Lexus RX 450H 2013 Car Walls

During this year's Geneva Auto Show Lexus revealed the 2013 RX 450H, the latest generation of the RX 450H family, featuring lots of improvements not only in terms of performance but -as expected- in terms of exterior and interior design as well.
The performances have been slightly improved mainly due to the addition of a Sport mode to the Lexus Hybrid Drive system which now complements the other three modes already existent: Normal, Eco and EV, the last one being the "all-electric" mode.
The new "Sport" drive mode turns the Lexus RX 450H into a more dynamic and aggressive SUV, by modifying the electric power steering system and throttle response, and also lowering the restrictions regarding the Vehicle Stability control and Traction control. In other words, the Sport mode will turn the Lexus RX 450H into a more fun to drive SUV, and a pretty nifty feature inside the RX 450H is that when the Sport mode is active the instrument panel lighting will turn red. Sport mode can be enabled from a set of controls placed directly on the steering wheel, but the Lexus RX 450H it will automatically switch to EV mode whenever the speed is below 31 mph.
However, the engines is basically the same as before, a 3.5 liter Atkinson-cycle V6 coupled with two electric motors, a package that will manage to develop roughly 295 horsepower.
As mentioned before, the exterior of the Lexus RX 450H has also been redesigned and it now offers a more aggressive overall look. The front bumper features a larger grille, the position of the headlamps has been slightly modified and are now featuring clear lens and integrated LED daytime running lights.
Furthermore, the Lexus RX 450H will also come in the F Sport Grande variant which will pack an even more aggressive and distinctive look, sporting an full-width spoiler incorporated in the lower-front bumper, fog lights and a special F Sport mesh design on the upper and lower grilles. For a clearer differentiation between the F Sport Grande and the base model, the F Sport received a new set of 19-inch wheels and some wing badges on the outside, whilst on the interior the F Sport will feature a black and white-grey leather color scheme, steel-silver-color trims and a black roof lining.
As for electronics and entertainment, the Lexus RX 450H will feature a 12-speaker audio system for the standard version, or a 15 speaker Mark Levinson system as an optional extra. In addition, a hard-drive-based navigation system will enable Facebook connectivity, Pandora, Web radio and more.
As for availability, the Lexus RX 450H is set to be launched on the automotive market sometime this summer, wearing a starting price tag of $40,000.
