Lexus has made some subtle revisions to their GS saloon and RX SUV. The new GS sports a wider track, more direct steering and meaner exhaust system. It also gains the eight-speed transmission inspired by the LFA supercar. Standard features include an intelligent climate control system, Lexus Premium Sound, electrically adjustable front seats and steering wheel as well as full leather trim. For the first time the F-Sport exterior kit will also be made available.
Lexus continues to offer the hybrid GS450h, with its 252kW power output. This engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). In 2012, the popular RX range received the new Lexus corporate identity and signature spindle grille. For 2014, the RX has been refreshed even further with a new Appearance Pack that is now standard on the RX 350 EX model. This pack comprises a re-designed bumper with larger air intakes to boost the muscularity of the front view.
Other changes include new 19-inch alloys, as well as LED-type front fog lamps. For the RX 450h SE, the latest upgrade includes the LED interior lighting package as well as the adoption of the Integrated Sport Driving system which enables the driver to tune the Drive Mode Select to Eco, Normal or Sport settings.
Pricing for the GS model ranges between R610 700 to R846 700. And the RX starts at R664 300.
