Lexus to premier next generation RX at IAA 2015
The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show will showcase the European Premiere of the fourth generation RX. As the best-selling model in the brand’s 26-year history—with sales of circa 2.2 million units—the RX represents three out of ten vehicles ever sold by Lexus. The all-new RX’s mix of sharp creases and curves represents a bold evolution in the model’s styling, sharing the same design DNA with other recently-launched models in the Lexus line-up.
The RX interior reflects an impeccable balance of functionality and luxury. The redesigned interior offers a sense of spaciousness with intimacy that proves ideal for driver and passenger comfort alike. Moreover, the RX is equipped with advanced redesigned hybrid and petrol powertrains, sophisticated safety technologies/driver aids that include the innovative Lexus Safety System+, and new convenience and technology features to make this the best Lexus sport-utility vehicle offering to date.
An important addition to the GS line-up, the GS 200t, will also make its European premiere. The new-comer is equipped with a smooth 2.0l turbo petrol engine teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Also new on the GS range, is the redesigned front end with standard Bi-LED headlamps.
Finally, new bespoke, stylish design features will underline the sporty character of the CT and IS. This is thanks to a new accessible Sport grade, available in Europe as from September and on display during the show.
