Lexus RX450hL Exterior Design

Lexus is always considered for its design and this RX450hL is no different than the others. While the rest of the car looks pretty much similar to the standard RX450h, it's easy to differentiate the model because of its extended length. The roof also gets a floating design which reduces the visual bulk. However, the front continues to be dominated by the huge spindle grille and a striking three-eye L-shaped LED headlamps with DRL that creates a signature Lexus arrowhead-shaped illumination.

What does the President of the Lexus India says about the RX450hL?

Moreover, the improved technology, design and attractive pricing will surely make RX450hL a desirable car for our discerning guests. We take the introduction of the new RX as our continued commitment to the Indian market and a valued addition to our existing line of offerings.”

Says, PB Venugopal- President, Lexus-India

The RX uses aluminium and high tensile strength steel in its construction, along with spot welds and body adhesives, laser screw welding and more to improve the rigidity of the car.

"All this has improved overall steering response and ride quality. The car comes with Active Cornering Assist (ACA) and new redesigned shock absorbers with new Friction Control Device (FCD), all of which contributes for better cornering and responsiveness."

Says, Lexus.
