Toyota's in-house tuner releases parts for the new Lexus LX
Lexus Philippines has yet to launch the all-new LX in the country. However, those planning to pick up a unit can already order some customization parts ahead of time. Toyota’s in-house design brand, Modellista, has just released parts for the LX, making the flagship SUV look even more luxurious.
As with most Modellista kits, the one available for the new Lexus LX is mainly comprised of a wraparound lip kit. There’s a new front bumper extension and rear bumper spoiler that further enhances the original body lines of the SUV. These parts also add a bit of sportiness to the luxury SUV. Instead of a side skirt, the company fit a new stainless steel side step to add a more luxurious touch. Completing the makeover is a new set of 22-inch Modellista wheels with a very flashy design.
Unfortunately, Modellista offers no interior upgrades for the new LX. Considering how luxurious the SUV already is, maybe the company decided to leave things in the cabin as is. With the kit and wheels installed, the LX looks more aggressive than before. We won’t be surprised if a few upcoming LX owners in the Philippines decides to order the kit.
The Modellista LX kit does come with a steep price tag, though. The front bumper extension, rear bumper spoiler, and sidestep alone already costs JPY 478,500 or roughly PHP 212,340. As for the 22-inch wheels, they retail for JPY 1,110,450 or PHP 493,000. Mind you, those prices don’t include shipping from Japan yet. Then again, if you have enough money to purchase an LX, then these prices shouldn't be a problem for you.
There’s no word yet when Lexus Philippines plans to launch the new LX, but we suspect it should be sometime this year. That said, maybe you should order the Modellsita LX kit now while waiting for your SUV.
