2010 Lexus RX SUV Photographed Undisguised
The new Lexus RX is proving to be one of the worst kept secrets of the automotive-industry this year. In less than two weeks time after the vehicle's official brochure was leaked a new set of photos that appear to have been shot with a camera phone made their way into the web-o-sphere. On the outside, the Japanese firm's new proposal in the luxury SUV segment sports a sort of blink-and-miss-it evolutionary styling. The interior however is another story as it has been completely revised featuring a more contemporary design. There's also talk about a 7-passenger, long-wheelbase version but this is something has not been officially confirmed.
Tech details are also thin on the ground, but the Japanese-market brochure makes word of the RX350 and the RX450h meaning that the latter may get a more powerful V6-hybrid drivetrain than the current RX400h.
According to our sources, the third-generation Lexus RX will break cover at the forthcoming Los Angeles Auto Show on 21 November with sales set to commence in the first half of 2009.
