LEXUS Australia has expanded its RX mid-size SUV range by adding F Sport and Sports Luxury variants to the base-level RX 200t, joining the 350 and 450h variants in offering all three levels of specification.

At $74,540 before on-roads, the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder 200t Luxury has been bolstered by the addition of the $86,840 F Sport and $92,990 Sports Luxury, which bring extra levels of kit to the large SUV that has now been on sale in Australia for 12 months.

The base Luxury comes equipped with LED headlights, daytime running lights, 20-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, heated and ventilated front seats, 8.0-inch display screen with sat-nav, 12-speaker sound system with digital radio, keyless entry, automatic rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors.

Standard safety features include autonomous emergency braking, active cruise control, lane-keep assist, automatic high beam, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, reversing camera and 10 airbags.

Stepping into the F Sport adds sports seats and pedals, sports-tuned adaptive variable suspension, sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, sports grille and bumpers, unique alloys, 12.3-inch display screen, 15-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, colour head-up display, sequential LED front and rear indicators, smart key card and aluminium film ornamentation.

Upgrading to the top-spec Sports Luxury nets unique alloys with titanium-coloured inserts, 14-way adjustable front seats with memory function, power-folding and heated rear seats, leather and woodgrain steering wheel and aluminium wood ornamentation.

All 200t variants are powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 175kW/370Nm through the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Coinciding with the release of new variants, the F Sport line now also comes with a new Cobalt Blue exterior paint colour.

Lexus has sold 1497 RXs to the end of September this year, a 20 per cent increase over the 1244 units sold over the same period in 2015.

It has easily outsold its main Japanese luxury mid-size SUV rival, the ageing Infiniti QX70, which has found 125 homes this year, but it trails European offerings such as the Mercedes-Benz GLC (3659), the BMW X3 (3022) and Audi Q5 (2540).

It is on track to sell just under 2000 units by the end of the year, which would make it the best sales year for the RX since 2013 where it managed 2188 sales.
