For the first time in Lexus history, Lexus is offering the full 2013 RX model range with another variant: an F-Sport package. Sitting beside the new RX F-Sport in the Lexus stand at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show was the new RX 450h F-Sport, along with both of their standard models. As is typical of any vehicle carrying the stylish F-Sport package, the RX 450h F-Sport gets enhanced dynamics and sporting character to try and attract more buyers.

The new F-Sport package adds a new front bumper with a bigger lower section, an aerodynamic spoiler for improved high speed stability, and F-Sport upper and lower grilles to the hybrid SUV. It also comes standard with an exclusive set of 19" shaded alloy wheels and a front wing with F-Sport badging.

The interior gets black, smooth leather upholstery with white grey perforations and contrast stitching, steel silver painted trim inserts, and a black ceiling. For the performance upgrades, Lexus has added a lateral performance damper system, which is designed to absorb and minimize undesirable body vibrations. This system features a front performance damper connecting the left and right front suspension towers, and a rear damper connecting the left and right sides of the rear lower back panel.

It’s very different from their standards. It has deviated from their usual styling.

It is truly elegant for an SUV! The feature is highly impressive.

I love its classy simple style. The combination of the colors black and silver automatically signifies elegance to me.

That actually sounds very good, but why didn’t they state the figures? We need to know; to me, the exterior isn’t all appealing so it’s a nice idea that their asset is the enhancement of its dynamics.

We all know that Lexus is known for quality sedans. However, by viewing their RX 450h F Sport, it’s like you’re looking at a common car.
