2023 Lexus RX

Time flies when you’re having fun! And with the passing of time come new models like the 2023 Lexus RX.  Lexus vehicles are definitely able to raise an eyebrow or two, so make yourself a statement in bold with your acquisition of one of the stunning new RX SUVs from Lexus.  This comfortable spacious tourer is always stylish, and its exotic lines and fine detailing making it the perfect companion for a night on the town.  I rather like the daring grille that fills a whole lot of the front bumper zone in.  The large air intakes either side of the grille add to the Lexus RX’s athletic intentions.  Sleek headlight clusters with LED technology really keep this luxury SUV sleek and sophisticated – just perfect for the contemporary driver.

However, beauty isn’t just skin deep, and any new Lexus RX impresses with breathtaking interior craftsmanship, elegant style, and premium materials.  The premium models boast a 21-speaker audio system if the 12 speakers in the Base model aren’t enough.  Expect incredible sound coming from what is a quality Mark Levinson audio sound system.  All five RX models are loaded with features that keep it right at the forefront of smart and intelligent communications, as well as superior safety systems.  Currently, 2WD and AWD versions are offered, along with the choice of a hybrid or petrol drivetrain, and it’s really these details that sets each new 2023 RX model apart. 

The F Sport RX packs a punch with 205 kW of power coming from the 2.4-litre turbo motors.  AWD and a sportier body kit underpin a performance-tuned chassis to cope with the extra get up and go that this version has at its disposal.  This is a sporty machine that is capable of running the 0–100 km/h sprint in under six seconds.  To match the aggressive acceleration is a strong lusty 430 Nm of torque, which you can instantly access at 1700–3600 rpm. 

Lexus vehicles always hit a home run in the safety department, so rest assured that the 2023 Lexus RX will be safe.  All the active safety features are there, including things like lane keep assist, active cruise control, electronic stability control, collision mitigation control, crash avoidance control, and driver fatigue warning systems, to name but a few.  Each model boasts front, side and curtain airbags which give a total of eight.  Another neat safety feature that comes with a new Lexus RX is the hill start assist and hill descent control systems.  These might be an off-road feature, but you can also look at these as ideal safety features, particularly if you live in the hills or go bush from time to time. If you spend time towing a trailer, boat, or caravan, then the trailer sway control is a real asset to have onboard.  Speaking of towing, the RX is capable of towing a trailer of up to a braked figure of 1500 kg.

Buy one of the Lexus RX SUVs new off the lot, and the vehicle comes with a 5-year unlimited km warranty.  Hybrid models also use a battery along with the ULP engine, so it’s good to know that the battery comes with an 8-year/160,000 km warranty for extra peace of mind. 

As a touring vehicle-cum-family wagon, the new RX will be ideal.  These are very comfortable vehicles to travel inside, with beautifully crafted leather seats and ample seat space, and you can get 461–621 litres of luggage space with the rear seats up and in place.  Fold these rear seats down, and a huge 1678 litres is available.

The new Lexus RX competes with an Audi Q5, Volvo’s equivalent, or a BMW X3/X5.  How does it fare?  Very well indeed, and in my book, the new RX is a resounding dual-winner alongside Volvo.  Here, we’re really talking about the stylish mid-to-large size sports luxury SUV segment.

  • RX350h Luxury 2WD
  • RX350 F Sport AWD
