Servicing Package

Owners of new RX 400h Limited Edition models enjoy peace of mind as well as low running costs thanks to a two-year/20,000-mile servicing package. Included in the on-the-road price, this covers all routine vehicle servicing during the stated period, with a customer value of around £360.

In addition to the high value offered by these new versions, all Lexus RX 400h customers experience the higher performance, high fuel efficiency and lower emissions benefits of Lexus Hybrid Drive. RX 400h accelerates from rest to 62mph in 7.6 seconds, returning 34.9mpg in combined cycle driving and emitting 192g/km of carbon dioxide, resulting in reductions in benefit-in-kind taxation and overall running expenses.
