Safety

The LX boasts 10 airbags. In addition to the usual front and front-seat side-impact bags are second-row side-impact airbags and a knee airbag for each front occupant. There are curtains to protect third-row passengers. Behind the curve in the area of active head restraints, Lexus finally introduces them on this model, for the front seats. They also provide seat belt pretensioners for the second row as well as the front seats. This remains rare in the market. LX models equipped with the optional adaptive cruise control also feature the Pre-Collision System, which detects an impending collision via radar and tightens the belts before impact; typically these features activate along with the airbags once the "crash event" has begun.
