Lexus Brings Updates to NX, RC and LS

Rc Range 1800x1800

Three models in Lexus’ range have received updates and improvements to their standard specification, in order to provide greater comfort, convenience, style and performance.

The models included in the upgrade roll-out comprise the NX Compact SUV, RC 2+2 Coupe and the LS sedan.

Wireless charging for NX

The NX receives a subtle boost to its spec level with the addition of a wireless cell phone charger for all three grades (E, EX and F Sport). Utilising Qi technology, a compatible smartphone can be recharged wirelessly by placing the device on the charge pad.

The range-topping F Sport model receives Blind Spot Monitoring that also includes Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Turbo power for RC

The RC Sports Coupe line-up has been bolstered with the addition of a derivative powered by the 2-litre turbocharged engine recently introduced in the IS sedan range. The engine makes a decent 180 kW and 350 Nm. This new engine works in tandem with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The model will be badged as the RC 200t.

The RC 350 F Sport will continue to top the range with its V6 naturally aspirated powerplant doing the work under the bonnet.

Enhanced Multi-media for LS

The range topping LS luxury sedan is the final model in the trilogy to receive an update.

The LS's multi-media system has been overhauled, with functionality, ease-of-use and display improvements. The 31cm TFT multi-media system still uses Lexus’ Remote Touch Interface, with ergonomic improvements in the form of dual sided ‘enter’ buttons in addition to a ‘back’ feature.

There is also the ability to display the satellite navigation map across the entire width of the screen, with the option to switch to a 20cm sectioned display, to allow two sets of information on the screen simultaneously.
