But enough about the technicalities. This is a Lexus, so it needs to have a sumptuous, tech-filled cabin if it wants to succeed. Climb aboard and you’ll be greeted by a gorgeous, avant-garde design. Lexus says it has redesigned several controls to be less distracting which is reflected in the minimalist, functional layout of the dashboard.
There are a host of standard features available (including a 14-inch touchscreen with Lexus Interface) but buyers will also be able to choose from a bevy of optional extras. The RX can be kitted out with a panoramic sunroof, head-up display, and as many as six interior color schemes and four trims.
The RX 500h builds on this with unique F Sport details; a perforated leather steering wheel comes with sporty paddle shifters, F Sport scuff plates, aluminum pedals, suede door trims, and, of course, leather upholstery.
