Lexus equips SUV for winter season

Lexus has revealed its new Lifestyle version of its RX full hybrid SUV has been equipped to deal with the winter season.

The RX 450h SE-I Lifestyle, which is tailor-made to enhance motorists' outdoor experience, now comes with an added set of accessories like roof rails, rear bumper protection and front and rear under-run plates.

To tackle muddy boots, the manufacturer has fitted the inside of the car with a tough boot liner.

A refrigerated cool box has also been provided to keep food and drinks warm when the mercury dips.

Bought separately, all the new features would cost a total to £1,500, but consumers will only have to pay an extra £499 when they buy the RX 450h SE-I Lifestyle for an on-road price of £48,899.
