As a pioneer of the luxury SUV segment, Lexus continues to make a testament in the wake of unveiling Lexus RX luxury SUV planned to go on sale late in September 2019.
The Japanese marque SUV’s exterior keeps a powerful and sporty appearance with the improved character line that runs from the front to the rear of vehicles.
The appearance gives the RX’s overall exceptional flow and consistency, resulting in an elegant, dynamic exterior that emphasises Lexus’ new design language.
Lexus’s adrenaline-charged performance following the route of LC and LS flagship coupe and sedan is a careful inspection of every part of the vehicle to improve the rigidity of the body and suspension system.
To further enhance performance, engineers also added new shock absorbers and brake control system.
The result is a vehicle with an excellent handling feel and precision, allowing users to trace their desired driving lines.
Sculpted front and rear bumper designs achieve a flowing integration of character lines from front to rear, elevating the RX’s dynamic appearance.
Connecting the rocker panels to the bottom of the grille in a straight line delivers heightened strength and stability.
Designers linked the lower bumper with the rear fenders, which blend with the window graphic on the bottom section of the rear pillar, lending an elegant and powerful shape to the rear.
By presenting components such as the muffler and the underbody shield to stress the vehicle’s width, the designers could provide the RX with a sporty, aggressive rear.
The signature Lexus spindle grille adds modulation to the ‘L’ pattern mesh and a new frame that blends into the side of the front bumpers providing a unified profile.
New slender headlamps give the front fascia a newfound sharpness.
In the rear, combination lamps feature an “L” shape motif.
The third-row seats now feature two different seating positions.
Besides the traditional seating position, it can have even more leg space with the new setting when the situation demands it.
Designers have reconfigured the second-row seats of the three-row model to include a Captain Seat, helping to create a spacious cabin for RX’s rear-seat occupants.
To enhance safety with oncoming traffic, they equip the new RX with BladeScan type Adaptive High beam System (AHS) and LED headlamps light shining onto a blade mirror spinning at high speed.
It transfers the light to a lens to illuminate the road ahead.
Lexus Safety System
The Pre-Collision System uses an in-vehicle camera and front-grille-mounted millimeter-wave radar to help spot bicyclists during daytime and pedestrians during low-light conditions.
By combining Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Lane Tracing Assist, the new RX makes it easier for the driver to stay in the lane.
If the system detects a potential lane departure, then LTA alerts the driver with a visual warning and either an audible alert or steering wheel vibration (it may also apply a small steering correction).
The AHS automatically reduces brightness in specific regions ahead of the car to avoid harshly illuminating oncoming vehicles or those in front of the vehicle.
Lexus remains committed to rapidly developing its advanced safety technologies and incorporating them to as many of its vehicles as possible.
The new RX features a new touch-display screen in addition to the Lexus-original remote touch interface — 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.
Lexus is committed to always listening to their customers, and letting them select the operation that best suits their preferences or circumstances.Follow us on Social Media
