TORONTO, ONTARIO– Moonlight holds a special place in many cultures. The many cultures associated the moon with love, unattainable beauty, and the cycles of time and creation, while the Japanese custom of moon viewing is an opportunity to give thanks and to celebrate the seasonal beauty of nature.
It’s in this spirit that Lexus designers have created the RX 350 and RX 450h “Moonlight Edition” models – limited production configurations of this popular luxury SUV, new for 2022.
The 2022 RX 350 Moonlight Edition (starting MSRP: $58,400) and 2022 RX 450h Moonlight Edition (starting MSRP: $62,250) are available in a choice of Eminent White Pearl or Caviar Black. For these limited production models, Lexus has enhanced the classic RX styling with 20” black alloy wheels, unique black exterior accents including a black-out grille, front/rear splitter, and wing mirrors, and a unique black/birch interior combination featuring New Luxe seats, light grey stitching, and black matte walnut trim. Guests also receive an exclusive gift set inspired by the Japanese moon festival, Tsukimi. As Tsukimi encourages individuals to take a contemplative moment to celebrate the seasonal beauty of nature, this gift set encourages Guests to enjoy moments of beauty:
Inside the home, a custom Lexus tea set including teapot, four cups, a special blend of tea and a Mochi tea recipe offers Guest’s moments of serenity and peace alongside their closest companions.
On the road, a special Lexus portable telescope in its own carrying bag invites Guests to explore the beauty of the night sky after a scenic drive away from city lights.
The RX Moonlight Editions invite Lexus Guests into a cabin of sublime comfort and superb craftsmanship, complete with many comfort features and elegant finishes such as the hand-switched leather dash. These two-row models’ seat five adults in comfort and featuring versatile interiors that quickly reconfigure to provide additional cargo space when required.
