Lexus RX Safety

Cutting edge technology is at the core of the RX and nowhere is this more important than in the advanced safety systems. An integrated approach to safety enhances your driving pleasure by giving you peace of mind on every journey. RX safety technology not only protects you in the event of the unexpected, but helps prevent the unexpected from occurring to begin with.

PRE-COLLISION SAFETY

PRE-COLLISION SAFETY

Utilising both a radar and a camera, the Pre-Collision Safety System (PCS)2 found on all RX models and grades takes action whenever it perceives a potential impending collision. This includes pedestrian nighttime detection and cyclist daytime detection.

Firstly you'll hear a buzzer and see a warning on the Head Up Display (HUD) followed by the arming of the Pre-Collision Brake Assist to supplement your braking effort.

Finally, if a collision is deemed unavoidable and you have not responded, Pre-Collision Braking helps to reduce impact speed.

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

It's not always possible to see other vehicles around you on the road but the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)2 with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)2, standard in the RX, offers an 'extra pair of eyes' to warn you when a vehicle is in your blind spot.

Using a sophisticated wave radar, BSM helps alert you to unseen vehicles in blind spots by illuminating an indicator on the appropriate exterior mirror. RCTA helps to detect vehicles crossing the difficult-to-see area behind the vehicle when reversing, sounding a buzzer and flashing the BSM indicators on the outer mirrors.

PARKING SUPPORT

PARKING SUPPORT

Parking in crowded places and narrow spaces can be stressful. Parking Support Brake (PKSB)2 provides a range of support systems to mitigate collisions that can often occur when parking. 

Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS)2, can help detect when a collision with a static object is likely. You will initially be alerted with an audible buzzer and if no action is taken, the PKSB helps to reduce damage by reducing drive force and applying brake force if necessary. 

 

RADAR ACTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

RADAR ACTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Linking to the Pre-Collision Safety System (PCS)2, Radar Active Cruise Control (RACC)2 monitors the position of preceding vehicles and matches your speed to maintain a safe distance when Cruise Control is activated. 

RACC also works with Road Sign Assist (RSA)2, enabling the cruise-setting for speed to be quickly adjusted based on the last recognised speed sign. 

 

ROAD SIGN ASSIST

ROAD SIGN ASSIST

When you’re fully focused on the road, the inbuilt Road Sign Assist (RSA)2 acts as an extra pair of eyes, designed to alert you to changes in the speed limit. The front camera is designed to detect regulatory speed signs, showing them on the multi-information display. RSA will also notify you if the vehicle exceeds the displayed speed limit.

LANE TRACING ASSIST

LANE TRACING ASSIST

Unintentionally veering out of your lane is one of the most dangerous yet common driving situations, so it's comforting to know all RX models and grades feature Lexus' most advanced lane departure system - Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)2

Incorporating two main functions - Lane Departure Warning (LDW)2 and Lane-Centering2 - LTA is designed to alert and assist you when necessary to ensure you stay within the lines of your lane. The high-performance camera ensures white or yellow line recognition and when the lines are hard to see, the system is designed to follow the preceding vehicle.

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM

To ensure optimum vision at all times, each RX is fitted with an Automatic High Beam (AHB)2 device which intelligently detects both oncoming and preceding light from other vehicles, to automatically shut off the high beams as needed and then ensure they reactivate as soon as the path ahead is clear.

10 STRATEGICALLY PLACED AIRBAGS

10 STRATEGICALLY PLACED AIRBAGS

When it comes to airbags, the more the better. Your RX offers 10 SRS airbags for coverage of driver and passengers alike. The front passenger airbag even incorporates twin chambers that provide greater safety than conventional airbags. For the 7-seat RX, full-length curtain airbags are included on the third row.

WORLD-FIRST HEADLAMP TECHNOLOGY

WORLD-FIRST HEADLAMP TECHNOLOGY

To ensure optimum vision at all times, each RX with hi-grade headlamps is fitted with an Adaptive High-beam System (AHS)device which intelligently detects both oncoming and preceding light from other vehicles. This automatically shuts off the high beams as needed and ensures they reactivate once the path ahead is clear. World-first BladeScan™ (AHS)2 expands the illumination area to cover the maximum field of view without dazzling drivers of vehicles ahead.

A BIRDS EYE VIEW

A BIRDS EYE VIEW

In the RX F Sport and Sports Luxury grades, a Panoramic View Monitor (PVM)2 displays images from cameras mounted on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle onto the standardised 12.3-inch Centre Display Screen which is conveniently located within easy reach of the driver. This assists in checking the area around the vehicle for obstacles.
