Huge drive day with the all-new 2016 Lexus RX lineup! Very, very impressive design upgrades create a sexy and macho look, while the chiseled panels and floating glasshouse make the new RX look dramatically lower and wider than ever before. The new masculinity of the RX outside is reflected inside and on full throttle as well.
Huge batch of photos and observations to share in the full reviews — but these three videos and 20 preview images are cool enough to share on the same day! Near realtime media coverage! =]
The drive videos below include a drive of the RX450h F Sport around a quarry near Raleigh, North Carolina… in a light drizzle! Conditions were perfect to answer that forever question:
Will it drift?>
Also a sporty and fast drive of the new RX350 F Sport AWD’s incredible paddle-shifted eight-speed automatic, exclusive Sport Plus drive mode and adjustable suspension firmness.
In the third vid, Full lighting demonstrations of the Luxury Package LEDs front and rear, a design analysis and trim details — like the swappable blade inserts of the 20-inch alloys of the red RX350 FWD Luxury Pack.
Watch this space for full write-ups soon — and look for the first 2016 RXs to arrive in showrooms by the end of the year.
