TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Lexus RX

Lexus RX Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 The new transmission doesn't affect EPA city mpg, which remains a competitive if not outstanding 18. Highway mpg receives a bump from 24 to 26, putting it two to three mpg over most competitors. At a steady 75 mph, the F Sport engine is spinning 1,950 rpm, vs. 2,300 in the regular RX with a six-speed automatic. In suburban driving with the engine warmed up the trip computer typically reported 22 mpg. A very light foot bumped this by three mpg, while a heavy one sunk it by about the same. Buyers who put a high priority on fuel economy will prefer the RX 400h hybrid. It earns EPA ratings of 32 city, 28 highway, and is even a little quicker than the RX 350. Real-world suburban mpg appears to be about 29. see full Lexus RX review

2010 4dr SUV 245-horsepower 3.5L V6 Hybrid
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
I drive about 10% traffic, 30% city, 20% suburban and 40% highway (75-80 mph). My driving is quite smooth. Fuel consumption is 28 MPG see full Lexus RX review
2009 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
On flat ground with cruise control on it will get 29 mpg. I find that outstanding. 23-25 mpg is average. see full Lexus RX review
2008 4dr SUV 209-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid

Like the fact that it is a hybrid and a "greener" choice for an SUV see full Lexus RX review

2008 4dr SUV 209-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid

We compared the 2008 RX400h (discounted) vs the 2009 Nissan Murano. The gas savings by going with the Hybrid exceeded the difference between the two vehicles. see full Lexus RX review

Not quite as good as advertised but what I realistically expected see full Lexus RX review
2006 4dr SUV 208-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid
CVT AWD
I researched this a fair bit. I did not want an SUV but the space offered, reliability, and fuel economy sold me. I regularly get 26-27 MPG city/hwy combined, way better then any other SUV (Highlander excepted) see full Lexus RX review

about 5mpg less given same driving habits see full Lexus RX review
2008 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6

Poor fuel economy compared to the 3 series sports sedan. Some people have quoted 26mpg - good for an SUV but not good in general terms. see full Lexus RX review
