The 2023 Lexus RX gets a more evolved design which gives it a sportier and more aggressive stance. The front grille gets Lexus’ new spindle design, which looks more prominent and a lot different. Some of the new RX’s design highlights include sculpted bonnet, massive air dams and the sloping roofline, while its sleek LED DRLs and massive connected LED tail lamps do complement the design. 

The new RX sits on a modified version of the GA-K platform, which is also seen on the smaller ES and NX models. The crossover is now 25mm wider and sits on a 60mm longer wheelbase. While the length remains the same as the predecessor, the height has been slightly decreased by 10mm.

Sit inside and you’ll be greeted by a completely redesigned and a classier cabin. The dashboard gets an all-black theme with hints of dark chrome inserts. The 2023 Lexus RX gets a bigger and wider touchscreen with touch-based climate control, a panoramic roof, a digital driver display, and a new steering wheel. 

The new RX’s feature highlights include a 14-inch touchscreen infotainment, triple-zone climate control, powered, heated, and cooled seats, and head-up display. On the safety front, it’s equipped with the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 (ADAS), which includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, intersection support, adaptive cruise control with curve speed management, lane-keep assist, and an advanced automatic parking system.

We’re expecting the new RX to be sold in India sometime in 2023. It’s expected to be priced upward of Rs 1 crore in India (since it will be imported), and compete against the comparatively lower-priced Mercedes GLE, BMW X5Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 and the Land Rover Discovery.
