The new RX is built on the GA-K platform, the same as the NX, but with a different configuration (extended wheelbase, 15 and 50 mm wider front and rear tracks and additional reinforcements).

This new platform has reduced the weight of the RX by 90 kg and reduced its overall height by 10 mm, with the key to a lowering of the center of gravity by 15 mm.

RX 450h+: the first plug-in hybrid RX

The RX 450h+ is equipped with a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine, an 18.1 kWh lithium-ion battery and a rear-mounted electric motor providing permanent four-wheel drive.

The set delivers 306 hp and ensures acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7 s.

Estimated CO2 emissions should be less than 26 g/km (WLTP combined cycle), which corresponds to fuel consumption of less than 1.2 l/100 km.

In all-electric mode, up to 135 km/h, Lexus announces a range of 65 km.

High performance hybrid​

The new RX 500h is Lexus' first-ever turbocharged hybrid, specifically designed for customers who crave electrified performance.

Its power is provided by an all-new hybrid architecture comprising a 371 hp 2.4-litre turbo petrol engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The rear axle incorporates an 80 kW electric motor.

The RX 500h is also equipped with a rear wheel steering system for more manoeuvrability, dynamism and stability.

The new RX 350h is equipped with a 2.5-liter petrol engine providing 245 hp, combined with an electric motor.

The set allows acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.0 s, performance comparable to that of the current RX 450h, but with less emissions.

More comfort and practicality

The interior is a minimalist space, yet intuitive and thoughtful.

One of the highlights of the new RX is the availability of a synthetic leather interior, created in response to the growing demand from vegan or eco-conscious consumers.

The RX comes standard with a 14-inch touchscreen, one of the largest in its class.

It is flanked by additional buttons for intuitive access to the most frequently used functions.

The new infotainment system includes the intelligent "Hey Lexus" voice assistant that responds to questions and commands.

Easy smartphone integration is also standard, wireless for Apple CarPlay but unfortunately not for Android Auto.

The new Lexus RX will be launched next December.
