Lexus RX Safety Features Icons

Pre-Collision System* with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control*

The available Pre-Collision System (PCS)* is engineered to detect an imminent frontal collision and, while retracting the front seatbelts, automatically prepares Brake Assist* to help provide increased braking pressure the moment you step on the brake pedal. To help you maintain a preset following distance from the vehicle ahead, the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* feature uses radar technology to sense the speed of any vehicles in front of you. If your vehicle gets too close to the vehicle ahead, the throttle is automatically reduced and the brakes are applied. As soon as the road ahead clears, the vehicle returns to its preset speed.
Optional On: RX 450h

Pre-Collision System with Pre-Collision Braking and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

The Pre-Collision System* and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* systems offered on RX can detect an imminent frontal collision and can apply the brakes to help reduce impact energy.
Optional On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Structural safety

The RX was engineered with a highly rigid body structure with front and rear crumple zones, side-impact door beams, reinforcements in pillars and door sills, impact-dissipating upper interior trim, a collapsible steering column and a collapsible brake pedal.
Standard On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Blind Spot Monitor*

To help you change lanes with confidence, the available Blind Spot Monitor* is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes.
Optional On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Smart Stop Technology*

This system* is designed to automatically reduce engine power when the brake pedal is firmly applied, even if the accelerator pedal is fully pressed down.
Standard On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Braking and Traction Control systems

Braking and Traction Control systems on the RX include a number of innovative features, including: four-wheel ventilated power-assisted disc brakes, a four-sensor, four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Traction Control (TRAC), and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)*.
Standard On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management*

This system* can predict and take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs by using a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance.
Standard On: RX 350 F SPORT

Brake Assist*

In some instances, drivers fail to push the brake pedal hard enough to engage the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Brake Assist* senses a panic-stop scenario by judging how quickly and how forcefully the driver hits the brake pedal, automatically applying increased braking boost until the driver releases pedal pressure.
Standard On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

RAIN-SENSING INTERMITTENT WINDSHIELD WIPERS WITH MIST CYCLE

A sensor located in the windshield activates the wipers when water is detected. The speed of the wipers adjusts as often as necessary depending on the quantity of rainfall.
Standard On: RX 350 F SPORT
Optional On: RX 450h, RX 350
Included In: Comfort Package

Electronic all-wheel drive

To help provide improved control on a wide range of road surfaces and conditions*, an electric motor in the RX hybrid delivers instantaneous torque to the rear wheels automatically when you need it, and with no friction loss.
Standard On: RX 450h

Active Front Headrests*

Active front headrests* reduce the space between the occupant's head and headrest, limiting excessive head movement and helping to decrease the severity of whiplash-type* injuries.
Standard On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Active Torque Control all-wheel drive

Active Torque Control all-wheel drive can provide improved control on a wide range of road surfaces and conditions by automatically allocating engine power between the front and rear axles. In fact, the system on the RX 350 is so innovative that under normal driving conditions, 100% of the power is sent to the front wheels for optimal efficiency. Should a series of sensors detect a change in conditions, the system can instantly send up to 50% of the power to the rear wheels to help maintain traction.
Standard On: RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

Regenerative braking system

During conventional braking, kinetic energy is lost in the form of heat. With the Lexus RX Hybrid, however, this energy is captured and repurposed to automatically recharge the battery.
Standard On: RX 450h

LED headlamps with dynamic auto leveling and LED foglamps

Optional On: RX 450h

Intuitive Parking Assist

Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front, rear and corners of the bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects. Using audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display, the system can notify you of a detected object's location and proximity, helping with routine tasks like parallel parking.
Optional On: RX 450h, RX 350 F SPORT, RX 350

HID headlamps with LED foglamps

In addition to the striking design of the new LED foglamps, High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps provide illumination up to three times that of conventional halogen headlamps while reducing power consumption by roughly 30 percent. They also feature a dynamic auto-leveling function that automatically adjusts the angle of the headlamps to help reduce glare to oncoming drivers.
