2016 Lexus RX450h – 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show Live


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Bold design falls in-line with the Lexus’s latest range.

The fourth generation Lexus RX has made its European debut at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt, following its world premiere at the 2015 New York Auto Show. It is expected to arrive in showrooms by the end of 2015, and the variant showcased is the Lexus RX450h.

The exterior of the new Lexus RX drawn heavy influence from the company’s latest design philosophy, as seen in the characteristic Lexus Spindle grille, sleek headlamps with LED DRLs and an aggressive lower bumper. It features a floating roof design, LED taillights and dual exhaust tips. The 2016 Lexus RX is larger than the previous generation model, with a 50.8 mm increase in wheelbase.
