Geneva show may inspire car buyers

Fri, 20 Feb 2009
Motorists considering buying a car may find the models being displayed at the motor show in Geneva provide some inspiration.

Among the vehicles being unveiled is the luxury crossover RX 450h from Lexus.

The manufacturer pointed out the latest version of the car boasts significantly lower CO2 emissions than its predecessor.

It stated the RX 450h sets a new green standard for vehicles in this class.

Meanwhile, in addition to having less impact on the planet, the car also reportedly offers improved performance.

Commenting on the model, Lexus said: "The new RX 450h addresses the principal concerns of today's motorists in a market segment where sales have been affected by cost-of-ownership issues and growing environmental concerns."

The car is due to be launched in the UK this summer.

Lexus announced it would be revealing further details in Geneva.

In related motoring news, the manufacturer recently announced the CO2 emissions on its IS 220d model have been cut from 163 g/km to 148 g/km.
