Best Hybrid SUV/Crossover:

2015 Lexus RX 450h

For the fourth straight year, the Lexus RX 450h Hybrid has successfully defended its Best Resale Value Award in the Hybrid SUV/Crossover category. Sharp styling cues both inside and out paired with a comfortable, quiet interior continues to show why the RX Hybrid is a solid choice in the Hybrid SUV/Crossover segment.

Like the rest of the current Lexus lineup, the RX Hybrid wears the automaker's distinct spindle grille and L-shape LED headlights. While the RX Hybrid's sheetmetal will turn heads, it's what's underneath the hood that really deserves the attention. A 3.5-liter V6 engine and electric motor combine to make 295 horsepower - 25 more than the gas-powered RX 350 and RX 350 F Sport - and is paired to a CVT. This combination is good for 30 mpg combined in front-drive models and 29 mpg combined in all-wheel drive models.

The RX Hybrid is the best-selling hybrid Lexus sells due in part to features like a standard power liftgate and a laundry list of optional features. Some notable optional feature packages include the Navigation Package and Premium Package. The RX Hybrid's ability to provide fuel efficiency without sacrificing other important creature comforts plays in its favor, too.

The 2015 Lexus RX 450h Hybrid starts at $47,620 while the AWD model will set you back $49,020. The mix of comfort, luxury, and fuel efficiency make the RX 450h stand out in the segment.
