Lexus’ bestselling SUV delivers on the brand’s promise of redefining the premium luxury segment. When it made its debut in 1998, the RX laid the foundation for what would be a highly successful nameplate. To date, the RX is the most popular model sold by Lexus Philippines. It isn’t surprising, really, considering how the model has evolved, not just in appearance, but in build quality, technology, and practicality.
Special financing deals with free 2-year periodic maintenance were crafted for the entire Lexus RX lineup this month, so you too can experience what it is like to own an SUV that showcases the comfort of a luxury car with the driving pleasure and added convenience of a high-riding SUV.
The RX 450h (P5,398,000) has a self-charging hybrid system that features a 3.5-liter direct-injection V6 petrol engine. The total system output (engine and electric motor combined) amounts to 308 hp. The key components and control systems in the Lexus Hybrid Drive System were improved and re-engineered to deliver class-leading fuel economy, minimal emissions, and excellent on-road performance.
The RX 350 F Sport (P5,158,000) carries the brand’s ‘F’ spirit and enhances the sporty driving experience with a few key features. Inside are unique F Sport dials with full-length illuminated needles that add an element of excitement. The cabin is decked out in dimpled leather with an exclusive perforated finish on the steering wheel and shift knob. And then there are the aluminum pedals, exclusive to F Sport models.
The RX 350 (P4,498,000) asserts its presence on a variety of roads and diverse driving conditions. Under its hood is a 3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Keeping things in control is Adaptive Variable Suspension which continually adjusts shock absorber damping rates in real-time. Not only does this inspire driver confidence, but it also keeps the ride buttery smooth–as expected from a Lexus.
Omotenashi also involves close attention to detail and a personalized approach. It understands that every customer is different. With that in mind, a free 2-year periodic maintenance program is also offered with the IS 300h, IS 300h Premier, IS 350 F Sport, UX 200 F Sport, and UX 200.
The IS 300h (P2,978,000) and IS 300h Premier (P3,328,000) were built in the philosophy of pleasing aesthetic and emotional values to pursue linear operation that is faithful to driver intention. In creating the desired driving sensation, Lexus engineers returned to the basics to evolve a comfortable driving experience.
The IS F Sport (P3,808,000) is fitted with 19-inch multispoke wheels in a dark metallic finish that pays homage to the RC and LC models. Keeping in contact with the road underneath are 235/40 R19 tires for the front and 265/35 R19 for the rear. These performance tires offer the necessary grip and stability needed during spirited driving.
The Lexus UX 200 F Sport (P3,378,000) is compact and responsive, with a best-in-class turning radius. Exclusive to the F Sport variant is the LFA-inspired gauges; 18-inch alloy wheels; F Sport grille; and sport seats. Under the hood, a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine with a new Direct-Shift continuously variable transmission realizes both excellent fuel economy and exhilarating driving performance.
The Lexus UX 200 (P2,658,000) is fondly known as the gateway model into the world of Lexus and the ideal crossover for the buyer who expects more in a vehicle. It offers SUV performance, stunning design, and the nimble handling of a hatchback.
