2016 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2017 Toyota Sequoia Review

Comparison Review

The Lexus RX 450h offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Sequoia, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lexus RX 450h will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sequoia.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 450h as you will with the Toyota Sequoia, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Lexus RX 450h or the Toyota Sequoia, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus RX 450h carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Sequoia.

Since the Lexus RX 450h is much slimmer than the Toyota Sequoia, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus RX 450h, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Sequoia.

The Lexus RX 450h has much lower torque than the Toyota Sequoia, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Lexus RX 450h has the same turning radius as the Toyota Sequoia, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Sequoia is clearly the choice over the Lexus RX 450h for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RX 450h has a lot less horsepower than the Toyota Sequoia.

Soccer Moms beware - the Lexus RX 450h seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Sequoia. The Lexus RX 450h has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Sequoia.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus RX 450h than that of the Toyota Sequoia.
