Incorporating the latest Lexus design and technology advancements, with a strong focus on providing customers with enhanced efficiency and performance, the all-new RX offers turbo hybrid electric powertrains and a new all-wheel drive system, making it the ideal choice for those seeking luxury and practicality in one sleek package. The new RX will be available exclusively in electrified hybrid options, with the RX 350h featuring a 2.5L petrol hybrid powertrain, E-Four all-wheel drive system, and three specification levels: RX 350h, Limited, and Limited with an Enhancement Pack.

However, the real game-changer in this lineup is the RX 500h F SPORT Performance, which combines a turbocharged 2.4L engine, six-speed automatic transmission, DIRECT4 AWD system, and an upgraded hybrid system to produce a whopping 273kW total system output. "Since the pioneering RX arrived in New Zealand in 2003, it has become a Lexus bestseller. The 2023 Lexus RX is a completely reinvented model that opens a major new chapter in the evolution of this iconic SUV. The RX350h picks up from and extends the driving and luxury experience of the previous RX 450h, while the RX 500h charges into completely new territory, offering the power and handling of a turbocharged engine matched to our latest hybrid and all-wheel drive technology." - Lexus Vice President, Andrew Davis.

For car shoppers looking for more of an aesthetically pleasing option, the RX is the model for you. Featuring the unique “spindle body,” the RX 350h already boasts a high degree of luxury and premium materials that have come to embody the Lexus experience, but the Limited and Limited Enhancement Pack options take it to the next level. The Limited adds 21-inch dark metallic alloy wheels, world-first Bladescan adaptive high-beam headlights, a Qi wireless device charger, and adaptive variable suspension. While the Limited Enhancement Pack includes advanced features such as the Lexus TeamMate advanced parking system, digital rearview mirror, and a panoramic roof. All of these features come together to create a Hybrid electric SUV that embodies the perfect balance of performance, luxury, and practicality, making it a must-see for anyone contemplating a new vehicle purchase in 2023.
