Lexus RX 450h Named to Ward’s Top Interiors of 2009

2010 Lexus RX450h Interior

Ward’s Auto has handed out their 2009 Interior of the Year awards, and the upcoming Lexus RX 450h took one of the special-achievement awards:

Among the winners is the all-new Lexus RX 450h hybrid-electric cross/utility vehicle, which goes on sale in August. Pricing has yet to be announced, but the current RX 400h hybrid starts at $42,080.

The RX, with its riveting asymmetrical center stack, tasteful wood steering wheel and luscious color palette, is recognized with a special-achievement award for Design Harmony.

Design Harmony is a new category for the Interior Awards and isn’t fully explained, but from my estimation it seems to be awarded on a combination of materials and presentation, though I wouldn’t be surprised if the new Remote Touch controller fit in there somehow.
