A NEW EXPRESSION
Like the recently introduced NX, LX, and RZ, the RX also pursues a unique identity with optimised proportions portraying a dynamic driving experience. This is evident in the all-new RX with its extended wheelbase, low centre of gravity and widened front and rear tracks giving a more planted stance.
THE NEW LEXUS SPINDLE GRILLE
The spindle design front is now expressed moreso in three-dimensional form, evolving into a new expression called the spindle body.
The new RX offers a diverse lineup of powertrains focused on meeting customers’ needs across all global markets. Additional powertrains announced in the global reveal include a turbocharged 2.4-litre petrol engine, 2.5-litre HEV delivering low fuel consumption and powerful acceleration performance. Two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive will be offered.
A 2.5-litre inline-four hybrid system is reserved for the RX 350h delivering low fuel consumption and an exhilarating driving feel, while a 2.4-litre turbocharged inline-four petrol engine in the RX 350 delivers torque-rich dynamic driving performance.
CONTINUING THE PERFORMANCE EVOLUTION
The all-new RX is spearheaded by a new F Sport hybrid hero in the new RX 500h F Sport Performance, powered by Lexus’ first turbocharged HEV 2.4-litre engine with high-output eAxle rear motor.
In addition to its technologically advanced new hybrid powertrain, the RX 500h F Sport Performance has the sophisticated DIRECT4 all-wheel drive force system using electrification technology, as shown on the RZ 450e, Lexus’ first battery electric vehicle (BEV) built on its own dedicated platform.
F Sport models feature an exclusive front bumper that expresses a wide and low stance and contributes to aerodynamic performance. F Sport also gains 21-inch exclusive aluminium wheels.
A TRANSFORMED INTERIOR
HUMAN CENTRED DESIGN
The RX’s interior is based on the Tazuna concept, a human-centred design philosophy where the driver is intuitively connected with the car to better concentrate on driving, while still creating a spacious, open interior that encompasses all passengers. The centre display offers a choice of 14-inch or 9.8-inch dimensions for its integrated functions.
The instrument panel and dashboard design promote a wide-open horizontal space that envelopes all passengers. In addition, the multi-colored illumination around the instrument panel creates a spacious, immersive atmosphere even at night. Furthermore, the panoramic roof equipped models enjoy an even greater sense of expansiveness along with a sweeping front-to-back view.
ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES
Proactive Driving Assist (PDA)2, which provides appropriate support according to driving situations and optimal control according to driver conditions, works in conjunction with the driver monitor to contribute to safer and more secure driving for customers. Elements of the integrated safety technology include:
- Pre-Collision Safety (PCS)2
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)2
- Lane Departure Alert (LDA)2
- Abnormal driver condition response system2
