Lexus RX: An SUV that truly stands out!




While it may seem a bit more expensive than other SUVs in the same price bracket – you know the Indian market works with a prize to size proposition – the Lexus RX is an SUV that comes with attributes like good comfort and sharp styling.

In fact, the sharp styling and the svelte lines gel well together to make this Lexus stand out in the crowd. And considering its exorbitant pricing, it’s a niche product in the Indian market. Be as it may, this really makes the RX grab eyeballs on the move and lure other prospective buyers who wish to stand out from the crowd.

Undoubtedly, there are the German competitors (and Italian abroad) that bring great levels of build quality and comfort, but the 2017 RX 450h scores brownie points as well, particularly for its supple suspension, lush interior and pliant ride.

Therefore, the Lexus RX is a car that you vote for with your heart. Sure, being a hybrid, it also appeals to your environmental consciousness, but the price that you pay to save the environment, in this case, maybe a deal-breaker.

So, if you really have your heart set on the 2020 Lexus RX, here’s a full lowdown to help you understand the car before making an informed decision.

Specifications

As said above – multiple times, to be honest - the RX’s design is something that can’t be ignored. Led by that massive front spindle grille at the front, which is finished in bright chrome, along with sharp lines and cut-offs, the RX is a very unique looking crossoverthat simply draws a lot of attention. It would be fair to say that it looks like no other SUV out there.

As for the overall measurements, the RX measures 4,890mm in length, 1,895mm in width, and 1,685mm in height. The standard 18-inch wheels are separated by a wheelbase of 2,790mm. Apart from that, it has a massive ground clearance of 195mm and a boot space capacity of 453-litres. The base-spec variant tips the scale at 2,100kg.

Under the hood, the RX comes powered with a single powertrain. It’s a 3.5-litre Atkinson Cycle V6 motors and a pair of electric motors that make a combined output of 308bhp and 335Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via an E-CVT gearbox.

Mileage

Where the Lexus RX comes powered with a massive V6 engine, it’s expected to have a certain hit on fuel efficiency as a consequence. Regardless, the electric motors work in tandem with the petrol engine to post a fuel efficiency of around 15km/l.
