The luxury crossover others are trying to beat

Lexus continues to pursue perfection in the RX 350 luxury crossover, which is why drivers continue to choose the RX year after year. The 2015 Lexus RX 350, on sale here at Meade Lexus in Southfield, Michigan, keeps the luxury coming with a new standard display audio system with backup camera, an expanded Lexus App Suite with Slacker Radio, and upgraded iHeartRadio 4.0. Dynamic design, impeccable luxury finishes and amenities and a serenely quiet ride are 2015 RX 350 hallmarks.

You’ll see a difference up front, where the 2015 RX 350 (MSRP $40,970) features new LED foglamps on the F SPORT and available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) and LED headlamps for other models. The RX 350 F SPORT also offers new Cabernet leather trim. You’ll see a dash more elegance with the new 19-inch triple-split five-spoke wheels available for the Premium and Luxury packages.

The new display audio system isn’t just about convenience and connectivity. It incorporates a 12-speaker Lexus Premium Audio System that plays music from CDs, iPods®, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (with a 90-day trial subscription) and Bluetooth® audio streaming. Or, for a special treat your ears will want every day, choose the available 330-watt 15-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound system, which delivers concert-quality sound to every seat in the vehicle.

The 270-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine goes about its business smoothly and quietly while delivering a satisfying kick on the road. For a sharper kick, go for the RX 350 F SPORT, which combines exhilarating performance with exclusive design and luxury elements.

Chief among the F SPORT benefits is an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission in place of the standard six-speed automatic. The eight-speed even boosts highway fuel economy. The specially tuned F SPORT suspension, meanwhile, puts a sharp edge on agility without putting a rough edge on ride quality.

As with all F SPORT models, the RX 350 F SPORT wears a special look with its mesh-style spindle grille and bolder front bumper. Luxury, too, is enhanced in the F SPORT thanks to black or Cabernet leather upholstery accented by ebony bird’s-eye maple wood trim and aluminum pedals. Super-soft perforated leather, a power moonroof and more come with the Premium Package, which is standard on the F SPORT and available for the standard RX 350.

The Comfort Package, too, comes with the F SPORT and gives it heated and ventilated front seats HID headlamps and rain-sensing wipers among other amenities.

The F SPORT comes equipped with Active Torque Control All-Weather Drive, which is also available on the standard model.

“More” is a key word attached to the Lexus RX 350. Standard luxury remains high in this, so you start off with 10-way power front seats and the SmartAccess keyless entry system. With the latter, you need only carry the vehicle remote control in a pocket or purse. Simply touch an exterior door handle to unlock or lock the vehicle, and use the push-button to start the vehicle. The system does more, too. Turn off the engine, and the driver’s seat will slide rearward while the standard power tilt/telescoping steering wheel tilts upward and slides forward, making it easier to exit. Both return to their pre-set positions the next time you start the car. The RX 350 caters to your comfort without you needing to do anything more than turn the engine on or off.

If you carry an iPhone®, the RX 350 will even make calls, play music from iTunes or use navigation, all through standard Siri Eyes Free Mode.

The 2015 Lexus RX 350 offers a practical side, too, with 40 cubic feet of carrying space behind the rear seat. Fold the 40/20/40-split rear seatbacks down to double that.

If you’re looking for the ideal luxury crossover, one look at the 2015 Lexus RX 350 will end your search. Come in today for a test drive.

2015 Lexus RC 350 first drive

 

capture

The 2015 Lexus RC 350 is the brand’s first pure coupe in 15 years.

RC stands for Radical Coupe, according to Lexus. Marketing chief Brian Smith says the so-called premium coupe segment is “the place for a loud statement.” The biggest noise will come from the track-tuned RC F.

Lexus returns late to the booming market for compact, luxury brand coupes. Its last fixed-roof coupe in North America–the original SC 300/400–ceased production in 2000. The closest models since have had retractable metal roofs—the SC 430, which disappeared in 2009, and the current, sedan-based IS C. Competition for the new RC 350 is clearly defined: the Audi A5/S5, BMW 4 Series and Cadillac ATS, Mercedes C-Class and Infiniti Q60 coupes.

Lexus CT 200h Named Favorite Hybrid by Northwest Automotive Press Association

LOM 2014 CT200h

Stylish Exterior Design and Efficient Hybrid Engine Make the 2014 CT 200h a Favorite at Drive Revolution Event

With a fun and stylish exterior and a remarkable EPA-estimated 42 mpg combined fuel economy rating, it’s no surprise that the 2014 Lexus CT 200h was named Favorite Hybrid at the Northwest Automotive Press Association’s (NWAPA) Drive Revolution event last week in Portland.

During NWAPA’s annual summer event, journalists gathered to assess the green vehicle market, learn and engage about upcoming technology and to share what’s worked in the Pacific Northwest with the rest of the nation. The two-day event featured vehicle presentations and a focused media ride-and-drive session for journalists to experience driving each vehicle as well as learn each unique technology.

The CT 200h was chosen for its impressive combination of state-of-the-art small car luxury and hybrid technology, according to NWAPA President Nik Miles.

“With six hybrid vehicles in our Lexus lineup, the most of any luxury brand, we are naturally thrilled to be recognized with this honor from NWAPA,” said Michael Bevan, General Manager, Lexus Western Area. “We appreciate that drivers in the Pacific Northwest want a compact luxury vehicle that is both fun to drive and highly efficient – the CT 200h really delivers on all fronts.”

Arriving soon at Lexus of Melbourne, the All-New Lexus NX Compact Luxury-Utility Combines Breakthrough Design and Choice of Turbo or Hybrid Power

Capture

Lexus created the luxury-utility crossover category with the original midsized RX model in 1998 and is now poised to disrupt the growing compact segment with the all-new 2015 NX. Inspired by performance vehicles, the 2015 NX unites the engineering input of racers with the impeccable touch of Lexus luxury in a design that steals the show.

Following in the tire tracks of the new-generation Lexus GS and IS sedans, the 2015 NX brings dramatic design to a segment populated by boxy offerings. The boldest interpretation yet of the signature Lexus spindle grille and L-finesse design envelops a platform engineered by a team that includes active racers.

The 2015 Lexus NX debuting soon at Lexus of Melbourne comes in two versions, the NX 200t with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the NX 300h hybrid, which brings the brand’s number of hybrid offerings to six, the most among luxury brands. The hybrid offers a real driving kick, thanks to a new transmission with a kick-down function. The racers on the team insisted on splitting the hybrid battery into two separate pods for better weight distribution; with the benefit of more efficient use of cabin space.

Both NX models offer their own version of pro-active all-weather drive (AWD).

Looking more sports-car than sport-utility, the 2015 NX’s cabin is bristling with new, onboard, standard and available technology, including a Lexus-first Wireless Charging Tray for compatible phones and devices; the new Lexus Remote Touch Interface (RTI) with a touch pad; and a comprehensive Multi-information Display that features a Lexus-first G-Force meter and boost gauge.
