New RX model was awarded five-star rating in the Euro NCAP. The outcome also marks the highest test score for pedestrian protection yet established by any SUV. The impact test marked maximum points score for leg and pelvic region protection and a big result for head protection.
The safety package that the SUV features includes the Lexus Safety System+ (coming as standard for all models) and the Pre-Crash Safety system with a pedestrian detection function. Using any speed range, the RX will recognise the risk of a collision with a pedestrian in its path, alert the driver and prepare the brakes to deliver maximum stopping power. If the driver won’t be able to take action, autonomous emergency braking will be activated. The Lexus Safety System+ also comes with: Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert/Lane Keep Assist, Road Sign Assist and Automatic High Beam.
As standard, the SUV model offers a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor, giving you an all-around view of the car’s surroundings and nearby vehicles and hazards.
And let’s not forget about the bodyshell. Made out of strong but lightweight high-tensile steel, the material is effective in absorbing impact forces and channelling them away from the cabin.
