LEXUS IRELAND HAS announced Irish prices for its first-ever seven-seater, the RX 450hL. The car will be available in Ireland from this month, starting from €82,450.

The new model was revealed the the Detroit Motor Show earlier this year and is 110mm longer than the regular RX 450h on which it is based. That stretch accommodates the extra row of seats and the rear of the car is also taller to make room for the rearmost passengers.

The third-row seats feature electric folding in combination with individual air conditioning as standard. For added flexibility the second row of seats slide an additional 30mm to 150mm, depending on passenger needs.

The luxury seven-seat hybrid also comes with all-wheel drive and is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine assisted by an electric motor. It is paired with a CVT gearbox.

The RX 450hL is offered in two well-specced trim levels, ‘Luxury’ and ‘Premium’.

Luxury models feature 20-inch wheels, parking sensors, a power tailgate, the Lexus Safety System (which incorporates autonomous emergency braking), three-zone climate control, leather upholstery, electric, heated and ventilated front seats, a ‘Lexus Premium’ navigation system, a 12-speaker Pioneer stereo, and a 12.3-inch screen infotainment system. Luxury models are priced from €82,450.

Premium models feature a different kind of 20-inch wheels, adaptive suspension, a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats, semi-aniline leather, a 15-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, a heads-up display, adaptive high-beam headlights, wood inlays, and sunshades for the rear windows. Premium models are priced from €92,550.

Speaking about the launch of the RX 450hL, Ian Corbett, Head of Lexus Ireland said:

The RX 450hL is perfect for families who want a premium self-charging hybrid but who require that third-row seating for children and room in the boot for luggage and all that comes with a bigger family. The RX 450hL has a range of unique advantages to enhance the comfort of seven passengers as well as our latest Lexus Safety System technology which has a 5 star Euro NCAP rating.

The Lexus RX 450hL is available to order now.
