“This is a hugely important car for Lexus. It really defined the brand after its launch in the late ’90s,” said Karl Brauer, senior editor at Kelley Blue Book.
The new RX represents “the most aggressive change in its look that it has ever had,” Brauer added.
The vehicle’s exterior is significantly more sculpted than the more rounded previous models. A sharp crease accents its side panels and doors, and a new, aggressive spindle-shaped grille defines its face. The rear is highlighted by L-shaped LED lights that wrap around to the side of the vehicle.
The improved interior is accented by a 12.3-inch color infotainment screen in the center stack. Rear-seat legroom has been increased. Rear seats fold in a 60-40 split.
