The new RX’s wheelbase is two inches longer than the previous model, resulting in greater legroom, and a larger luggage compartment.
Rear seats slide, recline and fold virtually flat in a 60/40 split, while storage compartments are conveniently spread throughout the RX.
Stylised tail lamps wrap around the RX’s deeply carved side panels, and light up in a glamorous display of illumination.
Lexus’s iconic L-shaped clearance lamps complement the LED headlights, so your vehicle is immediately recognisable as a Lexus.
More than just aesthetics, the sleek lines significantly improve the aerodynamics of the RX, and optimise fuel efficiency. Overseas model shown.
The RX seats, based on an ergonomic design, put equal emphasis on comfort and accessibility.
A Lexus-first allows you to open and close your rear hatch by simply holding your hand near the emblem. Available on Limited models.
With the smart key on you, the car senses your arrival and conveniently unlocks the doors. The door handles even feature a illuminaiton line allowing passengers to locate the door handle easily.
A beautifully ornamented leather shift knob, designed to fit snugly into the hand, is just another example of Lexus’s dedication to detail.
Wide-angle cornering lamps provide additional illumination when you take corners, ensuring excellent pedestrian visibility.
Under the bonnet, the Lexus RX 450h is powered by a 3.5L Atkinson cycle V6 engine amplified by the Lexus Hybrid Drive system for a total system output of 230kW
Drive Mode Select provides integrated control of multiple systems to let you tune performance to suit your driving style. Switch between three drive modes (NORMAL, ECO and SPORT) to enjoy pure driving pleasure.
The RX’s high-rigidity body means no matter how aggressively you drive it, your ride is going to be smooth.
Compact and highly-rigid MacPherson struts and lower arms, used for the front suspension, ensure excellent vehicle stability and steering response.
By combining an electric motor and a finely-tuned petrol engine, the RX 450h delivers extra power and instant torque. Fuel consumption is greatly reduced to 5.7 L/100km, and all this without compromising performance.
The meter displays real-time information about the hybrid system’s output and regeneration, encouraging you to adopt an eco-friendly drive.
The EV drive mode allows you to enjoy electric motor-only driving at low speeds. This is useful for quietly driving around residential areas at night and in the early morning as well as emissions-free driving in areas such as parking garages.
Every drop goes a longer way with the D-4S engine, which delivers high performance, excellent fuel economy and low emissions.
In the mood for a sportier drive? The Hybrid System Indicator changes to a tachometer when you select SPORT mode.
A high strength, collision-absorbing body structure protects you and your loved ones from impacts on the front, rear, sides and roof.
RX 450h also features the Lexus Safety System +. This technology includes Pre-Crash Safety System (Pre-Crash Brake Assist, Pre-Crash Brake), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (All Speed), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Vehicle Sway Warning and a Adaptive High Beam System (AHS).
Lane Keeping Assist uses specialised cameras to monitor the lane markings on the highway, notifying the driver if the vehicle begins to drift. LKA gently applies steering inputs through the Electric Power Steering (EPS) when the vehicle shows signs of departing from the centre of the current lane, assisting and prompting the driver to take action. The system is simply over-ridden should an actual lane change be required using normal steering force.
The parking assist monitor accurately guides your parking attempts by superimposing projected parking lines on the back camera’s video feed.
When low tire pressure is detected, the multi-information display alerts you of the affected tire with an in-meter warning lamp.
Know when vehicles are approaching in your blind spot, even at higher speeds with the Blind Spot Monitor fitted with a radar that detects up to 60 meters. Overseas model shown.
Collision impact is greatly reduced with 10 sensor-controlled airbags lining the cabin, providing enhanced protection for all occupants.
