The V6 Atkinson Cycle engine features Dual VVT-i and advanced D-4S fuel injection system to deliver exhilarating performance with outstanding drivability, excellent fuel efficiency, and reduced emissions.
One of the biggest changes to RX is the significant enhancements that contribute to driving pleasure resulting from changes to the suspension and increased body rigidity. The improved handling creates a unity with the vehicle through its steering response and ride comfort.
It was realized by making a lightweight, high rigidity body structure from hot-stamp, high-tensile steel and aluminium, with strategically positioned reinforcements, the extensive use of spot welds and body adhesives, and advanced production technologies including laser screw welding.
The new Lexus RX features Active Cornering Assist (ACA) which results in a truly linear steering feel, allowing the RX to accurately trace the desired driving line in all types of conditions. The redesigned RX’s shock absorbers are now equipped with a new Friction Control Device (FCD) which further reduces high- frequency vibrations caused by minute road surface imperfections. The shock absorbers also enable the RX to conduct flat cornering and achieve exceptional responsiveness.
