RIDING HIGH ON ELECTRICITY
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.
