The Launch of The All-New Lexus RX

Lexus has reinvented the luxury crossover with the launch of the all-new RX. First launched in 1998, the Lexus RX has created the blueprint for luxury crossover utility vehicles and set the tone in the segment ever since. 

The fifth-generation RX comes with a choice of three powertrains, two of which are electrified to contribute to the realisation of a carbon-neutral society. A newly developed inline 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that produces 275 hp and 430 nm of torque is mated to a new 8-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission (8AT). Meanwhile, the new hybrid-electric system combines a 2.5-liter petrol engine and electric motor to produce a total of 247 hp, which is mated to an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (E-CVT) to provide a fuel consumption value of 20.7 km/L. 

The hybrid-electric system pairing a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine with an electric motor, provides a combined power of 366 hp mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that offers fuel consumption of 15.5 km/L while delivering a new level of driving pleasure. 

The 2023 RX’s boasts a spacious interior offers with ample luggage space and five newly designed luxury seats aside from the Lexus Safety System.
