Lexus is renowned for its visually captivating exterior designs, and the all-new RX is no exception. This vehicle combines stunning aesthetics with practical functionality, boasting a seductive yet commanding presence on the road. We also welcome Lexus’ new design DNA to the series with the head-turning Lexus rear lightbar and sophisticated Lexus badge lettering.
One of the standout features of the all-new RX is its continued development and dedication to hybrid-technology across the range. In this example, we were lucky enough to experience first ever turbocharged hybrid electric powertrain – available on RX 500h F SPORT. The powertrain combines a powerful 2.4-liter inline-four engine with a high-power electric motor to deliver a smooth, responsive performance that made traversing the Port Hills effortless. This innovative hybrid technology also delivers excellent fuel efficiency, making it an ideal choice for environmentally-conscious drivers who don’t want to compromise on power or performance.
The all-new Lexus RX is packed with the latest Lexus Safety System+ with expanded functions for better protection. Its active safety systems such as Blind Spot Monitor and Active Cornering Assist are complemented by convenient parking assistance features including a reversing camera, Panoramic View Monitor, and 12 parking sensors. These features helped us navigate through tight spaces with ease, giving us a clear indication of our surroundings via a very high-quality infotainment display. There is no shortage of protection when it comes to the RX. Advanced safety features include Pre-Collision System, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High-Beam.

WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO₂ figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile. Figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. The most economical figures refer to the most efficient/lightest set of options. A vehicle’s actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.
