Lexus has gone beyond 'Luxury' on the RX450h to add a new Advance model to its prestige full hybrid SUV range in the U.K.

11 Nov 2013 | International News : U.K.

The specification also includes new seven-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels and the choice of either a fixed panoramic roof or an electric sunroof
The Advance takes the established Luxury grade features and adds a full complement of styling features. A new, deep front bumper increases the sense of the car being firmly planted on the road, with LED headlight units amplifying the effect. 

The lights further benefit from Lexus's I-AFS auto-adaptive system, moving in line with the steering to give better illumination at junctions and through bends.

In other respects the new model delivers the same high quality, innovation and supremely refined and efficient performance that define the RX. The standard equipment list presents an impressive array of features, including Smart Entry and Start, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery and automatic windscreen wipers among others.

On-board connectivity and infotainment are fully covered by the Lexus Premium Navigation system, 12-speaker audio pack, DVD player and DAB tuner. The system also provides a rear-view camera and Bluetooth for hands-free calls and audio streaming.

The RX 450h's full hybrid powertrain delivers through a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and a powerful electric motor for a maximum 295bhp, enabling nought to 100km/h acceleration in less than eight seconds. Thanks to a second electric motor on the rear axle, the system can automatically deliver all-wheel drive performance when conditions require extra grip.

Lexus's continuous improvement of its hybrid technology has secured impressive fuel economy and low emissions of 19.0km/L and 145g/km respectively.
