2010 Lexus RX 350/450h Gas Mileage Figures

2010 Lexus RX 350 in Silver

We’ve known since the LA Auto Show that the 2010 Lexus RX would be returning better gas mileage, but a press release issued yesterday gave us the exact EPA figures, which I’ve compared with last year’s numbers (broken down as city/highway/combined):

Model 2010 2009 Change
RX 350 FWD 18/25/21 18/23/20 +0/2/1
RX 350 AWD 18/24/20 17/22/19 +1/2/1
RX 450h FWD 28/27/28 27/24/25 +1/3/3
RX 450h AWD 28/26/27 26/24/25 +2/2/2

It looks like most of the gains were in the AWD models, but numbers are up across the board. This is especially impressive considering the additional weight the 2010 models are carrying.
