Safety wise, the Lexus hybrid is outstanding. There are front dual-stage airbags, driver’s knee airbags, and side curtain airbags. There is a backup camera to ensure safe traveling in reverse. As soon as the gear is placed in reverse the camera, located above the license plate, is activated, and the video is shown on the color in-dash LCD multi-purpose screen. A crash severity sensor determines the rate of response by the airbag system. A rollover sensor activates the side curtain airbags.

There is a strong emphasis on quality and value built into the RX 400h hybrid. 268 total horsepower complements the V6 3.3 liter engine and dual electric motors. The transmission is an electrically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). All of this is accomplished with a rating of Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV). The EPA gives the Lexus hybrid an estimation of 28 mpg in the city, and 30 mpg on the freeway. An all-wheel drive makes this the one to drive!
