LEXUS ANNOUNCES LOCAL LINEUP FOR THE ALL-NEW RX
Lexus Australia will launch the highly anticipated all-new RX large SUV into the Australian market with core hybrid and petrol models and its powerful performance hybrid flagship.
The RX has been completely modernised in its fifth generation. Lexus engineers crafted the new vehicle architecture to build on the RX virtues of refined luxury and comfort, while adding more safety, technology and sporting flair to the way the RX looks, feels and drives.
The result is an all-new luxury SUV with broader appeal than ever before that is set to continue the RX success story when local sales commence in early 2023.
When the all-new RX lands in Australia, it will lead off with the RX 350h 2WD and RX 350h AWD HEVs, offering a harmonious balance between low fuel consumption and exhilarating electrified driving.
They will be joined by the sporty turbocharged RX 350 AWD petrol, with the all-new RX 500h F Sport Performance topping the range and redefining the Lexus Driving Signature with its dynamic new level of electrified performance.
The all-new RX will continue the Lexus tradition of offering class-leading equipment levels and the latest in active and passive safety technologies as standard when deliveries begin in early 2023.
The RX created the luxury SUV concept when shown to the world in 1998. Since then, over 3.5 million examples have been sold, with the RX remaining the best-selling Lexus globally today.
The RX arrived in Australia in 2003, going on to become the mainstay of the Lexus brand locally with 41,686 sales to the end of July 2022, accounting for one-in-four sales since the brand's launch.
Final specification and pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
