We were thrilled to welcome the all-new Lexus RX to our Teesside dealership ahead of its release early next year. Any one that came to visit us on the 18th September were also some of the lucky few to see this stunning car for the first time.
Making its debut at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show, the all-new Lexus RX is the stunning fourth-generation model which begins production this month with deliveries expected in January 2016.
With influences from the NX crossover, the RX has a new striking design, more efficient powertrains, better handling performance and a more spacious interior. Inside, you will greeted with more advance technology including a 12.3” central display screen and colour head-up display. The smart “no touch” power tailgate opening is also a new feature with this model.
Passengers will also enjoy the ride thanks to the improved interior which gives more room to rear seats. Safety comes as standard with all versions of the new RX equipped with Lexus Safety System+. This provides Pre-Crash Safety, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Keep Assist and Automatic High Beam ensuring that traffic related injuries are significantly reduced thanks to more advance warnings and better driver assistance.
Expected to be released early in the new year, the Lexus RX will be available in two versions – the full hybrid RX 450h and turbo petrol-powered RX 200t. The former reaching 0-62mph in 7.7 seconds!
The RX 200t will be available on-the-road from £39,995 and the starting price for the RX 450h is £46,995.
