Unique Design Features of the 2016 Lexus RX

The 2016 Lexus RX has been our top selling vehicle of the year for many great reasons, with its chiseled and bold exterior, highly luxurious and comfortable interior, 3.5L V6 engine capable of 295 horsepower and a fuel rating as good as 8.9 L/100km, it’s no wonder why! Aside from the main reasons many of our happy customers were drawn to the new RX, there are a few little known places where Lexus engineers have put an extra attention to detail that makes the RX stand apart from its market counterparts. Our expert staff at Lexus of Edmonton in Edmonton, AB, have put together a list of a few of these details.

Windshield Wipers Are Thoughtfully Designed

In order to reduce driver stress, the front windshield wipers slow down gradually when switched from a fast setting to a slower one.  When either the front driver door or the front passenger door is open, the windshield wipers stop automatically in order to prevent either the driver or the passenger being sprayed with water.

Adjustable Cup Holders

Each of the front cup holders on the center console is equipped with a height adjustment mechanism.  For tall water bottles or large drinks, the bottom of the cup holder can be adjusted by pressing down on it.  In the case of smaller drinks or canned pop, the bottom of the cup holder can be raised by pressing the “PUSH” button located on the inside of the cup holder.  As a result, the cup holders can fit any size drink without the driver or passenger having to worry about it falling or spilling.

Safer Rear Window Shades

The 2016 RX possesses a distinctive safety feature on its rear windows.  The top hook of the rear window shade faces outward and will automatically release when pushed out.  This even works if the car is submerged underwater and the window must be broken to escape.  It seems a small safety feature, but it could save a life.

Foot Rest Pedal Ensures Driver Comfort

There is a foot rest pedal located in the base of the foot well, designed to bring comfort to the driver’s resting left leg while driving.  By curving slightly, the new foot rest pedal allows the entire leg to relax in a natural position.  The heel is able to rest on the floor while support is applied to the balls of the feet to keep them in a natural position.  These design features ensure relaxation and comfort for the driver even on longer road trips.
