The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show saw the European debut of the hotly anticipated all-new Lexus RX. The first UK customers will get behind the wheel in January 2016 and the unveiling of this landmark model reveals plenty for buyers to get excited about.
The striking design is dominated by a distinctive spindle grille that directs attention to the front end. Muscular styling expresses the power contained within the RX, and the sharp creases carved into the side panels add a fresh, contemporary edge.
Buyers can choose from two efficient powertrains; a full hybrid RX 450h and a new turbo charged RX 200t. The hybrid variant has been refined to produce more power than the outgoing unit, with an output of 308bhp that launches the RX from 0-60mph in approximately 7.7 seconds.
Technological innovations enhance the driving experience and ease of use. The powered tailgate has a useful ‘no-touch’ opening function and the smart interior features a colour head-up display plus a 12.3-inch central display. Safety is well taken care of by the Lexus Safety System+ which includes a whole host of driver assist technologies to help you avoid collisions.
When the Lexus RX goes on sale in 2016 there will be a range of luxury trims and upgrades available so buyers can tailor the new model to their taste. Register your interest with Johnsons in Liverpool to be the first to hear the latest news about the Lexus RX and to arrange a test drive after launch.
