The RX Hybrid is the first hybrid vehicle to feature Intelligent Shift Control, a system that can estimate whether you are traveling uphill or downhill and automatically provide the optimal engine response, or you can manually shift for greater responsiveness and maneuverability. The power opening and closing rear door offers easy access to the rear storage area. The rear door can be raised and lowered from inside the vehicle by using a switch or remotely with the SmartAccess fob. The available dual-screen Rear-Seat Entertainment System enables two video sources to be viewed at the same time. Using a single remote control, one can be used, for instance, as a DVD player and the other as a game console or audio player. Wireless headphones are also graciously included, leaving the driver free to enjoy something entirely different: silence.
In addition to remote features and relaxing accessories, the RX is designed to know its driver. Available heated and ventilated front seats can be personalized using three separate settings each for heating and cooling, and the available Lexus Memory System automatically adjusts the power driver’s seat (except lumbar), the outside mirrors and the steering wheel to your personal settings. It's hard to believe so much luxury can come in such a dynamic package. The Lexus RX prides itself on not only impressing you, but all other drivers on the road.
