Since I bought this used and near the end of the model year, it was priced very favorably. The payments were well below that of a similiar offering from another company.

The base price is not too bad, but moving up trim levels and adding options can increase that as much as 80%. Still, fully equipped, itís over $5,000 less than a comparable Lexus RX.
