Al-Futtaim Motors launches the New Lexus LX
Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Lexus in the UAE, announced the
launch of the new 2012 LX which will premier the world's first Overturn Assist
The LX is also the first Lexus model to unfurl eloquence in the form of a strikingly
sculpted spindle grille, the signature front fascia that heralds the new face
of Lexus. Also making its debut in the LX is the HDD navigation system which
features a touch-sensitive screen for imputing information, as well as an advanced
voice-command system that allows the driver to search for destinations.
Overturn Assist is the technologically advanced system designed to enhance
small radius turning performance in tight corners. The 2012 model includes Crawl
Control that pre-sets speed to further assist the driver on difficult terrains
and a multi-terrain support feature which optimally distributes power to the
four wheels based on road conditions. It's powered by a 5.7-litre V8, producing
362 horsepower. It's what this LX is all about - allowing drivers to explore
their environmental preference in comfort and style.
"Lexus has always wowed the automotive world with advanced technology
to enhance the driving feel of our vehicles. The 2012 LX has done it again:
the first ever Overturn Assist function is a testament to that fact," said
Saud Abbasi, General Manager, Al Futtaim Motors - Lexus.
"The 2012 LX will also offer endless possibilities of experiencing well
defined luxury that is bound only by your imagination. It adds just about every
luxury convenience and features you desire: a combination of luxury, off-road
prowess, impeccable quality and sheer style. There are few better luxury SUVs
than the 2012 Lexus LX," he added.
To further enhance the design of the new spindle grille, high intensity headlights
and daytime running lights are installed. The sharply chiselled front bumper
which narrows down at both ends clearly identifies the vehicle as Lexus. The
rear of the car projects a wider image through its re-designed bumper and LED
lamps while the car rests upon 18 or 20 inch aluminium wheels that create a
powerful, premium appearance.
Mr Abbasi reiterated: "The LX is an evolution of a truly legendary vehicle.
The signature spindle grille we are introducing to a Lexus vehicle for the first
time provides the 2012 model with a dramatic front fascia which makes it stand
out from the rest of the luxury SUVs. The character of the vehicle has extended
to the interior with a refined cockpit designed to dazzle the automotive enthusiasts."
The exterior transformations extend to the interior of the car; three wood
trimmings cover the centre console, control panels and steering wheel arches.
In addition to a newly introduced metre cluster and display centre, a refreshed
instrument panel also enhances the on-board experience of the vehicle.
"LX rewards all of the senses and gives the owner experiences that transcend
beyond the ordinary. It is a highly luxurious vehicle which provides an individual
room for every aspect of life. There will be a host of customers who will want
to be part of this reinvigorated ride," Mr Abbasi concluded.
