering a hybrid version of the RX, Lexus has also made trips to the pump easier on your wallet by modifying their RX engine to run on regular gas instead of premium.

What We Like

This is an incredibly comfortable vehicle with lots of space and all of the amenities you’d look for in any Lexus model. At the same time, it’s a luxury vehicle that will not only help decrease your environmental impact but will also save you money in the long run.

What Concerns Us

If you’re looking for a really rugged SUV or CUV that you can take anywhere and do anything with, this really isn’t the model for you. This is a luxury vehicle that has some very minor off-road capabilities, but it does a lot better on pavement.

Available Models

All of the trim levels and packages for the 2012 RX450H have the same hybrid gas/electric engine:

  • Engine – 2.5-liter V6 / 122kW electric motor
  • Net horsepower – 295 HP at 6000 RPM
  • Net torque – 224 lb-ft at 4800 RPM
  • Fuel economy (MPG city/highway) – 20/28 (AWD), 22/28 (FWD)

Major Recalls

There have been no major recalls for the 2012 Lexus RX450H.

Common Issues

People really don't have a lot of complaints about the 2012 Lexus RX450H, though some have reported a rear strut failure, which can be taken care of by a qualified mechanic. The thing to keep in mind with this vehicle is that it’s really not made for much off-road use, and it won’t take the kind of abuse that more rugged models will take.

Lexus GX470 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Clayton, North Carolina
Nicholas texted me 30 minutes prior to arrival. Showed up on time as scheduled. He confirmed the work that I requested be performed. He completed the work, performed the road tested, and delivered my keys along with recommendations of other work that might be in my best interest. Was very pleasant, professional, and cleaned up after he was done. I was so impressed with the service he performed and the speed at which the services were completed. I have already scheduled a future service with Nicholas and will schedule any and all future repairs with him if he is available.
