Lexus RX Named in Wards 10 Best User Experiences

Lexus RX Named in Wards 10 Best User Experiences

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus RX Named in Wards 10 Best User Experiences! Earlier this year we reported that the Lexus RX was named in Wards’s “10 Best Interiors” list for 2016, but now Ward’s has named the Lexus RX in their “10 Best User Experiences” list. The knowledgeable editors at Wards spend July and August evaluating the 29 all-new or significantly redesigned finalists during their routine commutes in the Metro Detroit area. Each vehicle was scored based on the following criteria: easy smartphone integration, user-friendly and intuitive controls, advanced intelligent driver assistance technology, and the usage of appealing interior materials as part of the overall user experience

WardsAuto Senior Content Director Drew Winter, explained the judging criteria, “We’re paying close attention to touchscreens, navigation systems and infotainment, and we want to know if voice controls work well and if connecting your smartphone is simple. We’re trying to quantify how easy it is overall to interact with a vehicle. Are controls easy to understand, or do you have to consult the owner’s manual? Are the driver-assistance systems, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping, functioning reliably, and do the interior materials enhance the user experience?” One of the most important features is the quiet comfort that driving the Lexus RX provides, with one editor describing the ride as a “calm connection to an otherwise busy world.”

Features such as trouble-free smartphone pairing; quickly enacted commands; an outstanding color head-up display (easy to see even in bright sunlight); detailed maps and multiple ways to access menus and information, including an ergonomic palm-rest and joystick that is adjustable to the driver’s preference; controlled all-speed radar cruise control; and non-irritating warning cues are what placed the Lexus RX on this list.

“At Lexus, we drive ourselves to make every aspect of owning our cars and SUVs a rewarding experience,” said Jeff Bracken, group vice president and general manager, Lexus. “To have the RX honored as having one of the best overall ‘user experiences’ in the market by the respected editors at WardsAuto means a great deal to our team, who spent countless hours ensuring that every part of the vehicle, inside and out, would delight our customers.”

Lexus Introducing Mirrorless Car at Paris Motor Show

Lexus Introducing Mirrorless Car at Paris Motor Show

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus Introducing Mirrorless Car at Paris Motor Show! Lexus is gearing up for a few big reveals at the Paris Motor Show including a mirrorless concept car (the UX), a Kinetic Seat, the refreshed Lexus IS, the new Lexus NX Sport Edition, and the LC. The name comes from an abbreviation of User Experience. Japan, where Lexus is headquartered, recently became one of the first nations to allow automakers to produce and sell mirrorless vehicles. The mirrorless cars rely on cameras to aid drivers in seeing behind and beside them, allowing for sleeker and more futuristic designs, and feed into screens inside the vehicle. Although specific details haven’t been released, the UX’s design is expected to be very different from previous models, with an extremely wide-bodied frame that is highly suspended off the ground and door handles placed in the center.

Lexus Introducing Mirrorless Car at Paris Motor ShowThe Kinetic Seat Concept is getting a lot of buzz for its innovative design, based on the way the human body operates. The spine stabilizes the movement of the head, allowing the pelvis and chest to rotate in opposite directions. The new Kinetic Seat Concept aims to recreate this mobility in car seats by better stabilizing the head, keeping the field of vision steady and improving ease of driving and comfort. This is achieved with a movable back rest and seat cushions that are designed to move kinetically with occupant weight and external forces. Spider-web pattern net seat “upholstery” extends out radially from the center of the back rest and is flexible enough to closely fit a variety of body shapes, dispersing the load and making it more comfortable to sit for prolonged periods. These threads are made from environmentally-conscious synthetic spider silk materials which is spun into a new material that offers outstanding shock absorbing properties. The center of the back rest is set a shoulder blade height, which induces rotational movement of the chest around the seat’s pivotal access, helping to better stabilize the head.

The Lexus Press Conference will take place on September 29 at 13:30 pm CEST at the Lexus stand in hall 4. Follow it in real time at http://livestream.com/LexusInternational

Child Passenger Safety Week

Child Passenger Safety Week

By | Community Support, Dealer News | No Comments

This week is Child Passenger Safety week. Did you know that Motor Vehicle Crashes are the leading cause of unintentional deaths among children aged 1-19? In 2014 alone, 451 children aged 8 and under died due to a motor vehicle crash making up 15% of childhood motor vehicle fatalities. Sadly 116 of these children were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Child Passenger Safety is an important topic and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight Florida laws regarding child passengers and to urge you to take the safety of your child passengers into consideration each time you are driving in your Wilde Car.

According to the Florida DMV, children 5 years old or younger must be secured in a federally approved child restraint system– specifically, children 3 or younger must use a separate car-seat or the vehicle’s built in child seat while children 4 through 5 years must sit in either a separate car seat, a built in child seat or a seat belt, depending on the child’s height and weight. Children 6-17 must wear a seatbelt. Failure to comply with these laws could result in a fine up to $60 and 3 points against your driver’s license. 

It is always safer for your child to ride in the backseat over the front and carseats are an important part of child passenger safety. Read below for car seat recommendations for your child from safecar.gov:

recommended-car-seat-graphic

Rear-Facing Car Seat:

Children under age 1 should always ride in rear-facing car seats. You should try to keep your child in rear-facing carseats until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by the car seat manufacturer. Convertible and All-In-One car seats typically have higher height and weight limits and allow your child to stay rear-facing longer. Once your child outgrows rear-facing they are ready for a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether.

Forward-Facing Car Seat:

Keep your child in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by your car seat’s manufacturer. Once your child outgrows the forward-facing car seat with a harness, it’s time to travel in a booster seat, but still in the back seat.

Booster Seat:

You should keep your child in a booster seat until they are big enough for a seat belt to fit properly, which means the lap belt lies snugly across the upper thighs (not stomach) and the shoulder belt should lie snugly across the shoulder and chest (not the neck or face). Once your child outgrows a booster seat, your child is finally ready for a seatbelt.

Seat Belt:

Even though your child has outgrown the booster seat, safety is still very important. The back seat is the safest place for your child and you should have them sit in the back until they are at least 12 years old. Never start the car without making sure your children are buckled up! Teaching them this habit young will help keep them safe when as passengers and future drivers.
