An all-new family-friendly Lexus SUV

It has been a banner year for Lexus SUVs with the reveals of new GX and LX models and, now, the introduction of an all-new line, the TX. 

A luxurious three-row SUV, the TX expands on the success of the RX models. It is a long, large vehicle but thanks to clean lines and modern styling, it takes up less visual space than it should, and is 

remarkably aerodynamic. The front end is adorned with Lexus’ new Unified Spindle grille and LED lighting. The wide stance gives the TX a sleek and imposing posture.
The cabin is exactly what one expects from a Lexus, with world-class materials, including sumptuous leathers and ultrasuede, contrasting stitching, beautifully textured soft-touch plastics and, of course, unparalleled fit and finish throughout. 

The high driving position offers a commanding view of the road ahead, while the heated and ventilated seats coddle driver and passengers in well-bolstered comfort. Behind the grippy, heated steering wheel is a fully digital dash that allows the driver to customize its display. 

Front and centre is a massive 14-inch touchscreen display that handles functions and vehicle settings including climate, navigation, and the available 21-speaker Mark Levinson audiophile sound system that effortlessly reproduces the highest highs and the lowest lows. 

The TX is available in a six- or seven-passenger configuration, swapping a second-row bench for captain’s chairs in the six-seater. The second row has plenty of room with heated, ventilated and fully adjustable seats. 

Access to the third row is as simple as pushing a button and watching the second-row seating slide forward and out of the way, allowing the rearmost passengers easy ingress and egress to a third row that is spacious and comfortable. Plenty of well-thought storage options and charging plugs for both rows of passengers make the TX an excellent family SUV.

As with any Lexus SUV, the TX’s ride is buttery smooth, soaking up the biggest hits and bumps that Edmonton streets can provide. An exceptional, adaptive variable suspension system allows the big vehicle to handle competently, considering its size.

Lexus goes to great lengths to ensure every part of the driving experience in each of their vehicles is serene. The TX is no exception. It is quiet—almost silent—in every driving scenario, even at highway speeds.

Power is plentiful from both drivetrains; customers can choose between a 275-horsepower 2.4L turbocharged engine, or step up to a Parallel Hybrid system coupled with a 2.4L turbocharged engine that puts out 366 horsepower and uses 25 percent less fuel. Either option provides a powerful and refined driving experience.

When it comes to utility, the TX has plenty of it with storage bins galore and ample cargo space. With the third row in use, the trunk can still accommodate seven carry-on sized suitcases. 

With luxurious comfort in every seat, the newest technology on board, efficient power to spare under the hood and striking good looks, the TX is a fantastic new offering from Lexus. It is sure to be an attractive solution for those in the market for a luxury three-row SUV.
