Lexus has launched the RX 450hL in India priced at ₹99 lakhs ex-showroom, New Delhi. This is the fourth generation of the Lexus RX 450h globally. The handsome looking premium Japanese SUV now gets a extra third-row seating and a host of other latest features loaded on to it.
Powering the Lexus RX 450 hL is the BS-VI compliant 3.5-litre V6 Dual VVT-i engine that is coupled with a self-charging hybrid unit. This engine is fed via the advanced D-4S fuel injection system that is said to deliver impressive performance along with good drivability, excellent fuel efficiency combined with reduced emissions.
In terms of exterior design, the new Lexus RX 450hL comes with character body lines that run across the SUV offering a muscular look. The SUV also comes with new design L-shaped LED lamps and integrated LED DRL with the patent Lexus styled arrowhead glow on them. LED lamps get neatly integrated into the front bumper that helps to reduce the power consumption and in turn provide a bright beam. Lexus claims this aids in excellent bright visibility for safe driving during pitch dark night driving conditions. The Premium SUV also comes with updated suspension setup along with increased body rigidity as compared to the older versions.
In terms of interiors the Lexus RX 450hL comes with all new touch-display that comes loaded with Lexus remote touch interface powering it. Also included is a new phone holder and USB port along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity with cloud connectivity.

The improved technology, design, and attractive pricing will surely make RX 450hL a desirable car for our discerning guests. We take the introduction of the new RX as our continued commitment to the Indian market and valued addition to our existing line of offerings.”
