RX 500h F SPORT
In the Lexus RX, it was evolved by carefully refining vehicle fundamentals including the center of gravity, inertia properties, weight reduction, and chassis rigidity. At the same time, a sharp focus was applied to enhancing the refined ride quality and quietness that are Lexus hallmarks.
The seats in the Lexus RX feature a TNGA frame, which together with a deep-hung construction, helps to maintain a minimal-burden driving posture even on long drives. The deep-hung construction pulls the upholstery fixing position deeply inward on the pad side, reducing the change in the sitting pressure on the cushion when subjected to a load from the side, to provide excellent postural stability during cornering.
The design of the next generation of Lexus RX was driven by the dedicated pursuit of a unique identity and proportions, born from a dynamic driving experience. It is expressed in the design concept ALLURING x VERVE, which evokes a captivating and seductive presence, with a powerful sense of spirit.
The center display features a 14-inch or 9.8-inch touch display, providing many functions integrated into its soft switches. Careful attention was paid to the size, shape, layout, and information displayed on the switches, pursuing optimum placement and shape for intuitive operation, while also considering how often each function is used.
Lexus Connect supports your vehicle life with comfortable and convenient services such as controlling your vehicle remotely using a smartphone app, as well as services that give you peace of mind such as notifying you when the unexpected occurs to your vehicle.
2.4L Turbocharged Hybrid Engine
2.4L-T HEV on the Lexus RX500h features a front unit integrating a 2.4L turbocharged engine, motor, a 6-speed automatic transmission and an eAxle with a built-in high-output motor driving the rear wheels, and a high-power bipolar nickel-metal hybrid battery under the rear seats. This system harnesses the powerful torque of the turbocharged engine and the quick response of the motor torque to provide a direct, torque-filled, and continuous acceleration feel.
6 speed Automatic Transmission
The 6-speed AT in the Lexus RX uses a wet start clutch in place of a torque converter, offering a rhythmic and responsive shift feel. Furthermore, the transaxle uses a built-in clutch to separate the engine and motor, allowing them to be used independently or together depending on driving conditions.
Lane tracing assist (LTA)
When driving in the Lexus RX on expressways or automobile-only roads with lane lines using Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the system helps assist the steering operation required to keep the vehicle in its lane. Enhanced recognition and control performance enable assistance on gentle curves, smoothly, keeping the vehicle in the center of its lane with minimal swaying.
Dynamic radar cruise control (DRCC)
In addition to maintaining a constant speed, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control in the Lexus RX uses the millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera sensors to detect a vehicle driving ahead and maintain an appropriate distance between vehicles.
