authorBy Avinaba

The fifth-generation RX is Lexus' most important model, and it will debut for the 2023 model year. For context, it's the most popular Lexus vehicle and the most popular luxury SUV on the market.

The Lexus RZ, the Japanese luxury automaker's first-ever all-electric vehicle, is also unveiled. As if that weren't enough. By 2030, Lexus plans to offer an all-electric version of every model, and by 2035, it wants to be an all-electric vehicle (EV) firm.

    Additionally, it comes included with parking-assist technology. Along with the aforementioned parking-assist technology, a bespoke drive mode, an adaptive variable suspension, and aluminum trim inside the interior, an F Sport Handling package also makes its debut.

  • For 2023, the midsize Lexus RX SUV will be in its fifth generation.

The latter two have automatic all-wheel drive (AWD) as standard, whereas the first two have front-wheel drive (FWD) as standard.

    Lexus also improves steering response and increases body rigidity by adding more spot welds to the structure. While the F Sport Design option adds darker alloys, a grille, a roof, roof rails, and a sunroof, the new F Sport Handling kit adds adaptive suspension dampers to smooth out the ride. Last but not least, Lexus switches out the finicky touchpad for a standard or optional 12.3-inch touchscreen that includes wireless smartphone projection and charging.
