The design language incorporates modern detailing and smooth-flowing lines. It is the perfect balance of athleticism and elegance.

In front, the all-new RX makes a bold statement with its refreshed interpretation of Lexus’s signature spindle grille that features a three-dimensional mass, giving the SUV a more polarising look

Moreover, the body colour is brought down to the lower edge of the Lexus emblem, emphasising the strength of the design, as well as the mathematical beauty of the grill gradation.

This striking front fascia is further emphasised by sharper headlights integrated with the brand’s L-shaped daytime running light.

Moreover, in profile, the previous model’s black C-pillars have been applied to the new RX, giving a ‘floating’ look to the roof.

At the rear, the RX features a popular trait of modern premium SUVs with a full-width LED lighting bar featuring the signature Lexus lettering.

The exterior of the RX wins on the first impression, but its premium interior is equally as stunning.

As you should expect from the Japanese automaker, the all-new RX comes with premium-feel materials throughout the cabin.

Aside from high-quality materials, at the heart of the cabin, the new RX features a 9.8-inch or 14-inch high-definition touchscreen that provides easy-to-use controls and clear information to the driver and front-seat passengers

Inside, every component in the Lexus RX has been meticulously designed to deliver a more seamless and intuitive connection between the driver and car to help enhance concentration on driving

To make the cabin more driver-centred, the all-new RX’s interior fully incorporates the Tazuna Concept, a cockpit concept that allows the driver to intuitively connect with the car and concentrate more on driving operations

Moreover, the centre console and layout have a clean design and accessibility making it easier for the drivers to be connected and be in control

With generous dimensions for all passengers, it benefits from the highest level of technology aiming to ensure a modern and global approach to comfort which includes Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay and more.

Other features include the latest voice-recognition function that enables activation via voice commands by saying a predefined activation word, for example, “Hey Lexus!”.

The New GA-K platform

In terms of dimension, the latest Lexus RX rides on an all-new platform, the Lexus’ Global Architecture GA-K platform which serves as a strong foundation for its body-on-frame build.

The GA-k platform features a lower centre of gravity, improved inertia specifications with a weight reduction of approximately 90 kg when compared to its predecessor, and body rigidity is also increased.

The GA-K platform also increases the front/rear couple distance, resulting in more legroom for rear passengers. Not only that, but with the new platform customers will also enjoy increased cargo space and a lowered back door trim to decrease loading height

The new RX also offers a responsive 2.4L turbocharged inline-4 engine for torque-filled, dynamic driving performance.
