The Lexus RX 300 is to be superceded by the new Lexus RX 350 this spring.

On sale throughout Europe in April, the Lexus RX 350 further refines driving pleasure through the class-leading performance of a new 3.5-litre V6 petrol powerplant.

Equipped with an ultra-smooth, 5-speed automatic transmission, this outstanding powertrain offers increased power and torque (272bhp at 6,200rpm and 342Nm at 4,700rpm) whilst reducing fuel consumption by some eight per cent over the previous RX 300.

Enhanced noise and vibration reduction measures result in even lower noise levels at all vehicle speeds.

The new luxury SUV also features a new Mark Levinson Premium audio system, as well as a new, high-definition and fast response Lexus Navigation System.
