Lexus breaks cover on all-new flagship SUV, the LX

Lexus has unveiled the second model of the next generation of Lexus at the world premiere of the new LX in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Since its launch in 1996, the LX has been well received as Lexus’ flagship SUV due to its high-quality, ride comfort, and driving performance that can withstand all kinds of roads around the world. This has been achieved by refining the founding concepts of the LX: “reliability”, “durability”, and “rough-road driving performance”.

A taste of what to expect in the new LX

The new LX will be available with a high-output, high-torque 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo petrol engine and a powerful 3.3-litre V6 diesel twin-turbo engine.

Electronically controlled brakes (ECB) and an electric power steering system (EPS) are also adopted to ensure customers will be able to enjoy Lexus-unique driving performance to the fullest, both on-road and off-road. These innovations, plus the adoption of two new available powertrains, will contribute to improved environmental performance, reducing annual CO2 emissions when the vehicle is in use. The reduction in emissions equates to approximately 20 percent on a global cumulative basis, compared to the previous mode.

The instrument panel features Lexus’ first dual display with a 12.3-inch upper screen and 7-inch lower screen; and as a world first, the LX features a Back Underfloor View functionality, which displays the area beneath the rear part of the vehicle.

The new LX is more personalised, with the newly added VIP grade, which is specially designed with four independent seats for elegant and safe travel on all kinds of roads.

New 22-inch forged alloy wheels employ the high contrast of black and machined brilliance to emphasise that they are the largest ever offered by Lexus.
