The Lexus RX300 and RX350 are once again available in a special Crafted Edition.

They follow an identical template to last year’s Crafted Edition RX crossovers, taking the base Luxury grade and adding more equipment, darkened trim elements, and a free upgrade to Lexus’ Encore Platinum owner benefits program.

Pricing is up by a few hundred dollars compared to the 2021 Crafted Editions, with the RX300 Crafted Edition priced at $77,075 before on-road costs and the RX350 Crafted Edition priced at $86,485 before on-roads.

Both models feature darker trim elements on the grille, bumper and mirror caps, as well as unique 20-inch alloy wheels with F Sport wheel caps.

The RX300 Crafted Edition receives more equipment than last year’s model, gaining features found in the standard RX300 Luxury’s Enhancement Pack.

These include heated and ventilated front seats, and ‘easy access’ and memory functions for the power driver’s seat.

The RX350 Crafted Edition also includes a sunroof, while both models gain a head-up display.

The only interior colourway is two-tone Black and White Ash, with black open-pore walnut-look trim on the centre console, doors and steering wheel.

The included three-year subscription to Lexus Encore Platinum allows you to access the Lexus On Demand program, where you can borrow another Lexus up to four times per year for up to eight days at a time.

This allows RX Crafted Edition owners to get behind the wheel of flagship Lexus models like the LC, LS and LX, as well as the new electric UX300e and plug-in hybrid NX450h+.

The Encore Platinum program also allows you to book your Lexus for collection at Qantas valet at various major city airports in Australia and New Zealand, as well as other ownership perks like track events and golf days.
