2022 Lexus RX for sale – Lexus manufactures a lot of sporty and fun-to-drive cars but the 2022 Lexus RX does not fall in that category. Even though it has an aggressive, stylish and available F Sport model, the RX is still soft and delivers a smooth ride with two fuel-efficient power train offerings. There is a standard 3.5-litre V6 engine that is standard but the owner or buyer can upgrade to a hybrid powertrain that produces 308 horsepower and delivers a fuel estimation of 31 mpg highway run.
The standard RX is a two-row, five-seat model that also has an extended length L model that can increase the seats up to seven across three rows. The inside has a plush cabin with many technology features and premium finishes good for a compact luxury SUV of that category.
The 2022 RX has just minor changes which include standard fog lamps and three new colours: Cloudburst Gray, Iridium, and Grecian Water. The Black Line special edition models are back with another 2500 limited examples.
2022 Lexus RX Engine, Transmission and Performance
Buyers can have their 2022 RX with two different engines. Some trims come with the 3.5-litre V-6 engine while the RX450h comes with the V-6 and two electric motors. During its performance testing, the RX350 trim, equipped with all-wheel drive, ran from 0 mph to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. The RX450h, which is one of the model’s few hybrids, required a longer time to reach 60 mph compared to the other trims.
The RX has a good ride that is comfortable and removes rough roads and delivers a compliant ride. The cabin remains quiet and well-isolated when on the road which makes the RX an excellent long-distance SUV.
2022 Lexus RX Fuel Economy
The fuel estimation is where the RX shines and not only because it has an optional hybrid power rain that has 31 mpg city-run and 28 mpg highway run. The non-hybrid RX350 has a fuel estimation of 20 mpg city run and 27 mpg highway run when equipped with front-wheel drive.
2022 Lexus RX Interior and Cargo
Lexus used fine materials for the RX’s interior such as soft leather, textured metallic or wood trims, and soft-touch plastics. The driving position is very comfortable and easy but the interior suffers some positioning problems such as the tuning knob for the radio which is a long and awkward reach from the driver’s seat. The infotainment system is operated by an annoying inaccurate controller just below the shifter. Fortunately, Lexus added touchscreen capability to the RX’s infotainment system. Although it is not quite the cargo-carrying SUV, the RX came close to that, holding just one less carry-on suitcase behind its rear seats. When its second row seats are folded, the RX can carry a lot more. Folding the seats does not yield a completely flat load floor.
2022 Lexus RX Infotainment features
The Enform infotainment system is difficult to use while driving but it comes standard with many of the modern motors and is a sought-after feature. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and onboard Wi-Fi are all included. There is a standard 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen but upgrading to the 12.3-inch display provides a wider viewing screen and adds other features such as in-dash navigation, a 12-speaker audio system, a standard nine-speaker setup. a DVD/CD player, and access to the Lexus Enform App Suite. This collection of features provide access to emergency assistance as well as limited internet connectivity from the infotainment system.

Buying guide for the 2022 Lexus RX

1. Authentic Dealers: The worst thing that could happen to anyone is getting a fake car or a car with fake parts. This can be really frustrating and painful. This is why you should ensure you purchase your car from authentic dealers.
