Lexus to introduce the entry-level RX270 in Australia

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 2, 2012

The Lexus RX270 is entering new markets, making the luxury brand easier to afford in the crossover segment. However, don’t rush to locate your nearest dealer just yet. Lexus Australia said that it will add a new, entry-level RX270 to its SUV lineup, with the help of a 2.7-liter, four-cylinder gas engine with 185-hp. This model has a lower price point, but is more fuel efficient RX model that will be offered in just two-wheel drive.

It’s believed that the RX270 will have a price tag of about US$70,000 – about $69,000 US. If that sounds mighty expensive for an entry-level RX, it is compared to the market. It should be emphasized though that the RX350, which costs $82,814, is Australian.

About 300 lbs of the weight is dropped compared to the RX350 model by designing the RX270 to be two-wheel drive only. The F Sport variants of the RX model will also appear with the new, third-generation RX. These would be offered in Australia. Lexus has yet to confirm speculations that it will produce a cheaper and more frugal RX270 in this country.
