Lexus has revealed the all-new RX at the New York Motor Show.
In terms of style it’s just as exciting as its new younger brother, the NX. It looks a lot sportier than the model it replaces, but, while it sports a sleeker exterior, the interior will still be as premium and luxurious as on previous generations.
The inside houses a large 12,3-inch screen for the infotainment system and all the usual toys associated with luxury vehicles. This time round Lexus is also including a host of toys for the rear passengers, including heated seats and an entertainment system with dual 11-inch screens.
The new RX will be powered by either a 3,5-litre petrol V6 (224kW) with or without an electric motor bolted to it. The standard car uses an eight-speed automatic transmission.
A new adaptive variable suspension will help the RX drive as sporty as it looks. This system will electronically monitor and adapt the shock absorber to ensure that the vehicle corners as flat as possible.
Lexus SA has not set a date for local introduction yet, but we’ll probably only see the new RX in 2016.
