Lexus has updated the specification offered on its CT, RX and LX models. Take a quick look at what’s changed…
A CT200h with the new Mercury Grey bi-tone paint finish.
The Lexus CT200h hybrid now offers 4 new bi-tone colour schemes where the roof and pillars get a gloss black treatment while customers can choose between four body colours including White Quartz, Sonic Titanium, Mercury Grey and Morello Red.
If you don’t want to go with a bi-tone scheme, you can opt for the newly added monotone Amber colour, which now replaces the previous Fire Agate.
The CT200h also benefits from a new digital media holder found on the centre console and easily accommodates portable music devices, which are linked up via USB, AUX or Bluetooth.

The update to the RX is limited to the interior features of the flagship model.
The RX was introduced earlier this year and the range-topping RX450h SE now gains added convenience features. New additions to this RX derivative include electric adjustment for the second row of seats, as well as seat heaters.
The RX450h now features a Panoramic View Monitor that exhibits a wider field of vision, offers improved visibility and added convenience.

Lexus now offers a pre-safe electronic safety system on its flagship LX SUV. The system utilises sensors to scan the road ahead for obstacles in the vehicle's path of travel and also monitors following distances (it will warn the driver of potential hazards). The system can also intervene by increasing brake pressure, closing windows and altering vehicle dynamics to prevent a collision.
Adaptive cruise control, which allows the driver to maintain a safe following distance by adjusting the speed of the vehicle according to the driving situation, is now standard, as is Lane Keep Assist and a new adaptive high-beam system with sequential indicator illumination is part of the LX package.
Two LX models are: the 270 kW/530 Nm LX 570 powered with a 5.7-litre V8 engine and the 195 kW/650 Nm LX450d fitted with a 4.5-litre turbodiesel engine.
