New Lexus RX showcases new infotainment system


Lexus has revealed the new RX ahead of its official launch in the Autumn.

The new luxury SUV, which comes exclusively with a hybrid powertrain, features a revised infotainment system that includes Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

A touchscreen is used in conjunction with a trackpad, offering a range of different control options.

Using voice control, customers can access Apple Siri or Google Assistant via their smartphone, and they can also choose whether to use the Lexus Navigation system fitted to their vehicle, or an alternative service on their smartphone.

Enhancements to the car’s rigidity and suspension are said to improve driver engagement.

The new RX also benefits from new technologies, with the latest Lexus Safety System+ portfolio of active and preventive safety systems.

In the seven-seat RX L, the third row seats now have two different seating positions, with the additional new setting giving more leg room for the occupant when required.

New headlight technology known as ‘Bladescan’ reduces the risk of dazzling oncoming traffic with greater automatic adjustability of the LED headlights.
