Next Lexus RX heads for global debut in NY

By CARSIFU | 22 March 2015

LOS ANGELES: Lexus is set to introduce the all-new 2016 RX at the 2015 New York International Auto Show.

Shown here is the first teaser image of the model.

When the RX model launched 17 years ago, it defined a new luxury segment. Since then, it has dominated mid-size luxury utility vehicle sales.

The fourth generation RX will make its global debut on April 1.

Like the current RX, expect the new one to include a hybrid and a more aggressive-looking F Sport variant.

Lexus rolled out an even smaller SUV last year, the NX, which is aimed at tapping into the red-hot demand for compact SUVs in many parts of the world including in Malaysia. The NX was also the first Lexus model to be turbocharged and it certainly won;t be the last.
