Lexus India has confirmed its plans to bring the RX SUV to India and much like the previous gen, it will be the 350h strong hybrid variant that will be available in the country.

The TNGA-K platform serves as the foundation for the new Lexus RX. It is 90 kg lighter than the previous model and has a larger wheelbase. The new RX has the characteristic Spindle Grille and the brand's distinguishing LED headlights up front in terms of style. The SUV features a roofline that resembles a coupe and merges into a rear windshield with a sharp rake. The vehicle has modern LED taillights with a light bar in the middle at the back.

Internationally the Lexus RX range consists of the 350h, 450h+ and 500h. The RX 350h, which has a 2.5-litre engine with powerful hybrid technology and generates 248PS and 324Nm torque, is anticipated to arrive at the Auto Expo 2023.

The new Lexus RX will include a 14-inch touchscreen, wireless charging, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Vegan synthetic leather was the material of choice for Lexus' interior upholstery. Additionally, it receives a more straightforward structure that is driver-focused, in keeping with Lexus' motto of "hands on the wheel, eyes on the road." It incorporates touch controls that require little eye contact and head movement to view and change, as well as proactive driver support technologies.
