Lexus LX and RX enhanced

16 September 2016

Lexus, Toyota’s luxury arm have tweeked the LX and RX models slightly. This is what you can expect:

Lexus LX
The flagship Lexus SUV flagship inherits a number of safety and technological upgrades, such as the addition of a Pre-Crash electronic safety system. This system scans the road ahead, constantly monitoring vehicle distance and warning the driver of potential obstacles impeding vehicle approach. The system is also capable of taking corrective action, increasing brake pressure, closing windows and adjusting vehicle dynamics to prevent a collision.

Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control have also been added, the latter allows the vehicle to adjust speed autonomously to maintain a safe following distance when cruising.  The new Adaptive High-beam System (AHS) dips the lights to protect oncoming vehicles from the high-beam illumination without deactivating the high-beam function.

The Lexus LX is available in two models, the petrol powered LX570 which features a 5.7-litre V8 (serving up 270kW and 530Nm), and the turbodiesel powered LX450d which delivers 195KW and 650Nm.

Enhancements to the RX
The top-of-the-range RX SUV, the  RX450h gets the addition of electric adjustment for the second row seats that now also have seat heaters.


The driver now has a Panoramic View Monitor that replaces the previous reverse camera, which offers a wider field of vision, improving visibility.
