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.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

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.
