Lexus is preparing for busy days at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, where the fourth generation RX will make its European debut alongside several other new models.
First introduced at this year’s NY Auto Show, the RX SUV brings an amalgamation of sharp, striking lines with curves that represents the brand’s current design language. The vehicle will most likely be showcased in the form of the RX 450h hybrid alongside the RX 200t.
Lexus says the RX is the best-selling model in its 26-year history. With a sales of around 2.2 million units since its inception in 1998, the SUV represents three out of ten vehicles ever sold by the company.
Also set to make its first presence on the European soil is the new GS 200t (pictured), which comes with a redesigned front end with bi-LED headlights and a lively 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol engine under the hood.
Lastly, Lexus will introduce a new Sport grade for the CT hatchback and IS sedan. The package will be available in the continent from September.

Brussels, Belgium – The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show will showcase the European Premiere of the fourth generation RX. As the best-selling model in the brand’s 26-year history—with sales of circa 2.2 million units—the RX represents three out of ten vehicles ever sold by Lexus.
The all-new RX’s mix of sharp creases and curves represents a bold evolution in the model’s styling, sharing the same design DNA with other recently-launched models in the Lexus line-up.
The RX interior reflects an impeccable balance of functionality and luxury. The redesigned interior offers a sense of spaciousness with intimacy that proves ideal for driver and passenger comfort alike.
Moreover, the RX is equipped with advanced redesigned hybrid and petrol powertrains, sophisticated safety technologies/driver aids that include the innovative Lexus Safety System+, and new convenience and technology features to make this the best Lexus sport-utility vehicle offering to date.
An important addition to the GS line-up, the GS 200t, will also make its European premiere. The new-comer is equipped with a smooth 2.0l turbo petrol engine teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Also new on the GS range, is the redesigned front end with standard Bi-LED headlamps.
Finally, new bespoke, stylish design features will underline the sporty character of the CT and IS. This is thanks to a new accessible Sport grade, available in Europe as from September and on display during the show.
