    About the Lexus RX

    The 2023 Lexus RX will launches in Australia with a wide range of variants including turbocharged, hybrid and turbocharged hybrid powertrains – but no plug-in hybrid.

    Prices range from $87,500 before on-road costs for the front-wheel drive RX350h Luxury to $126,000 before on-roads for the flagship all-wheel drive RX500h F Sport Performance.

    Gone is the old V6 engine, with the RX350 nameplate now applied to a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder model.

    There’s no extended, three-row L body style, with reports Lexus will introduce a new three-row crossover.

    A plug-in hybrid RX450h+ joins the range elsewhere but won’t be offered here at launch. It is, however, understood to be under evaluation for Australia.

    The RX range opens $15,000 higher than the outgoing model, though the previous base turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine has been axed.

    In addition to familiar Luxury, F Sport and Sports Luxury trims, there’s a new fully-loaded F Sport Performance flagship.

    Available only in RX500h guise with a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder hybrid, this variant features a ‘high-output’ eAxle rear electric motor, a DIRECT4 all-wheel drive system and rear-axle steering.

    The 2023 RX is based on the company’s GA-K platform, also referred to as TNGA-K, which also underpins the Lexus NXLexus ESToyota KlugerToyota RAV4, and Toyota Camry, among others.
