The new exterior of the RX is based on the Lexus’ new corporate face, first appearing on all-new GS models. The new HID or LED headlamps (featuring LED Daytime Running Lamps in Lexus’ signature arrowhead design) complement the all-new frontal design.

Moreover, backing up its muscular stance is a re-engineered handling package, featuring unique suspension tune and lateral performance dampers/braces. The RX 350 F Sport will also gain paddle shifters, allowing drivers to exploit the performance potential of the six-speed sequential gearbox.


In addition to the existing ECO and EV driving modes, all RX 450h hybrid models also benefit from the adoption of a new Sport driving mode, which provides greater response to driver inputs for increased driving enjoyment.
