Lexus RX 450h - Click above for high-res gallery

Back in April, Lexus announced the price of the new 2010 RX 450h would be $42,535 (FWD) and $44,125 (AWD). An updated MSRP list from Lexus ups these numbers slightly to $42,110 for the front-wheel drive model and $43,700 for the all-wheel drive version (add a delivery fee of $875 to both numbers). Some numbers that didn't change are the 32/28 highway/city mpg rating for the FWD version and 30/28 for the AWD.

For your money, the RX 450h does come with Safety Connect. This is standard on RX 450h models that don't have a navigation system), while the enhanced Lexus Enform with Safety Connect is standard with the nav system. These telematics systems require subscriptions services to work, and a one-year trial is included with each new RX 450h.
