The RX model made by Lexus has been known as one of their top-selling crossovers. Well, according to the information and spy photos that we have got, the newest RX has been recently spotted while being tested. The concept was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show and it will hit the showrooms as a 2019 Lexus RX model with lots of upgraded features. It will be available with two rows and three rows of seats.
As we have already mentioned, our team has had the chance to see the spy photos of a camouflaged version being tested. However, we have managed to notice that the 2019 Lexus RX will undergo some distinctive changes and improvements in terms of exterior design. First of all, the new crossover will get more aerodynamic and aggressive appearance, especially in the front fascia. The first feature that catches your attention will definitely be a spindle-shaped bumper grille. You will also notice a new set of L-shaped daytime running lights that will be using the latest LED technology. The taillights will also be using LED lamps and get a restyled look. The new RX will be standing on 19-inch alloy wheels and it will be available in ten exterior colors.
When it comes to interior of the new 2019 Lexus RX, we have already informed you that you can expect it to be offered in two versions – with two rows and three rows of seats. Be that as it may, the new RX will provide a spacious and comfortable cabin to accommodate up to seven passengers, with plenty of headroom, legroom and cargo space. The seats are expected to be supportive and adjustable, covered in high-quality materials. Lexus will also use wood and metal to furnish the details of its interior. The driver will get a redesigned steering wheel and an upgraded center console. The center console will be controlled by the Remote Touch control with a joystick. The interior design will also be available in some new combinations of colors.
The information about the engine that the new 2019 Lexus RX will be using under its hood has not been confirmed yet. You probably remember that the current RX350 and RX450h models have been using a V6 engine with up to 300 horsepower. Well, that should not be changed much for the upcoming 2019 RX. It has been said that this crossover might come with a 3.5-liter V6 and deliver close to 300 horsepower. It will probably be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and take around 7.4 seconds to hit 60 mph.
2019 Lexus RX Release Date and Price
The 2019 Lexus RX and the RX L with three rows of seats should be expected in the market in late 2018 or early 2019. The estimated price of this model starts at $42,000.
