Toyota’s in-house tuning arm, TRD (Toyota Racing Development) has turned its attention to luxury arm Lexus, offering a series of upgrade parts for the boldly styled RX SUV.

The new range of accessories will wear the F Sport Parts banner, and include items such as a quad-tipped exhaust system, 22-inch alloy wheels, and a pair of retuned damper options.

Aero additions include a lower front lip, reprofiled side skirts, and a rear bumper skirt, which have been designed to reduce drag and increase downforce, although the exact reason why that’s desirable on a mild mannered family-freighting SUV is still unclear.

While the new RX isn’t lacking in presence in its standard form, the F Sport Parts range gives the angular SUV an even more aggressive edge.

Apart from a ‘pleasant sporty sound’ from the muffler, there’s no mention of performance upgrades, leaving the range of turbocharged four-cylinder, aspirated V6, and V6 hybrid engines untouched.

Lexus will launch the new RX in Australia towards the end of November, and while the standard F Sport model will be part of the lineup, the F Sport Parts upgrades aren’t likely to make the trip over, meaning Australian buys will have to forgo the styling upgrade package.
