Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Executivecondominium?

Lexus has unveiled a swathe of changes to its RX SUV line-up, including new, fewer grade options and more equipment as standard.

The RX, regarded as the flagship SUV in the Lexus range, will now be available in a choice of only three grades, following the structure introduced with other models and dubbed RX, F Sport and Takumi. A series of option packs will allow buyers to add extra styling, comfort, safety and technology as they wish.

Extended equipment levels include the fitting of the Lexus Safety System+ suite of active safety systems as standard to every RX. Collision warning and autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping and sway warning aids, traffic sign recognition and auto high-beam lights all feature in the system.

Entry-level RX models now come with 18-inch alloy wheels, smooth leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a navigation system accessed through an eight-inch display screen, DAB radio, front and rear parking sensors and keyless entry.

Three option packs are available for the RX. The Sport Pack adds 20-inch alloy wheels, spindle grille and door mirror casings all in black. The Premium Pack also includes 20-inch alloys, along with a 12-inch navigation system, triple-eye LED headlamps, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated steering wheel, power tailgate and wireless smartphone charger.

Premium Pack buyers can also add a Tech and Safety Pack. This includes a colour head-up display, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert with automatic braking, auto-folding/auto-dimming door mirrors, a power tailgate with a no-touch sensor and a panoramic roof.

F Sport equipment now includes a heated steering wheel and power tailgate with hands-free sensor operation, alongside existing features such as the bespoke grille, aluminium pedal set, bespoke seats and steering wheel and adaptive variable suspension.

The range-topping RX Takumi gains a new power-folding function for the rear seats, which also have integrated heaters. A 15-speaker Mark Levinson Surround Sound audio system and 360-degree panoramic view monitor also feature.

Also standard on the Takumi are the Tech & Safety Pack, semi-aniline leather upholstery, 10-way power front seat adjustment, and memory settings for the front seats, steering wheel and door mirrors.

RX F Sport owners can also specify a Takumi Pack option – this includes the Tech and Safety Pack content, power-folding rear sets, heated rear seats, the Mark Levinson audio system, 360-degree panoramic view camera, card key and a panoramic roof.

The seven-seat RX L also adopts the new grade names, with the SE, Luxury and Premier replaced by RX L and Takumi.
