2016 LEXUS RX
Lexus introduced the world to the RX nearly 17 years ago. Since that time, the SUV segment has been trying to match it, while Lexus is busy redefining it. The latest iteration doesn’t stray far from Lexus’ tradition of improvement, as the 2016 RX looks to deliver one of the best SUV experiences available today.
When you first sit in the driver’s seat, you’ll feel entirely in control and notice that you’re completely surrounded by a beautiful mixture of functionality and comfort. The seats, a signature design trait unique to Lexus since the very beginning, keep you comfortable regardless of your trip’s duration or terrain. For you and your front-seat passenger, the Lexus RX treats you to an aesthetically pleasing quilted stitching pattern that’s complementary of the door panel trim. A new instrument panel provides you with all the information you may need during your drive – all housed beside a center console that’s anything but a traditional dash. If you feel you have more overall room, you’re absolutely correct. This is the most spacious cabin the RX has ever had.
In 2016, the Lexus RX returns and greets us with a powerful visual statement. Its enhanced aerodynamics frustrates the wind and the competition alike. This year, Lexus looked to treat you with a bolder and more athletic body style while maintaining the dashing looks you’ve come to expect. The new design implies speed, aerodynamics and adrenaline. Looking at the RX directly in the eyes (its triple L-shape-LED headlights), you’ll be greeted with one of the best looking grilles in the game. The RX’s “spindle” design works its way from front to back, and provides an aggressively balanced stance across the vehicle’s entirety, reminding you that, yes, this is one of the finest vehicles available. As the RX speeds off in the sunset, the last things you see are the chrome exhaust tips reflecting the red light emitted from the LED L-shaped taillights.
With RX, performance and fuel consumption comes down to choice. If power is your game, give the 3.5-liter direct-injected V6 Gasoline engine a shot. It gets you from point A to point B with 295 horsepower delivering a high level of performance. Feeling a bit green? Opt for the 3.5-liter direct-injected V6 hybrid engine. Lexus appropriately calls it a “paragon of efficiency with plentiful power.” Remarkably efficient, indeed – you’ll be treated to 308 horsepower while getting up to 31 mpg city. Then there’s the bold 2016 RX F-Sport that features dynamic sport-tuned suspension and standard all-wheel drive.
Lexus has worked diligently to bring you the best RX experience to date. Comfort and quality are still key strengths for this stylish redesign. Everyone is noting this RX has a more carlike driving experience. We at Lexus of Orlando agree with the review in thinking the latest RX is a smart pick for any luxury SUV shopper.
