GO AHEAD—BUILD YOUR 2013 RX

5/24/2012—You know, if you like cars, especially premium cars, it helps to live in the digital age.

Lexus has, for a long time, allowed Lexus fans to try out different vehicle colors and options at Lexus.com, but it’s especially fun when a new, or upcoming, vehicle gets its first build-your-own Lexus tool.

Which brings us to the latest model that allows fans to try out different colors online: the 2013 RX[1][2].

After playing with the menu’s RX 350, RX 350 F SPORT, and RX 450h options, the Lexus magazine crew collectively chose—after much “spirited discussion”—an Obsidian RX 450h (dark but sleek, no?) with the optional 19-inch, split-five-spoke alloy superchrome finish wheels:

Yep, that would definitely look good in a driveway.

The interior was an even tougher choice—offsetting the darkness with some gray leather seemed like a sharp-looking way to go (officially, this is the Light Gray Leather Ebony Bird’s Eye Maple Luxury Package):

Then again, wood tones add warmth to all that elegance—here’s the Saddle Tan Leather Espresso Bird’s Eye Maple Luxury Package:

Of course, there’s no wrong answer here—your personal choices are the right ones, especially if you choose to make a 2013 RX your own.
