2024 Lexus LBX small SUV detailed

Lexus Australia has confirmed detail of its new LBX small SUV which will hit showrooms in Australia in the first half of 2024.

The all-new line-up will be offered in two trim levels – Luxury and Sports Luxury, skipping the F Sport variant available in Lexus’ wider range.

Powering both variants will be a 1.5-litre three-cylinder hybrid petrol engine producing 100kW of power.

Lexus says the powertrain has been tuned to deliver smooth, agile and refine performance, while offering top-class efficiency.

The engine has “high-speed combustion technology with Variable Valve Timing by Intelligent electric motor (VVT-iE)”, ultra lightweight piston and variable cooling system.

While pricing will be confirmed closer to launch, Lexus has detailed the standard equipment offered in the LBX.
