2023 Lexus RX (L-R) RX 350h Sports Luxury, RX 500h F Sport Performance and RX 350 F Sport.


3 February 2023


Electrified powertrains headline the all-new Lexus RX lineup, with the RX 350h hybrid the new entry point and the range-topping RX 500h F Sport Performance the new hybrid hero.

The RX 500h F Sport Performance is not only the most powerful hybrid SUV yet offered by Lexus in Australia, but it also redefines the Lexus Driving Signature with a host of dynamic performance enhancements.

Steering, braking and handling have all been sports-tuned on the RX 500h F Sport Performance, taking it beyond the mild sporting modifications associated with traditional F Sport variants.

The fifth-generation family-sized Lexus SUV has been completely reimagined and redesigned, with all variants looking sharper on the road and offering new levels of comfort, refinement and driving enjoyment.

Lexus Australia Chief Executive John Pappas said the launch of the all-new RX is exciting given the model's popularity and significance in this market.

"RX is synonymous with Lexus in Australia. It has helped forge the Lexus brand here, pioneering the luxury SUV concept and winning customers with its refined luxury and thoughtful design.

"The all-new RX builds on the model's long-standing qualities but now encapsulates it in a thoroughly modern and more sporting package that still delivers high on comfort and elegance."
