LexusThe world's first public release of the new RX


On June 1, 2022, Lexus unveiled the fifth-generation new RX globally.

The first generation debuted in 1998 as a precursor to the luxury SUV. This is the first comprehensive change in about 7 years since the previous (4th generation) facelift in 2015.

Newly adopted "Spindle Body"


The new RX design is a considerable overhaul from past Lexus.

In recent years, Lexus models have adopted the "Spindle Grille" spindle-shaped water tank guard, but the new RX adopts the "Spindle Body" shape.

The color above the Spindle Grille is also matched to the body color for a sense of unity. Combined with the blocky body shape, it shows a more SUV-inspired shape.

The rear design adopts the English "Lexus" logo that can be seen in "Lexus Electrified", which was introduced in the new NX, which was launched in October last year, and the left and right through-type taillights are connected. The taillights have an L-shaped design on both sides of the taillights.

The rear window and the rear compartment glass continue the connected design of the previous generation (4th generation). The creasing on the side of the door retains the look of the previous generation model, while being designed in a more fluid shape to emphasize the presence of a luxury SUV.

The internal design is based on the "Tazuna Concept" used on the new NX, and functions such as the dashboard are also configured with human beings as the main consideration.

The door panels also feature curved interiors in the same color as the seats, evoking a Japanese ambience.

Diversified power system


The four grade specifications announced this time are as follows.

.RX500h:2.4L Turbo HEV DIRECT4
.RX450h+:2.5L PHEV E-Four
.RX350h:2.5L HEV E-Four/FF
.RX350:2.4L Turbo AWD/FF

Among them, the RX is the first to launch a plug-in hybrid specification "RX450h+".

In addition, in the "RX500h" composed of a 2.4L Turbo combined with a gasoline-electric hybrid system, "F SPORT Performance" is also set to improve sports performance.
The diverse power system that can meet the needs of each user is the charm of this car.

Adopt DIRECT4 and newly developed hybrid system


The new RX adopts the GA-K chassis platform and multi-link suspension system.

The newly set "RX500h F SPORT Performance" is a model equipped with a four-wheel drive system "DIRECT4" that utilizes electrification technology after the BEV-specific model "RZ", which was first launched in April this year. Combine it with the newly developed hybrid system to achieve a responsive and stable acceleration performance.

Through meticulous four-wheel drive control, the grip of the front and rear wheels is maximized, the vehicle posture is controlled, and at the same time, a direct, powerful and comfortable electric vehicle driving is realized.
