Lexus Bahrain Launches 2020 RX and GX Models

Ebrahim K. Kanoo, the sole distributor of Lexus vehicles in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has launched the 2020 Lexus RX and GX models at the Lexus showroom in Sitra. The new models have had a range of interior and exterior enhancements, reinvigorating their design and function elements that are designed to surpass expectations of the most discerning clientele.

First launched in 1998, the Lexus RX has set the standard in the luxury crossover utility vehicles segment ever since. The 1998 Lexus RX 300 was the world’s first luxury crossover, while the 2006 Lexus RX 400h was the world’s first hybrid electric luxury crossover. The 2020 RX features a sleek new exterior for a sporty and powerful feel. The character line that runs from the front to the rear has been improved, adding an exceptional flow and consistency to the overall appearance that emphasizes Lexus’ new design language.

The 2020 GX 460, likewise, features a refreshed look and feel as the brand’s accomplished sport-utility vehicle. Its redesigned fascia now incorporates the newest interpretation of the brand’s grille motif, along with standard premium triple beam LED headlamps. The side molding has been removed, while the rear liftgate dons a simpler “L” badge and satin license plate garnish.

Ebrahim K. Kanoo Senior Manager of Lexus Marketing, Ayman Shehadeh commented, “The Lexus RX and GX models have always been extremely popular luxury SUVs in Bahrain, and we are thrilled to launch the 2020 models. The new models reinforce Lexus’s ongoing drive to create amazing experiences for both owners and passengers by developing vehicles that are engaging, beautiful and innovative”.

The 2020 Lexus RX model also comes in a hybrid variant further highlighting the company’s commitment to create environmentally-friendly vehicles that encourage sustainable mobility through cutting-edge technology. Both models are also highly capable vehicles due to enhanced technology and stability elements.

The new Lexus RX is available with a choice of two powertrains. The RX 350 model with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine produces 296 hp and 370 Nm of torque, and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The RX 450h (Hybrid) variant is equipped with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and two electric motors with a combined system output of 308 hp. The class-leading hybrid electric model enables customers to enjoy increased driving satisfaction and acceleration smoothness even as they contribute to a sustainable future.

The new Lexus GX is available in a standard 301 hp 4.6-litre V-8 engine producing 438Nm. Its 2948 kg towing capacity makes GX an ideal hauler. Towing is aided with Trailer Sway Control, a function of the Vehicle Stability Control that enhances straight-line tracking.

The GX’s off-road expertise is blostered with Lexus’ multi-terrain monitor and panoramic view monitors with driver and passenger cameras, crawl control, and multi-terrain Select.

As with any Lexus vehicle, safety is a top priority. Drivers can enjoy complete peace of mind thanks to the Lexus Safety System+, an advanced safety technology package that includes pre-collision system with pedestrian detection during daylight and certain low-light conditions, as well as daytime cyclist detection, all-speed range dynamic radar cruise control, lane tracing alert, and adaptive high-beam system.

The Lexus GX comes in 8 vibrant exterior colours including sonic titanium, White Pearl Crystal Shine, Mercury Gray Mica, black, Satlight Black Glass Flake, Garnet Red Mica, Fire Agate Mica Metallic, and Deep Blue Mica.

The Lexus RX comes in 11 distinctive exterior colors, including the newly-developed terrane khaki mica metallic and ice ecru mica metallic, which evoke an aura of luxury and glamour.
