As its name declares, the new RX Premium Sport Edition gives Lexus’s large luxury self-charging hybrid electric SUV stronger, sportier appeal with a series of exclusive design elements, inside and out. It builds on the success of the previous Sport Edition with an enriched specification that adds a distinctive style twist to the RX line-up.

The new version is available both for the five-seat RX and the RX L in six or seven-seat form – the former with two captain’s-style chairs in the second row.

The Premium Sport Edition has a powerful road presence thanks to black-finished details that complement its elegant lines, including the front grille and door mirror covers. These are matched with black sputtered-finish 20-inch alloy wheels and a black front under-guard that emphasises the model’s SUV status.

In the cabin, the signature look for the smooth leather upholstery is a combination of Black and White Ash with contrasting light grey stitching. The same colour theme is applied to the soft-touch surfaces on the centre console, door trims and passenger knee pad, with the grey stitching repeated around the shift lever gaiter. The steering wheel is finished in black leather and Black Open Pore Walnut, matching the cabin’s wood trim inserts, and the door panels have integrated illumination. Customers can also specify Black or Rich Cream leather upholstery if they prefer.

The RX Premium Sport Edition also benefits from a higher equipment specification. Its advanced and high-tech features include a head-up display, heated rear seats*, a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert with auto brake. A panoramic roof is provided on the RX version and a sunroof on the RX L.

This specification is in addition to the established RX Premium Pack, which provides Lexus Safety System+ active safety and driver assistance systems, smooth leather upholstery, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, a hands-free power back door, door mirrors with auto-folding, auto-dimming, reverse-tilt and memory functions and power-adjustable front seats with an auto-retract and memory function for the driver’s seat.,

The new RX Premium Sport Edition is on sale now. On-the road prices are £57,165 for the RX model, £59,105 for the six-seat RX L and £57,855 for the seven-seat RX L.

All new RX models come with up to 10 years’ Lexus Relax warranty cover. After an initial three years/60,000 miles, owners can extend their warranty by a further one year/10,000 miles each time they have their vehicle serviced at an authorised Lexus centre, in line with its service schedule. The warranty is provided at no extra cost, up to a limit of 10 years/100,000 miles. Terms and conditions apply; full details are available at
