Lexus ushers in 2007 with a new addition to its RX range, the RX 350 Limited Edition. This special version of Lexus’s luxury SUV benefits from a higher specification at a price that represents exceptional customer value. And, of course, owners are guaranteed Lexus’s class-leading levels of refinement and reliability, together with customer service that is second to none in the industry.

The Limited Edition is positioned in the RX range between the entry-level RX 350 and the RX 350 SE, offering a generous number of extra equipment features. These have a combined value of more than £3,500, but the Limited Edition has an on-the-road price only £2,500 more than the RX 350.

Special features of the Limited Edition include perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats that are eight-way electrically adjustable, a 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat, 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and metallic paint.

These items are in addition to a standard specification that includes cruise control, eight-speaker sound system with in-dash six-CD autochanger, five-speed automatic transmission, leather trimmed steering wheel with audio controls, High Intensity Discharge headlights, rear dark-tinted privacy glass, climate control air conditioning, speed-sensitive power steering and a suite of nine cabin airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag.

The Limited Edition is also available with the option of the Lexus Multimedia system, which comprises DVD satellite navigation with dynamic route guidance; voice controls for audio, communications, ventilation and navigation functions; Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free mobile phone use; a Park Assist Monitor; 11-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system with six-disc DVD autochanger and MP3/WMA compatibility; and an Electro

Multi-Vision screen with touch-screen controls. This option package is not available on the entry-level RX 350 model.

Lexus’s bespoke in-car entertainment package is also available as an option, comprising a DVD player with twin monitors mounted neatly in the back of the front seat head restraints. Rear seat passengers can enjoy movies on the move, CDs, music from MP3 files, or, with the benefit of additional connectors (not supplied by Lexus), computer games. Infra red headsets are provided which allow passengers in the front to continue listening to the vehicle’s audio system undisturbed.

Equipment comparisons between the RX 350 and the RX 350 Limited Edition are detailed in the table below.

Further value is provided by the Limited Edition’s class-leading 16E insurance group.

The RX 350 Limited Edition is available in Platinum Ice, Aleutian Grey and Brechin Slate metallic paint finishes with a choice of Oakham Ivory or Pembroke Black leather interiors. Power is from Lexus’s 272bhp (276 DIN hp) 3.5-litre V6 Dual VVT-i petrol engine, which gives nought to 62mph acceleration in 7.8 seconds and 25.2mpg combined cycle fuel consumption.
