The Lexus of Calgary team is getting excited to welcome the newly redesigned 4th generation RX. This new RX is quieter, faster, slightly larger and features Lexus’ new sleek sport design. Improved on every level, we invite you to learn more about the 2016 RX! To say the Lexus RX has a proven track record would be an understatement. In the twenty-six year history of the Lexus brand, no model has come close to outselling the RX. So when they announced a big update for 2016, we were excited–and for good reason!
“Our ambition is to make a bold and completely new statement while building on and staying true to the pioneering values of previous RX generations.”Takayuki Katsuda, Chief Engineer
Luxury Inside and Out
The new, redesigned 2016 Lexus RX features sharp lines and contemporary styling. The interior has been completely refreshed, incorporating the brand DNA . The details can not only be seen, but also felt.
The cabin is spacious, open and bright. New to this model is a retractable power panorama moonroof, providing occupants with a freshing open-air experience.
When at the wheel, you’ll be informed and in control with a color heads-up display (HUD), and a 12.3-inch monitor featuring a full-screen map for maxium utility and minimal distraction while navigating.
Power & Economy Without Compromise
Under the RX 350’s hood is an upgraded and more powerful 3.5-liter V6 aiming to deliver 300 hp with direct injection. The RX 450h’s Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V6 combines an electric motor generator. All RX engines have been tuned for high fuel efficiency and low carbon emissions.
Safety Is Priority
Lexus has always prioritized safety. The new RX takes it to the next level with Lexus Safety System+. This safety system is designed to mitigate collisions across a wide range of vehicle speeds and conditions.
It incorporates several safety features including millimeter-wave radar for Dynamic Radar Cruise Control for smart cruising and to keep the RX in its drive lane. It can also detect sudden stops with the Pre-Collision System (PCS) and ensure optimal forward visibility with the Automatic High Beam (AHB) feature.
Best of all this safety package will be available for a fraction of what it cost with previous models!
