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

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
CVT AWD
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
