The fourth generation RX, which made its debut at the 2015 New York
International Auto Show in April and will arrive in Australian showrooms
late 2015, features a redesigned luxurious interior wrapped in a bold
and chiselled body with Lexus-first styling cues. It combines the dynamic
new look with exceptional on-road performance and new safety technologies,
including the new Lexus Safety System+, all of which sets the all-new RX
apart from other luxury SUVs.

Lexus Australia will offer buyers considerable choice, with the local model
line-up featuring RX 200t 2WD, RX 350 AWD and RX 450h AWD variants in
varying grade levels. RX 200t will be powered by Lexus' new turbocharged
four cylinder powerplant, which will develop 175kW and 350Nm and drive
the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

  • Elegantly futuristic

    The dramatic new front styling of the RX is highlighted by an emboldened spindle grille with a chrome-plated border, available triple L-shape LED headlights and redesigned fog lights. This gives the RX an elegant yet futuristic aura, while muscular front fender flares add to the vehicle's sporty stance and a dynamic profile minimises drag.

    The all-new RX also makes available newly designed 20-inch alloy wheels, which can be customised with variable colour inserts to emphasise driver individuality. Sharpened rear styling exudes a sense of stability, emphasised by new L-shaped taillights that wrap around the sides of the vehicle to create a wider, more authoritative presence when illuminated, aided by the Lexus-first blacked-out C-pillars providing a dramatic floating-roof effect.

  • Heightened luxury and comfort

    The new cabin features high levels of comfort and luxury, while laser-cut ornamentation is available to further add to the cabin's opulence. A large head-up display (HUD) is available on centre stage, while the information display area has been separated from the main operations area, with selected models featuring a 12.3-inch multimedia screen.

    The gear lever has also been repositioned from the front of the instrument panel to optimise operability and create more space for the driver. Rear-seat occupants are treated to more leg and knee space, and the newly-developed seats offer the availability of heating and power reclining functions that both enhance convenience and provide a sophisticated, luxury feel. A retractable power panorama roof will be made available, adding to the RX cabin's spaciousness and providing occupants with an open-air experience.


  • Smooth, powerful performance

    The RX features an upgraded and more powerful 3.5-litre V6 and selected variants come with a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid model's Atkinson-cycle 3.5-litre V6 is based on the improved V6 powertrain and all RX engines have been tuned to achieve high fuel economy and low carbon emissions.
    The RX chassis and body structure have been fortified to provide better stability and control through turns for sharp, car-like handling, while keeping engine and road noise from entering the cabin. All-Wheel Drive offers improved handling performance and stability on both dry and slick surfaces. The RX's fully independent suspension system has been tuned and reinforced to improve handling while keeping ride quality smooth.

  • Safety a priority

    The new RX offers enhanced safety features including an upgraded body structure that heightens the overall passive safety of the RX, and makes available the Lexus Safety System+ which helps avoid or mitigate collisions across a wide range of vehicle speeds. Lexus Safety System+, introduced globally, integrates several of Lexus' existing active safety technologies, including the Pre-Collision Safety System* (PCS), Lane Keep Assist* (LKA) and Automatic High Beam* (AHB).
