What’s New for ’10
- The RX 450h replaces the RX 400h and boasts an improved hybrid drive system.
- Fuel efficiency is improved with the adoption of the Atkinson cycle, low-friction bearings in the transaxle, cooled EGR system that reduces the need for mixture enrichment, and “eco” driving mode.
- A unique exhaust heat recovery system heats the coolant, enabling the engine to reach operating temperature faster and switch off sooner during low-load applications, particularly in cold weather.
- Artificial intelligence transmission “shift” control, revised flywheel damper, new power control unit and increased torque output on both front and rear electric motors improve performance.
