Elegant L-finesse design
The RX 450h showcases the Lexus L-finesse design philosophy. The result is a covetable SUV that turns heads wherever it goes. Its aerodynamic shape is designed to reduce drag and minimise cabin noise, ensuring a smooth and refined ride under all driving conditions. On sunnier days, in the F Sport and Sports Luxury models, you can open the power operated moonroof for extra ventilation and open air cruising.
Remarkably dynamic front design
The Lexus signature spindle grille provides a strong and expressive front design with jewel-like headlights to enhance vision, while arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights underline this SUV's distinctive look. The RX 450h features an impressive front bumper design.
Smart Key Card for easy entry
The hands-free Smart Key Card that comes with the Sports Luxury model allows you to unlock and lock doors and start the engine when your foot is on the brake pedal - without removing it from your pocket or bag. As soon as the proximity sensor detects the presence of your uniquely coded Smart Key Card, the door unlocks when you touch the handle. The card also activates an illuminated entry sequence. A conventional key is also enclosed for emergency use.
Smart lighting for better visibility
The RX 450h's High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps provide a whiter, broader spread of light for better visibility at night. The lights automatically adjust their level to ensure they're pointing in the right direction even if you're carrying a heavy load. Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are now standard across the RX 450h range, increasing visibility and providing a safer driving experience. The Adaptive Front-lighting System on the Sports Luxury swivels the headlamps when travelling around tight bends to greatly improve forward visibility - it's the next best thing to seeing around corners. The Sports Luxury model includes LED low beam headlamps, which use less power and are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle.
Enhanced field of vision
The exterior mirrors provide an expansive view of the area behind you. Large indicators have also been incorporated in the mirrors to help other motorists see you. The Luxury and F Sport models feature self-dimming exterior mirrors, which reduce the annoyance of headlamp glare from following traffic. These mirrors are heated, activating whenever the rear demister is turned on. The Sports Luxury model also features a wide-angle side camera built into the left exterior mirror. When you're parking, the LCD screen displays an expansive view of the area to the left of the vehicle, for easier manoeuvring.
The RX 450h features a range of distinctive design elements including a unique front bumper and striking spindle grille and a unique fog light surround design. The elegant blue highlights also appear on the Lexus emblem, vehicle badging, engine cover, key fob and a chrome side strip that features the word 'HYBRID'.
