Af ter a long si­lence, Lexus Malaysia is back in the news with an ad­di­tion to its RX fam­ily. En­ter the RX300 Spe­cial Edi­tion, which, at RM434,000 af ter SST, is RM10,000 pricier than the RX300 Luxur y. Here’ why.

The front of the Spe­cial Edi­tion fea­tures an ex­tra un­der­body panel to pro­tect the body­work from stones and de­bris. Also new are the side body mould­ings that are in­te­grated with the new one-piece side steps. Higher up the flanks are new, cus­tom-de­signed vi­sors.

Ad­di­tional new items in­clude a step guard for the floor of the rear open­ing and the wel­come door lamp (pud­dle lamp) that projects the Lexus logo. The RX300 Spe­cial Edi­tion also has a dash­cam built into the rearview mir­ror and a Touch n’ Go reader/ trans­mit­ter. All these items are gen­uine Lexus ac­ces­sories that are in­stalled at UMW Toy­ota Mo­tor’s ac­ces­sories cen­tre in Bukit Raja, Se­lan­gor.

An­other im­me­di­ate ben­e­fit is that the RX300 Spe­cial Edi­tion has the five-year/un­lim­ited mileage fac­tory war­ranty that ’s avail­able with ev­ery ve­hi­cle sold by Lexus Malaysia.

The RX is one of the most suc­cess­ful mod­els from Lexus, the RX300 Spe­cial Edi­tion be­ing the sev­enth vari­ant from Lexus Malaysia. As with other AWD RX300 SUVs, the Spe­cial Edi­tion is pow­ered by a tur­bocharged 2.0-litre petrol en­gine that makes 235PS and 350Nm, and a 6-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.
