RID­ING HIGH ON ELEC­TRIC­ITY

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GUIDE -

LEXUS RX

You haven’t ex­pe­ri­enced true lux­ury un­til you’ve driven a Lexus RX. Whether it’s the 350, or the hy­brid 450h, th­ese SUVs ride with a plush­ness you’d usu­ally only find on some­thing with a Rolls or Bent­ley badge.

The RX lost of lot of value over the years. That’s not so great if you bought one new but great news if you’re in the mar­ket for a sec­ond­hand model.

Prices start as low as R160 000 for a 2010 model with 250 000km on the clock but we’d go for a newer model, if only for added peace of mind.

We found a 2012 model with only 114 000km on the clock and a full ser­vice his­tory, re­tail­ing for just R350 000. That’s R10 000 more than you’ll pay for a new top-of-the-line Ford EcoS­port.

Sure, ser­vice costs are go­ing to be rough and re­plac­ing tyres is go­ing to cost even more but you’ll have the most com­fort­able SUV this side of the Rolls-Royce Cul­li­nan.

Price: r349 000 Year: 2012 en­gine: 3.5-litre V6 petrol + elec­tric mo­tor Mileage: 114 000km
