The Lexus RX is the very first luxury crossover SUV to proudly wear the badge of this Japanese marque. As soon as it debuted in 1998, the RX immediately laid the foundation for what would be a highly successful nameplate. Up till this day, the RX is Lexus’ most popular model sold in the country and it isn’t surprising considering how the model has evolved, not just in appearance, but in build quality, technology, and practicality.
The RX fits right into an active lifestyle with a sophisticated blend of the comfort of a luxury car and the driving pleasure and added convenience of a high-riding SUV. It asserts its presence on a variety of roads and diverse driving conditions.
This month, Lexus enthusiasts can take take their pick from the entire lineup of Lexus RX models, with special offers exclusive this September.

It asserts its presence on a variety of roads and diverse driving conditions. Under its hood is a 3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Keeping things in control is Adaptive Variable Suspension which continually adjusts shock absorber damping rates in realtime. Not only does this inspire driver confidence, it also keeps the ride buttery smooth–as expected from a Lexus.
The RX 350 F Sport (P4,998,000) is a package that was created so that drivers can enjoy the essence of ‘F’ driving–the epitome of which is the LFA supercar. Naturally, the RX F Sport shares the same spirit and enhances the sporty driving experience with a few key features. Inside are unique F Sport dials with full-length illuminated needles that add an element of excitement. The cabin is decked out in dimpled leather with an exclusive perforated finish on the steering wheel and shift knob. And then there are the aluminum pedals, exclusive to F Sport models.
The RX 450h (P5,238,000) features Lexus Hybrid Drive which draws power from both electric and petrol motors, resulting in instant torque and rapid acceleration. There is also an EV drive mode at slow speeds for a silent and emission-free drive. RX 450h’s self-charging full hybrid system features a 3.5-liter direct injection V6 petrol engine. The total system output (engine and electric motor combined) amounts to 308hp. The key components and control systems in the Lexus Hybrid Drive System were improved and re-engineered to deliver class-leading fuel economy, minimal emissions and excellent on-road performance.
The RX 350L (P4,918,000) is a seven-seat variant. For those in need of added space without compromising any of the luxury convenience features, look no further than this. Third-row seating is a luxury in itself–a practical feature that you never knew was essential until you needed the added space for passengers and cargo. The third-row has an automatic slide function and can be easily adjusted to achieve the optimal amount of legroom. Third-row passengers also have their own climate controls.
