Lexus RX range includes the conventional RX 350 and RX 450h, the latest in Lexus’ hybrid innovation
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 3, 2017: The all-new 2016 Lexus RX luxury crossover has scooped up the “Midsize Premium SUV” award at the second ArabWheels Awards, recently held at the Meydan Hotel.
The fourth-generation RX offers advanced redesigned gasoline and hybrid powertrains, sophisticated safety technologies including the new Lexus Safety System+, driver aids, new convenience and technology features that make it the best Lexus sport-utility vehicle ever offered to date.
The completely redesigned RX implements Lexus’ exciting new design direction, featuring a redesigned and bold body, as well as a new luxurious interior that reflects an impeccable balance of functionality and lifestyle usability.
“The new RX has been one of our most successful offerings this year, particularly the RX 450h, which is being offered at the same price as its petrol equivalent, but with the added benefit of reduced emissions and fuel consumption, and more importantly without compromising the performance or the unique driving experience thanks to the advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system,” said Chris Buxton, Junior Managing Director of Lexus at Al-Futtaim Motors.
The Lexus RX is available with two engine choices: the RX 350 comes with a 3.5-liter, V-6 petrol engine mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission and producing 295 horsepower, while the RX 450h is equipped with a 3.5-liter, V-6 petrol engine and revised hybrid powertrain components producing 308 horsepower.
