As pioneers in the industry, Lexus unveiled the revolutionary RX in 1998, spearheading the first ever SUV to offer refined luxury. Our passion and innovation produced the world’s first luxury hybrid – the RX 400h SUV.
Demonstrating our dedication to creating amazing, we now present the all new RX 450h, the sharpest Lexus ever to leave our design studios, featuring hybrid power and a peerless level of sophisticated luxury as standard.
The pioneering RX 450h combines a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with two electric motors, delivering seamless power to all four wheels. Thanks to the instantaneous torque generated by the electric motors, you can accelerate to 62 mph in 7.7 seconds, while emitting just 120 g/km of CO2.
Powered by our latest Lexus Hybrid Drive, the pioneering RX 450h intelligently combines a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with two electric motors, delivering seamless power to all four wheels. Thanks to the instantaneous torque of the electric motors, you can accelerate to 62 mph in 7.7 seconds, while emitting just 120 g/km* of CO2.
Alternatively, use Electric Vehicle mode to drive in near silence, using no petrol and producing zero CO2 or NOX. The RX 450h's hybrid battery never needs charging and occupies minimum room, resulting in generous luggage space.
* For the SE grade equipped with 18" alloy wheels.
Owning the new RX is a very special experience. For instance, as you approach, all four door handles will gently illuminate to create a unique Japanese 'Omotenashi' welcome. Once seated, sense how the flowing lines of the cabin embrace you, with all interfaces positioned perfectly for easy operation.
Then admire the centre console – here the optional wooden trim is laser etched by Yamaha's piano division, creating an intriguing lined pattern, before being hand polished to create a beautiful sheen. Rear passengers have ample legroom in sumptuous leather seats while enjoying the unique pleasure of the optional 15-speaker Mark Levinson® audio.
Lexus has always pioneered the development of safety and driver support technologies, and tests all new models in the world’s largest driving simulator. Benefitting from our lead in accident prevention research, the new RX is now fitted with the breakthrough Lexus Safety System + as standard equipment.
This includes a Pre-Crash System with pedestrian detection; Lane Keeping Assist to help you stay on course; Automatic High Beam for enhanced vision at night; and Adaptive Cruise Control, which regulates your speed to that of the vehicle in front.
