2008 Lexus RX Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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

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

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
