Wondering what Lexus has to offer us? Instead of the 20-inch alloy wheels available internationally, the models of the cars will get 18-inch alloy wheels so as to improve the quality of the drive on the roads. These cars will be imported from Japan through CBU route and assemble somewhere in the country in the coming years.
The first Indian showroom will be inaugurated at The Taj Santacruz Hotel, Mumbai, near the domestic airport.
The fourth generation Lexus RX series is a very famous model internationally. Exhibiting their love for stunning supercars, they now introduce the all new RX 450h, the most honed Lexus ever to leave your outline studios, including hybrid power and an unmatched level of modern extravagance as standard.
The spearheading RX 450h consolidates a 3.5-litre V6 petrol motor with two electric engines, transferring consistent energy to all the four wheels.

The engine also reaches a combined power of 308hp (230kW). According to the sources, the ex-showroom price for this model will be Rs. 1.17 crore.
This model suits the best to those people who seek relaxation while commuting rather than for those who like to have a sporty driving experience.
