The fourth-generation Lexus RX has been out for a couple of months now and it has been a huge success! Lexus did a great job of keeping true to Lexus standards while trying to broaden the appeal to a younger buyer. The RX underwent a lot of changes for 2016. The most noticeable exterior change is the iconic spindle grille, which Lexus is becoming famous for. The new model is full of new angles that make a statement on every surface and panel.
While the outgoing model had a stylish and modern interior, Lexus has made the RX more upscale and driver-oriented for 2016. Look at the new larger display screen, a revised gauge cluster, new climate-control vents, an updated center control and improved interior materials. The interior room is relatively similar. A special thanks to intuitive technology for a touch-free power rear door. This is a first for the RX, a sensor on the rear door will allow you to open the door effortlessly.
As always the new RX rides smooth and quiet, a standard for Lexus. The RX is available in two options, the gas powered and the hybrid powered model. For 2016 both have the new 8-speed automatic transmission, this results in improved acceleration and better fuel economy.
How Do I Get One?
