Aimed for the outdoorsy types, a special Lifestyle version of Lexus’ RX full hybrid SUV has just been released in the U.K. The Lifestyle model features a series of practical accessories that are perfect for the winter season. The exterior of the new Lifestyle model features roof rails, a rear bumper protection, as well as front and rear under-run plates.
Its interior includes a rigid boot liner, which can handle muddy boots, and a refrigerated cool box that can be used to keep food and drinks warm.
Lexus asserted that to get these features on the new RX 450h SE-I Lifestyle, buyers only have to pay GBP499 more to the on-the-road price, which is from GBP48,899. But when these features are computed individually and then summed up, the total would be GBP1,500.
The Lexus RX 450h is offered in the UK in four model grades: the SE, SE-I, SE-L and SE-L Premier. The entry-level SE version features leather upholstery, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, 18-inch alloy wheels, 10 airbags, HID headlamps, rear parking monitor and automatic windscreen wipers.
Meanwhile, the SE-I models will get added features such as the Remote Touch control, electrically operated tailgate, front and rear parking sensors, Lexus Navigation System, 12-speaker audio system and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Buyers can choose from the following options: a sunroof, premium ICE package, DAB audio and interior wood inserts.
The SE-L variant is equipped with air suspension, semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, LED headlamps, illuminated front scuff plates, smart keyless entry and push-button start, side view camera, 15-speaker Mark Levinson audio with six-DVD changer and DAB module for digital radio reception. And its options list includes the Wood Package, sunroof and premium ICE.
