Our spy photographers have managed to capture on camera the new generation of the Lexus RS, which was being tested out on public roads.

The best selling mid-sized luxury SUV on the U.S. market, the Lexus RX, is getting ready to receive yet another generation, which will have to tough job of being even better than it and to take on models such as the Ford Edge, the Acura MDS, the Volkswagen Touareg, the Mercedes-Benz GLE or the BMW X5. The vehicle in question is currently in development and before being officially unveiled, the company has to make sure that everything is in its right place and working just like it should.

The 2016 Lexus RS will be slightly larger than the current version and it is believed to get an evolutionary design which will still make it instantly recognizable. The vehicle will offer excellent mobility and more luxury and it should get a redesigned front grille and improved look of the LED headlights, along with several other tweaks which will help it stand out from a crowd.

As far as the engine goes, rumor has it that the V8 with 350 HP will be offered on the new RX generation, which should be connected to the 8-speed transmission. A seven-seat version of it is also expected to hit the market, with a 3-row seating arrangement, but this hasn’t been confirmed at this time. More details on the 2016 Lexus RX are expected to be announced next week, at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit, where the model should be making its public debut.
