GALLERY: Lexus RX is cutting-edge style and sophistication
JUST like a diamond gains its beauty from a combination of angles, lines and facets, so too does the Lexus RX 350 F Sport.
The sharpness of the highly distinctive spindle grille and slim, cat-like headlights is a design that boldly makes its presence known.
But it's not the individual features that make for its compelling and athletic design - it's how these features stand out from one another, yet harmonise, that's the true test of a vehicle's aesthetics.
From the aggressive grille, headlights and daytime running lights, through to the sharply carved body and 20" alloy wheels, Lexus RX 350 F Sport is a striking vehicle that is hard to ignore.
Equally as aggressive in looks as she is in performance, the power and precision continues under the hood with an impressive 60-degree V6, 24-valve double overhead cam with dual VVT-i engine.
Lexus RX 350 F Sports delivers a spine-tingling 221kW of power at 6300rpm and 370Nm of torque at 4600-4700rpm.
F Sport features adaptive variable suspension and 4 Mode Drive Mode Select - Eco, Normal, Sports S and Sport S+ - to let you drive to the conditions of your journey and personality.
Lexus's interior spoils you with luxury and practicality.
Slip behind the steering wheel and you will find such luxury complimented by a range of ergonomic features that help keep a driver both relaxed and yet fully attentive to their task.
Switches are where you need them, the steering wheel fits snugly between your hands, and the power seat maintains your driving position by hugging you firmly yet comfortably.
The interior is spacious thanks to the vehicle's long wheelbase.
Driver and passengers alike enjoy a greater sense of luxury too with leather accented front seats with heating and cooling function.
For sheer practicality, the rear door is power assisted and activated by a sensor in the Lexus emblem.
The F Sport also features a panoramic moon roof and aluminium pedals, steering wheel and gear shifter.
Technology to impress and make life simpler and more connected is what Lexus succeeds in delivering.
The Lexus Remote Touch Controller is like an intuitive computer mouse that allows you to access a range of controls, from audio levels and navigation to climate control, without needing to take your eyes from the road.
Its ergonomic design provides a recess, so
your fingers rest comfortably while operating the device.
The 8" satellite navigation display screen makes for exceptionally easy reading without distracting you from more important priorities such as watching the road.
Audio is crystal clear and exceptionally enjoyable thanks to 12 superb speakers and a premium system.
Safety comes in many forms with the Lexus RX 350 F Sport.
While the pre-collision safety system incorporates a host of features to protect occupants in the case of an accident, the safety of the RX relies as much in avoiding collisions as it does on surviving them.
Lexus's safety system includes a range of features including Active Cruise Control System, Blind Spot Monitor and Vehicle Dynamic Integrated Management System which anticipates whether you might be about to lose traction and co-ordinates a number of other systems to take corrective action.
