2016 Lexus RX SUV: full price list revealed

The brand's biggest SUV is priced from £39,995; goes on sale January 2016

The full price range and specifications list for the new Lexus RX SUV have been announced, with the entry-level RX200t S model priced at £39,995. It’s available to order from January 2016.

The RX was first revealed at the New York Motor Show back in April, with the European-spec model taking pride of place on Lexus’ stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show, too.

The fourth-generation RX has been completely redesigned, in order to keep it up to date with the latest Lexus models. The trademark spindle grill and headlights can be seen, along with sharp creases and a similar shape to the smaller Lexus NX SUV. Gen Ikeda, RX chief designer, said the changes to the body of the RX for the latest version “create sporty, powerful proportions”.

When the RX goes on sale in January next year, buyers will have the choice of either a 200t model with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine or the 450h hybrid version, which has a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine coupled to an electric motor. No official fuel economy or emissions figures have been revealed yet, but the hybrid will naturally sip fuel better than turbo petrol model. Four-wheel-drive will be offered in most versions of the 200t and all hybrid models, and the 200t petrol versions will be equipped with a six-speed automatic gearbox, which has been “engineered to deliver strong acceleration.”

The RX will be available in S, SE, Luxury, F Sport and Premier specifications, depending on your engine choice. All models will feature climate control, rear privacy glass, heated front seats, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation and DAB radio, LED headlights and a reversing camera. On top of that rather large standard equipment list, Lexus’ Safety System+ features adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and autonomous emergency braking.

Higher trim levels add more comfort and luxury; F Sport models have Adaptive Variable Suspension as standard, which adjusts the car’s ride and steering according to the driving conditions. Lexus says the F Sport model is “aimed at customers seeking more excitement and performance from their luxury SUV”. Luxury models are fitted with an enormous 12.3-inch touchscreen system and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Thanks to a larger wheelbase, there’s more space inside for passengers in the front and rear. Optional luxuries on offer like a panoramic roof that lets light flood into the cabin, reclining and heated seats for rear passengers and laser-cut ornamental wood.

The RX is the best-selling model in Lexus’ 26-year history, as more than 2.1 million examples have been sold since it was originally released in 1998. The new Lexus RX SUV will be released in the final few months of this year and prices will be announced nearer that time.
