INTRODUCING THE NEW RX L

THE NEW LEXUS RX L

Sometimes it only takes a small change to make a big difference. That's how Lexus has succeeded in designing its first seven-seat version of the RX luxury SUV - the new Lexus RX L. At first glance, there's no mistaking that this is an RX, with all the intriguingly elegant and incisive styling that makes it one of the best-looking models in its class. The designers were clear that the RX's distinctive coupe-like profile had to be preserved.

ENHANCED SPACE AND COMFORT  

Look closer and you will notice that not only is the RX L longer at the rear, the angle of its tailgate has been made slightly steeper. This fine adjustment is important in making sure there's comfortable headroom for anyone sitting in the third row of seats.

Open the door and you will see just how smart a solution Lexus has come up with to provide a third row of seats and a lay-out that's easy to adapt when you need more space for luggage. Raise the seats, or stow one or both of them flat: it just takes the press of button.

Extended body

At 110mm (4.3 inches) longer than the five-seat model, and a steeper tailgate window angle, the RX L features enhanced cargo versatility as well as seven, well-appointed seats.

Trend setting style

With elegantly blacked out C pillars creating a floating-roof effect, L shaped LED taillights wrapping into the rear fenders and the signature Lexus spindle grille as a focal point, the RX L combines the versatility of an SUV with all of the hallmarks of dynamic design.

Luxurious seating

The RX L features a 40:20:40 split bench-type seat and access to the third row is made easy with a simple pull of a lever sliding the second row seat forward. Deluxe enhancements like cup holders and increased flexibility are available for all three rows.

Tri-zone climate control

Every passenger can look forward to a comfortable drive with smart features like the tri zone climate control system, which gives third-row passengers separate rear air conditioning and dedicated vents.

Masterful multimedia

The driver’s Display Audio system available on Luxury and Premier grades includes: a 12.3-inch screen, AM/FM Radio, Bluetooth® audio, voice recognition microphone, micro SD card slot, an AUX mini jack and two USB ports. Additionally, Premier grade benefits from a powerful 15-speaker Mark Levinson Premium surround system. Second-row passengers can plug in and play with dedicated USB ports for their multimedia devices.

Lexus SafetySystem+

With Pre-Collision System (PCS) and Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) with corrective steering input, Automatic High Beam (AHB) and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control as well as full-length side curtain airbags covering all three rows, the RX L is as safety conscious as it is elegant.

With exceptional handling and fuel efficiency systems as standard, the RX L gives you a driving experience that far outstrips expectations for an SUV. Versatility and spaciousness are beautifully presented by its coupé-like concept, fluid silhouette and impeccable cabin craftsmanship, giving you a stylish, sporting family vehicle.

The RX 450hL brings together a 3.5-litre V6 with an efficient electric motor and E-Four all-wheel drive system to deliver power, performance and control along with low CO2 figures. The RX 450hL also offers a third row of seats, allowing the car to accommodate seven people in luxurious comfort.
