Now this is what we call “extreme update”. The design of the new 2016 Lexus RX simply screams and grabs attention of folks passing by it. This very brave update may or may not attract new customers or be too extreme for old Lexus fans, in any case, innovations are here and we like ’em!
2016 Lexus RX Exterior Redesign
Sharp! Sharp lines everywhere! Its front is dominated by recognizable Spindle Grille with tripple-L LED headlamps, LED day running lamps, LED fog lamps on sides and more aggressive bumper below.
New optional 20 inch aluminum wheels with larger tires will improve vehicle’s stance and along with blacked C-pillar will contribute to its dynamic profile when looked from the side. Eighteen inch wheels will be standard.
Around back, the new 2016 Lexus RX shows a lot of attitude too. Features that highlight rear design are dual exhaust and L-shaped LED tail lights on the sides, protruding almost to the rear doors.
2016 Lexus RX Interior
The 2016 Lexus RX interior also strays from common design. Unique interior ambience gives classy feeling. High quality materials spreads all over the cabin, which simply exudes with warmth and comfort.
On the right from three-spoke multi-function steering wheel is 12.3 monitors with full screen map, place on top of the center stack. Rear occupants will be happy with lots of leg room and 60/40 power folding heated seats. Above heads is power-retractable panorama moonroof, which provides open-air experience.
2016 Lexus RX Engines and Performance
The manufacturer didn’t go into much detail, but we know that the 2016 Lexus RX 350 will be powered by a 3.5 liter direct-injection V-6 engine which delivers 300 ponies. Its hybrid version Lexus RX 450h will run on Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V-6 which will deliver, as the manufacturer said, “around 300 horsepower”.
2016 Lexus RX Price and Release Date
No official prices were unveiled, but we expect slight price bump comparing the current model. Don’t take our word on this, but the 2016 Luxus RX price might start around $42,000.
Also, there is no info when the model will hit the market. We believe Lexus is keeping it for the beginning of 2016.
