Image gallery: Lexus RX 450h F Sport first drive review

09 May 2017 / 0

Lexus recently set up shop in India with three models. This one, the RX 450h, is the brand’s flagship hybrid car, and sits below the Lexus LX 450d SUV. The Lexus RX 450h is crossover and is available in two variants – Luxury and F Sport. The Luxury variant costs Rs 1.07 crore (ex-Delhi), while the F Sport is around Rs 2 lakh more. We were at the first drive event in Ootacamund, and drove the Lexus RX 450h F Sport, and here are our images from there.

Like with all of the brand's latest cars, the Lexus RX 450h features a very aggressive design theme

Lexus RX450h (22)

The Lexus RX 450h gets sensible 18-inch wheels with high-profile 235/65-section tyres. This decision was carefully taken for our market conditions

The large, sharp LED tail lights are quite striking to look at

Lexus’ signature spindle grille is a very in-your-face design element. It certainly does catch one’s attention

 

Lexus RX450h (6)

The Lexus RX 450h features very sharp and angular design elements all around. The fog lamp housing is just one such example

 

Lexus RX450h (7)

There is just the right amount of chrome trims all around the Lexus RX 450h. This means it’s neither gaudy, nor understated

 

Lexus RX450h (11)

The Lexus RX 450h’s 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, along with an electric motor, makes 310PS

The Lexus RX 450h’s cabin is made of top-notch materials. The top-spec F Sport trim, which you see here, features paddle shifters, sportier seats and a few extra garnishes over the standard Luxury trim

The door pockets on the Lexus RX 450h aren’t fixed, which means fitting oddly shaped bottles is easier

The elegant, dark rose colour scheme is available only on the top-spec Lexus RX 450h F Sport

The centre console is far from being boring. The various shapes and design elements make the cabin a very nice place to be in

 

Lexus RX450h (4)

The infotainment system’s UI is fairly easy to use, but the controller is very sensitive and hard to use on bumpy roads. The highlight, though, is the lovely 15-speaker Mark Levinson system

 

Lexus RX450h (2)

The Lexus RX 450h gets five preset drive modes – Eco, EV, Normal, Sport and Sport+. There is also an Individual mode
