Lexus Launches New RC 200t And Pdated GS And LX

Lexus Australia has continued its dynamic product rollout with the launch of three new models – the new RC 200t, enhanced GS and a substantially updated LX SUV.

Lexus New RC 200t

RC 200t joins the RC coupe line that was launched in Australia 12 months ago.

It is the latest Lexus to feature the potent, in-house developed and built 2.0-litre turbo engine, following NX, IS and RX.

The updated GS midsize sedan includes the new GS 200t model, also powered by the new turbo powerplant.

It replaces the V6-powered GS 250 and joins updated GS 300h, GS 350 and GS 450h in the Lexus Australia line-up.

The new GS Line features a restyled front end, upgraded multimedia technology, the newly available Lexus Safety System+ package, new exterior paint colours, interior trim and ornamentation selections.

The LX 570 features a sweeping upgrade, with only the roof and doors carried over from the previous model.

An aggressive interpretation of the spindle grille headlines the LX exterior styling makeover, while a redesigned luxury interior provides an upscale cabin ambience befitting of Lexus’ flagship SUV.

The interior also features an updated multimedia system with high definition 12.3-inch screen and Remote Touch Interface.

Mechanical and drive experience updates include a new eight-speed transmission, replacing the six-speed unit, as well as the Drive Mode Select system for optimising powertrain and suspension responses.

New 20-inch split 10-spoke wheels and newly available 21-inch 10-spoke wheels provide a commanding road presence.

Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said the new models would enhance and update the Lexus Australia line-up.

“The launch of three new vehicles, including two new turbo variants, provides customers with a wider choice and broadens our presence in important segments,” Mr Hanley said.

“The upgrades to LX 570 are extensive, raising the bar even further for this most impressive of vehicles.

“GS also features a range of important updates and the addition of the GS 200t model will deliver new levels of performance and efficiency in the GS midsize sedan.

“The new RC 200t model is an ideal entry level model in the RC coupe line, delivering outstanding performance,” Mr Hanley added.
