The 2018 Lexus RX – The SUV, Perfected
Previous generations of the Lexus RX were some of the most well-received premium SUVs on the market, and the vehicle of choice for discerning buyers across Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Leduc, Beaumont, and Spruce Grove. That’s why when Lexus’ engineers went back to the drawing board in 2016, they made sure that every facet of the RX saw improvements. Now, in 2018 and the result is an immaculately designed SUV that offers everything an Albertan driver could ask for.
Comfort and Technology
The RX’s wheelbase and length have resulted in an almost limo-like quantity of space for passengers aboard the 2018 RX. There’s quality in abundance here too, with premium leather seating, beautiful metal accents, gorgeous wood trim, and soft-touch materials throughout. You’ll also be spoiled with technology like keyless ignition and entry, heated and ventilated front seats, a hands-free power liftgate, and a massive 12.3-inch full colour display.
With its large front spindle grille and sculpted sides, the 2018 Lexus RX is a dramatic departure from the previous generations. But with its LED lights, 18-inch wheels, and sleek roofline, this new RX is also an attractive machine. The RX is available in 10 gorgeous colours, such as Nightfall Mica or Nebula Grey Pearl, to suit your preference. For the first time there’s also an F-Sport package, which enhances your RX’s looks with 20-inch wheels and more aggressive body styling to bring out your inner driving enthusiast.
Power with Efficiency
The 2018 Lexus RX comes in two models, each with powertrains that expertly blend performance and economy:
- RX 350 / 3.5L V6 Engine / 295hp + 267 lb-ft / 12.2L/100km city / 8.9L/100km highway
- RX 450h / 3.5L V6 Hybrid / 308hp + 247 lb-ft / 7.7L/100km city / 8.2L/100km highway
Both comes standard with a smooth 8-speed automatic for maximum efficiency and performance, as well as your choice between front and all-wheel drive. Both are also available with the F-Sport package that offers retuned suspension, a lower ride height, and adaptive dampers for a more involved driving experience.
Peace of Mind
The 2018 Lexus RX will make your safety concerns disappear thanks to its plethora of airbags, stability and traction control systems, and the Lexus Enform Safety Connect system which automatically notifies authorities in the event of a collision. The Lexus Safety System + package comes standard which bundles Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Departure Intervention, a Blind Spot Monitor, and even the Pre-Collision System with automatic braking for the ultimate in protection.
