All-New 2016 Lexus RX Teased And Confirmed For NY Auto Show

The fourth generation of Lexus’ RX mid-size crossover will have its world debut at the 2015 New York International Auto Show on April 1.

The darkened teaser picture released by Lexus suggests that the 2016 RX will have a more dynamic and angular exterior with stronger and sharper profile lines that carry some of the edgy funkiness of the smaller NX, along with prominent rear fenders and a floating roof design with a signature third rear-window.

At the back, the tail lamps look a lot like those found on the latest GS and IS sedans.

There aren’t any photos of the interior yet, but we suspect the RX to feel like a bigger and more luxurious NX inside, festooned with all sorts of gadgets and electronic features.

Lexus was mum on the powertrain options, though, a V6 in both regular and hybrid guises should be on offer in North America, while there’s also talk about a four-cylinder turbocharged unit for Europe, Japan and other international markets.

We’ll know more in the coming days leading to the opening of the NY Auto Show.
