LEXUS CRAFTS SPECIAL EDITIONS WITH ENCORE PLATINUM AS STANDARD
Lexus has crafted a trio of special SUV offers with the new UX Crafted Edition, NX Crafted Edition and RX Crafted Edition offering the unrivalled Encore Platinum Owner Benefits program as standard.
The thoughtfully tailored Crafted Edition compact, medium and large luxury SUVs take Lexus Takumi craftsmanship to a new level with bespoke exterior and interior aesthetic enhancements and features.
A complimentary upgrade from Lexus Encore to Lexus Encore Platinum membership continues the Lexus commitment to industry-leading customer care by delivering additional luxury mobility benefits.
Across their three-year Encore Platinum membership, Crafted Edition customers will enjoy more of the ultimate luxury and their most precious commodity, the luxury of time.
Accessed via the state-of-the-art Lexus App, Encore Platinum members gain more time to enjoy shopping with eight valet parking vouchers validated at participating Westfield shopping centres and Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne.
Encore Platinum membership also unlocks more time to enjoy travel and experience the luxury of convenience with Lexus on Demand - which offers the freedom to swap into another Lexus that best suits an owner's lifestyle or the needs of an occasion.
With the flexibility of booking via the Lexus App in real time, owners gain access to Lexus vehicles 'on demand' at the Qantas valet of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth airports, or a select Lexus dealership.
A new UX, NX or RX Crafted Edition owner can swap into another Lexus on four occasions, up to eight days each, over the course of the three-year membership period.
They could borrow a Lexus RX L or LX 570 should additional seating, flexibility or all-wheel drive traction be required. Alternatively, a Lexus RC F or LC sports coupe can be booked for the ultimate driving weekend - or the Lexus LS upper-large sedan for the ultimate in luxury mobility.
The addition of Encore Platinum to the UX, NX and RX Crafted Edition models joins Lexus RC F, GS F, LX, LC and LS customers who have purchased since January 1, 2020, and have received Encore Platinum benefits since its introduction in August, 2020. Lexus Australia Chief Executive Scott Thompson said the trio of special edition SUVs brought together the best of what the luxury lifestyle brand is renowned for - craftsmanship and industry-leading care.
"We know luxury customers appreciate the special touches that make up true luxury vehicle ownership experience, and these Crafted Edition SUVs focus on offering bespoke styling elements and unique features," Mr Thompson said.
"Combined with the addition of the Encore Platinum Owner Benefits program as standard, and these special UX, NX and RX models offer customers a truly experience amazing on the road and beyond."
