Lexus recently unveiled the first images and details of the upcoming RX SUV, which is scheduled to go on sale in late September 2019.
The RX features newly sculpted front and rear bumpers, as well as new slender headlamps and some added underbody protection.
The third row seats now feature two different seating positions. In addition to the traditional seating position, even more leg space can be had with the new setting when the situation demands it.
The second row seats of the three-row model have been reconfigured to include a Captain Seat, helping to create a spacious and comfortable cabin for RX’s rear-seat occupants.
One of the biggest changes to the new RX is the significant enhancements that contribute to driving pleasure resulting from changes to the suspension and increased body rigidity. Lexus Chief Engineer Takeaki Kato was determined to deliver pleasurable driving experience through agile handling and exhilarating driving pleasure, and his engineering team worked closely with the production team to achieve this goal.
In addition to a new smart lighting system, the RX also comes equipped with the latest version of Lexus Safety System +, featuring advanced safety and accident prevention technologies.
On the inside it features a new touch-display screen in addition to the Lexus-original remote touch interface (which changes from controller-type to trackpad-type).
Smartphone usage is incorporated into the design ,with a new phone holder and USB port, plus connectivity to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Baidu CarLife.
Voice control is enabled via native cloud connection, or customers’ phones to Apple Siri 6, Google Assistant, or Baidu CarLife systems. Likewise, drivers can select either Lexus navigation or smartphone versions.
The pricing of the Lexus RX will be revealed closer to its local launch.
