The new-look RX range has benefitted from chassis revisions and improvements across the range to increase steering response and driving enjoyment.
RX F Sport models leverage these improvements further by adding unique suspension calibration, performance dampers, paddle shift (RX 350) and F Sport-specific wheels, along with unique exterior and interior styling that befits the F Sport designation.
Available for the first time in Australia and joining the new-look RX 350 and 450h hybrid range is the new RX 270.
The addition of RX 270 increases the available drivetrain options to three – with RX range now offering a 2.7-litre four cylinder, a 3.5-litre alloy quad cam V6 and a highly efficient 3.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid.
RX 270 provides further choice for customers in the growing small SUV segment – offering the ideal amount of power and space for the city.
Complementing the range’s new dynamics and variants is a new look for RX, including the new Lexus corporate identity and signature spindle grille.
Exterior changes include new headlamps with daytime running lamps, spindle grille, model-specific bumpers and revised wheels.
Interior revisions extend to a new-look steering wheel, redesigned centre console, greater choice of interior colours, all-new audio interface, new push-to-enter remote touch controller and the adoption of digital radio* (DAB+) as standard.
LEXUS LAUNCHES NEW-LOOK RX RANGE
Lexus has increased value across the range, with RX 270 entering the market under $70,000# RRP – $12,000 less than the previous entry point.
Lexus Australia chief executive Tony Cramb said that the new-look RX Line is a continuation of the full-scale change that is occurring at Lexus.
“With its improved dynamics, bolder styling, expanded range and improved value – the new-look RX Line brings to life the renewed focus of Lexus and our product-led revolution,” Mr Cramb said.
“The addition of new RX 270 and F Sport models only adds further credibility to a model range that has always been recognised for outstanding value, reliability and practicality.
“New-look RX, with its choice of petrol or hybrid engines, will offer a range of vehicles for a range of tastes,” he said.
