The fourth generation Lexus RX has made its official debut today on the dawn of the 2015 New York Auto Show. It looks substantially different than the model it replaces as the new RX mid-size SUV actually draws its styling cues from the compact NX crossover but with a much larger spindle grille and stylish LED headlights combined with daytime running lights and fog lamps also using LEDs. It has a much sleeker profile thanks to the sloped roofline and an interesting rear quarter window. As for the rear end, it hosts L-shaped wraparound LED taillights and a sporty exhaust system with two tips.
As far as the interior cabin is concerned, the fourth generation Lexus RX hosts a massive 12.3-inch screen part of the new infotainment system and there’s also a rear entertainment system encompassing a pair of 11.6-inch displays. It also comes with optional heated rear seats, color heads-up display and a retractable power panorama sunroof. The mid-size SUV is also quite practical thanks to its power-folding 60:40 second row of seats.
The fourth generation Lexus RX can be had with a V6 3.5-liter engine developing 300 bhp in the RX 350 or with a V6 3.5-liter working with an electric motor generator to offer a combined output of around 300 bhp. It should be mentioned the standard model comes with a newly developed eight-speed automatic transmission.
Lexus will start selling the all-new RX late 2015.
