Building on the Lexus reputation for delivering benchmark quality, craftsmanship and premium appointments, the new RX will debut 10 new technologies as standard, and will be priced from $71,9201¹ - a reduction of $1,600.
The RX 300 Luxury now features (1) a 12.3-inch screen (up from 8.0 inches), (2) new touch-display and touchpad-type Lexus Remote Touch functionality, (3) Apple CarPlay®² and Android Auto™³ compatibility, and (4) an additional four USB ports (now six).
Standard Lexus Safety System+⁴ gains (5) night-time pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection for the pre-collision safety system and autonomous emergency braking. Its all-speed active cruise control is now linked with (6) new lane-trace assist and (7) road-sign assist functionality.
A new (8) parking support brake system uses intelligent clearance sonar and rear cross-traffic sensors to avoid or mitigate collisions that commonly occur during parking manoeuvres.
In addition to an audible warning, the system can reduce drive force and apply the brakes to reduce the possibility of contact with static objects in the direction of travel, or static objects and moving vehicles when reversing.
Lexus has also adopted (9) a hands-free kick sensor for the standard power-operated tailgate and (10) front cornering lamps.
These features have been standardised across RX 300, RX 350 and RX 450h variants each available in Luxury, F Sport and Sports Luxury grades, and the seven-seat RX 350L and RX 450hL variants available in Luxury and Sports Luxury grades.
