The starting price for the 2018 Lexus RX 450h has been changed to $46,690, including the destination fees, which is a $7,340 decrease from last year’s $54,030 MSRP. This also means that the hybrid RX will only cost $1,025 more than the standard 2018 RX 350.

While the price drop may make the 2018 RX 450h more appealing, it comes at a cost. The base model will no longer come standard with leather and heated/ventilated seats. If you want both you have to pay $640 for the heated/ventilated seats and an additional $1,100 for the premium package. A moonroof is also no longer standard and now costs $1,350, plus the navigation system is now a $2,120 option. On the safety front, a blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert is a $1,065 option.

If you select all the features that used to be standard, the final price comes out to $52,975, $1,055 less than the 2017 RX 450h.
