It’s the best-selling Lexus in Canada – and it’s about to get even better. In fact, Lexus is reinventing the luxury crossover category, the very category that it helped to pioneer 20 years ago, and the all-new 2017 Canadian built Lexus RX is indeed the best RX yet.
“Crafting a new RX is one of the most challenging responsibilities we undertake at Lexus, for the very reason that it has been so well received by our guests over the past 20 years,” said Cyril Dimitris, Director of Lexus Canada. “The all-new, 2017 Lexus RX reinvents itself as a more seductive and dynamic version of itself as it simultaneously retains all that our loyal RX guests love about the model.”
The result – a luxury crossover combines the flexibility of a sport utility vehicle with the driving comfort of a luxury sedan, wrapped in an elegant and sophisticated package – luxuriously equipped with smart technology and comfort features that deliver an intuitive, worry-free experience, every time.
The interior of the new RX reflects an impeccable balance of
functionality and opulence. Like virtually everything else on this exceptionally well-crafted and thoughtful redesign of the RX, there have been a number of enhancements to the interior trim The Lexus RX uses Dynamic Torque Control AWD, which processes information from a number of sensors, including wheel-speed sensors and steering angle sensors. Based on this data, it instantaneously routes engine power to the rear wheels to maximize tractability on varying surfaces and road conditions.
A plethora of vital safety features and technologies are included on all RX models – including 10 airbags, a Direct Tire Pressure Monitor System with available tire inflation display function, vehicle theft-deterrent system, and engine immobilizer system.
Braking and traction control systems include: four-wheel ventilated power assisted disc brakes; a four-sensor, four-channel Antilock Braking System with Electronic Brake force Distribution and Brake Assist; Traction Control; Vehicle Stability Control; and Hill-start Assist Control.
The 2017 RX is available in three models: RX 350, RX 350 F SPORT and the RX 450h with the Lexus Hybrid Drive – each with its own signature characteristics that deliver an emotional, confident and responsive driving experience.
