The all-new fourth generation 2016 Lexus RX has just been introduced at the New York Auto Show 2015. The new RX adopts the Japanese marque’s bold styling language and bares many resemblances to the smaller Lexus NX crossover unveiled last year.
The main engine offered for the 2016 Lexus RX will be a 3.5-litre naturally-aspirated V6 engine delivering a total of 300 hp and coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels. Lexus has also improved its hybrid powertrain for the RX with it including a 3.5-litre V6 and a small electric motor to also return around 300 hp. The hybrid however, is more fuel efficient than the standalone V6.
Visually speaking, the 2016 Lexus RX has been completely overhauled over previous iterations of the car. With that in mind, a new front fascia has been adopted with it incorporating Lexus’s trademark spindle grille complete with a chrome surround. Elsewhere, aggressive headlights are featured alongside sharp lines with the fog lights sitting in the middle of small triangular elements of the front bumper.

Elsewhere, the Lexus RX includes aggressive body lines on the sides as well as flared rear wheel arches reminiscent of the NX. The sharp body lines featured on the side of the 2016 RX aren’t just for looks however with Lexus claiming they minimise drag while reducing front and rear lift to make the car more stable and to reduce wind noise. Elsewhere, 20-inch aluminium wheels are featured on the new car. The rear then utilises L-shaped taillights as well as tapering creases and edges.
For the fourth-generation Lexus RX, the marque also focused heavily on strengthening the chassis to provide better stability and rigidity. Fully independent suspension is also featured with a double wishbone system at the rear and MacPherson struts at the rear. The 2016 RX is also available with the Adaptive Variable Suspension system which electronically adjusts the suspension damping and steering depending on the driving conditions.
