All Lexus cars are aspirational. From a super-sleek Lexus LC 500 coupe to a go-anywhere-do-anything Lexus LX, every Lexus model has its own group of fans. The UAE represents one of the most dynamic environments in the world, with challenging terrain and glittering cities.
If you’re a driver in the UAE, you need a car that ticks all the boxes, whether you want a city commuter or an SUV that can take on the mighty dunes of the Empty Quarter. So which are the most popular Lexus models in the UAE? Here are our top choices.
Quite simply, one of the best SUVs on the market, the SUV combines the ability to tackle any terrain and any path in front of it with sublime Lexus luxury. The LX reminds you that yes, you can have an adventure, but you don’t have to sacrifice comfort and elegance to achieve your goals.
The LX 2023 features a colossal 3.5Ltr V6 twin-turbo engine that produces 409hp and 650Nm of torque, allowing it to make light work of even the toughest off-road path. Back on the tarmac, the smooth engine ensures that the LX glides along effortlessly. Inside, the cabin is VIP standard with generous rear seating and flawless attention to detail. With craftsmanship invested in every element, it’s little wonder that the Lexus LX is one of the UAE’s favourite SUVs.
The Lexus ES isn’t made – it’s crafted. This sublime sedan is one of the top Lexus models in the UAE and one glance at those elegant lines and exceptional interior and it’s easy to see why. The 2023 ES has been fine-tuned both aesthetically and performance-wise. Sleeker styling is complemented by a new grille pattern that updates the iconic Lexus spindle grille pattern that is so instantly recognisable. The lower profile not only gives it a more dominant road presence but also improves performance by reducing wind drag. That in turn delivers better fuel efficiency too, making it the ideal car for longer highway journeys.
ES customers can also benefit from the new Lexus Connect App, which gives you remote control over your vehicle from the comfort of your home or while out and about. The Lexus ES is the most advanced yet, with a plethora of unique safety features and technological advances. It’s no surprise that the ES is at the top of the list when it comes to the most popular Lexus models in the UAE.
If you want something a little larger and more spacious than a sedan but don’t want to go up to a full-size SUV, there is a perfect compromise in the form of a Lexus RX Crossover. Combining the sleek lines of a sedan but with a little extra ground clearance and more internal space, crossovers are the ideal solution and make fantastic family cars. They’re nippy and nimble to cope with city traffic on the daily commute, yet roomy enough to pack everything in for a weekend camping trip with the kids.
The RX 350 has proven to be a huge hit with UAE drivers, delivering outstanding performance, comfort and luxury as well as versatility. The standard RX 350 is powered by a 2.4Ltr turbocharged engine that is also highly efficient, giving you 275hp and 430Nm of torque. If you want to keep your carbon footprint down and your fuel efficiency up, there’s also a hybrid option available that combines a punchy electric motor with the petrol powertrain. While it may not be quite up to tackling some of the biggest dunes in the desert, the RX Crossover has no problem taking on the occasional rough track or dusty trail.
So which one is your favourite? It will depend on your lifestyle and your aspirations as a driver. The best way to find out which of our top Lexus models suits you is to book a test drive online with Al-Futtaim Lexus today.
