What used Lexus RX 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Lexus RX 4x4?

As a used buy, this version of the RX is much cheaper than you may expect. It's also a lot less expensive than the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Volvo XC90 at the same age, making it something of a bargain.

For a big 4x4 the running costs aren't too bad, either. Servicing and insurance look good, and the Lexus's group 15 rating is lower than that of petrol versions of both the X5 and XC90. You can also expect fuel economy of more than 20mpg, which compares well to petrol versions of the contemporary Land Rover Discovery, XC90 and X5. However, bear in mind there is no diesel RX available.
