2021 Lexus RX 300 Luxury Special Edition - RM 12k bodykit? 01

If you ever thought the 2021 Lexus RX 300 was a little too sedate for Malaysian streets, this should fix it: the RX 300 Luxury Special Edition

This makes it the fourth RX variant in Malaysia, besides the Premium, Luxury, and F Sport variants. And from RM 421,909.50, it's RM 12k pricier than the Luxury variant.

So what does the Luxury Special Edition bring to the table?

Well, pretty much only visual enhancements. There's a new multi-piece bodykit that encapsulates a front splitter, side skirts, and a new rear bumper diffuser to give the SUV a sportier outlook.

The 20-inch wheels however, stay the same as they are on the Premium and Luxury variants. Capping off the look are a choice of four colours: Sonic Quartz, Sonic Titanium, Graphite Black Glass Flake, and Red Mica Crystal Shine.

  • Adaptive high beam system (AHS)
  • Blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert (BSM, RCTA)
