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.
