Lexus has showcased the fifth generation of the RX and describes it as a completely reinvented model that opens a new chapter for the original luxury SUV.
Three electrified variants will be available in Europe. The core model for the UK and Western Europe is the RX 450h+ with Lexus plug-in hybrid electric technology. With the new RX 350h, Lexus introduces an efficient alternative to smaller diesel and petrol engines. There will also be a turbocharged hybrid model, the RX 500h.
Koji Sato, President of Lexus International, said: “For the all-new RX, we were determined to preserve the Lexus DNA of the highest quality, ride comfort and refinement and take the driving experience to the next level, with a unique Lexus handling experience .” †
Along with the recently launched NX and the newly unveiled RZ, Lexus says RX will help build the ‘Next Chapter’ of the Lexus brand. These three models represent Lexus’ strongest offensive yet on the premium SUV market, the heart of the company.
