Refreshed and with a dynamic design that magnetizes
Lexus has unveiled the all-new 2023 RX, which features an impressive range of engine options, including the RX 350h, RX 450h+ and RX 500h . Although the Plug-in Hybrid option attracted lively interest, the vehicle's design attracted attention and won impressions.
The Lexus RX range has always been a popular choice among luxury car enthusiasts, and the all-new 2023 RX raises the bar even higher with its stylish design and impressive engine options. The RX 450h+ features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine and an 18.1 kWh lithium-ion rechargeable battery. An additional rear electric motor allows permanent all-wheel drive. The lithium-ion battery offers a fully electric range of over 65km.
With the hybrid drive system, drivers can enjoy a smooth, dynamic drive while saving fuel costs, while with the plug-in hybrid system, trips can be made further with longer range and even more fuel efficiency. The hybrid system also includes regenerative braking technology that captures energy that would otherwise be lost during braking and stores it in the battery for later use.
The 2.5-liter plug-in hybrid powertrain delivers 245 DIN hp and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 8.0 seconds with a larger battery that can be charged using a standard household outlet. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that offers smooth shifting and improved acceleration. At the same time the model has a number of driving modes, including a pure electric mode that allows the vehicle to operate exclusively on electricity for up to 69 kilometers. This mode is ideal for short commutes and city driving.
The RX 350h's Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid seamlessly delivers power from a 2.5-litre petrol engine, producing 250 DIN hp or 184 kW. The result is an acceleration from 0 – 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds, alongside excellent performance, with CO2 emissions of 142 – 149 g/km* and fuel consumption of 6.3 – 6.6 l/100 km*. The system recharges while driving and braking, providing excellent autonomy.
The standout of the new range is the RX 500h, with power derived from an all-new hybrid architecture consisting of a 2.4-liter turbo engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission, the RX 500h delivers 371 DIN hp and 645 Nm of torque for exciting acceleration and extremely dynamic handling thanks to DIRECT4. The RX 500h also features a high-capacity battery that provides extended electric-only driving, making it the ideal choice for drivers who want both power and efficiency.
The Lexus RX has undisputedly reigned supreme in luxury and reliable SUVs, recording a long track record of consistency and performance over many years. The new 2023 model comes to continue this tradition with its cutting-edge technology and improved performance.
