Exterior Features

Bearing an indisputably sturdy family similarity to the smaller Lexus NX crossover, the latest RX delivers higher visual drama, specifically when equipped with an optional F Sports package that adds aggressiveness in the form of larger aluminum wheels and revised styling. The present bodywork is wrapped around a very strong vehicle structure, LED lighting elements assist in defining the design. As well as this, the rear roof pillar is also blacked-out look which provides the impression the roof of SUV is floating. Standard features include the 18″ wheels, selective drive mode, rear privacy glass and keyless ignition too. The F sport package includes 20″ wheels, an even sportier exterior styling, adaptive suspension dampers, and also transmission paddle shifters.

Interior Features

With more interior space than the preceding RX, the 2016 model adds some rear-seat legroom to enhance passenger comfort.

There is a leather wrapped steering wheel and vinyl upholstery as standard in the base model though ventilated sports seats, leather upholstery and special gauges come with the F sport package.

Technology

Lexus retains an old-style version of its Remote Touch Interface for the latest RX, a controller that is mounted to the center console which works like a computer mouse and enables the driver to navigate selections and menus shown on the infotainment screen that’s embedded into the top part of the dashboard. For 2016, a brand new 12.3″ infotainment display is readily available, providing a new Panoramic View Monitor and a full-screen navigation map. Other features include the rear view camera, the Display Audio technology interface, nine speaker sound system and Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity.

Engine/ Fuel Efficiency

The MDX provides only 1 engine; a 295 horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 mated to the standard nine-speed automatic transmission and the front- or all-wheel drive. AWD brings fuel efficiency down to 18 mpg city/26 mpg highway. FWD increases fuel economy though coming in at 19 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway.
