Lexus RX 350L and NX 300 Now Open for Booking
2018 begins on a high note for Lexus Malaysia as it announces today that all authorised Lexus centres across Malaysia are now accepting orders for the the 2018 NX 300 and RX 350L.
Debuting last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the RX 350L sees the inclusion of a third row, seating up to seven passengers without compromising on its class-leading cargo room. The seats are fixed with a 40/20/40 split bench-type along with a longer and slightly higher rear to accommodate passengers in the third row.
In terms of performance, the RX350L is powered with a 3.5-litre V6 engine that delivers 294 hp and is optimised with an 8-speed Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). It is also fitted with Lexus’ Active Torque Control AWD system to vary torque distribution anywhere from 100:0 to 50:50 front to rear, depending on driving dynamics and road conditions.
On the other hand, the NX 300 was unveiled at last year’s Shanghai Motor Show, receiving bold exterior styling refinements to appeal to the next generation of luxury consumers. The entire front fascia has been refreshed, with the upper portion of the grille and the front bumpers redesigned to give the car a sleeker overall shape and excellent aerodynamics. The rear end sports a new look as well; with its rear bumper cover now incorporating elements of the grille’s spindle motif.
Powering the NX 300 is Lexus’ turbocharged 2.0-liter engine churning out 235 hp while the Hybrid variant conversely comes with a 2.5-liter inline-four combined with a pair of electric motors. The NX comes in four variants – Urban, Premium, F Sport and Hybrid.
Malaysians who wish to be among the first to own Lexus’ newest luxury crossovers can now place their bookings at all Lexus centres nationwide. The pair comes with a comprehensive warranty of five years covering unlimited mileage while complete aftersales support is available at seven locations across Malaysia, where professional technicians with extensive training by Lexus are ready to serve.
Fully imported from Japan, the 2018 RX 350L and the four new variants of the NX 300 are scheduled to arrive in early February 2018.
