The F Sport brush is a broad one the brand is using to paint the RX crossovers in a sexier livery as well. While there aren’t any legitimate performance upgrades included in either package, for $2,000 GX customers get a new grille, exhaust tips, floor matts and new 18-inch cast alloy wheels.
Considering the GX costs upwards of $53,000, an upgrade priced like that probably makes sense. First, it gives buyers a little more motivation to buy now rather than waiting for next year’s updated styling. Second, it adds more appeal to a vehicle that doesn’t sell many units. Finally, at that price you’re essentially paying $500 per new wheel and getting a few other goodies to go along for the ride.
