At the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 next month, the latest-generation Lexus RX will celebrate its European debut. Additionally, the new turbocharged GS200t will enjoy its European premiere while the Sport range of options for the Lexus CT and IS will also be displayed at the show.
Visually speaking, the new 2016 Lexus RX has been completely overhauled over previous iterations of the car. With that in mind, a new front fascia has been adopted with it incorporating Lexus’s trademark spindle grille complete with a chrome surround. Elsewhere, aggressive headlights are featured alongside sharp lines with the fog lights sitting in the middle of small triangular elements of the front bumper.
Elsewhere, the Lexus RX includes aggressive body lines on the sides as well as flared rear wheel arches reminiscent of the NX. The sharp body lines featured on the side of the 2016 RX aren’t just for looks however with Lexus claiming they minimise drag while reducing front and rear lift to make the car more stable and to reduce wind noise.
For the fourth-generation Lexus RX, the marque also focused heavily on strengthening the chassis to provide better stability and rigidity. Fully independent suspension is also featured with a double wishbone system at the rear and MacPherson struts at the rear.
