Welcome to Ken Shaw Lexus, your certified Lexus dealership in Toronto, Ontario. We are presenting the new 2017 RX. You can find all the relevant information below. Enjoy!
Explore the Lexus RX, a luxury SUV like no other. Combining a chiseled exterior with an elegant interior, and exceptional performance with agile handling, the 2017 RX marks a new phase in progressive luxury. Available in gas and hybrid models, with available Executive and F SPORT packages, and now featuring standard Lexus Safety System+, combining some of our most advanced safety technologies to elevate your peace of mind.
At every glance, the Lexus RX makes a powerful statement. Dynamic lines frame the bold spindle grille, commanding attention with its chrome-plated border. Muscular, strongly flared fenders hint at the exceptional performance to be unleashed at the wheel.
Every feature has been chiselled and sharpened to enhance RX's road stature and aura of rock-solid stability. Precisely honed character line runs from front to rear, creating an arrow-like profile with the flowing roofline to minimize drag, reduce noise and lend stability at high speeds. Blacked-out C-pillars create the illusion of a roof floating on air.
Incorporated into the gleaming athletic appearance are stylish L-shaped LED head lamps and redesigned fog lamps. The new wider L-shaped wrap-around LED brake lamps give an authoritative presence, their brilliant glow spanning laterally from the body to the back door. And on available Executive and F SPORT Series 3 packages, a new hands-free power back door offers convenient access to the cargo area with a simple swipe over the Lexus badge.
Inside, RX is a realm of rarefied comfort and artful craftsmanship. The hand-stitched leather dash, heated leather seating and choice of Walnut, Shimamoku, F SPORT or new Laser-Etched Wood trim bring subtly opulent touches, delivering an elevated sense of hospitality and sophistication.
Embrace a more responsive, more performance-driven, more thrilling driving experience behind the wheel of the redesigned Lexus RX. In 2016, RX 350 elevates the smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient performance it is known for, raising the bar with a 3.5-litre V6 mated to velvet-smooth 8-speed automatic transmission and tuned to a powerful 295 HP.
Lexus RX’s Drive Mode Select gives improved acceleration and steering performance with three distinct drive modes – Eco, Normal, and Sport S Modes – to match your mood and the terrain. F SPORT packages add an additional Sport S+ Mode as well as Customize Mode, which enables the driver to adjust the operation of the powertrain, chassis and air conditioning functions according to personal preference. And for the first time, the last selected mode is memorized when you start your car, tailoring your drive to your desire.
A nimble ride and agile handling have always been a hallmark of the Lexus RX. In the fourth generation, experience even greater comfort thanks to a 50 mm longer wheelbase. A new fortified chassis gives even more straight-line stability and turning control, and a strengthened body structure enhances handling response and reduces cabin noise.
Seamlessly integrating an array of handling and traction control systems to deliver unparalleled straight-line stability and precise cornering performance, Lexus Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) is standard on RX 450h and available on Lexus RX 350 F SPORT Series 2 and F SPORT Series 3 packages.
RX's Active Torque All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system gives you the traction performance that only an AWD system can provide, while featuring the ability to efficiently distribute torque between the front and rear wheels. The result is a crossover that achieves excellent fuel efficiency while faithfully following your intentions.
Lexus RX invites profound and diverse driving experiences with uninterrupted smoothness. By incorporating Hill-start Assist Control to determine if you’re heading up or downhill, RX automatically assists with maintaining braking pressure and minimizing wheel spin.
Harmonious interaction and intuitive control are hallmarks of the 2016 RX experience. With a wide, full-color Head-Up Display (HUD) available with select Option Packages, RX projects real-time driving information on the lower driver-side windshield, including speed, gear selection and turn-by-turn navigation.
Audio, climate, navigation and other connected device control is at your fingertips with available Lexus Remote Touch (LRT) paired with voice-activated Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Navigation. The “One Push” confirmation, reintroduced dual-side “Enter” buttons and new “Back” switch make operation even easier and more intuitive.
Immerse yourself in a soundscape of harmonic richness and power. RX 350’s 8” Display Audio system with standard 12 speakers – or available 12.3” Display and 15-speaker Mark Levinson system – pairs with a host of entertainment and connectivity features including integrated XM Satellite Radio and Bluetooth® Capability. RX 450h features a standard 12.3” Display, while the Executive Plus Package offers a Rear Seat Entertainment System with dual 11.6” LED screens.
Now standard on all models, Lexus Safety System+ coordinates some of our most advanced active safety technologies to help protect against the unseen and unexpected, including the Pre-Collision System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beam. LSS+ complements RX-standard comprehensive safety features — such as Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Backup Camera with Back Guide Monitor, as well as the available Panoramic View Monitor.
