How to set your perfect driving position in your Lexus

Enjoy the best possible driving experience in your new Lexus by learning how to set your perfect driving position. A correctly positioned seat, steering wheel, and door mirrors also help you to remain safely in control at all times. For added convenience, seat position memory enables you to quickly revert to your ideal position after another person has driven the vehicle.

The short films below show you how to tailor the position of your seat, steering wheel and door mirrors in the Lexus ES, NX, RX and UX. You can also read on for a general guide to each setting.

Setting your perfect driving position

Adjusting your seat

Before making any adjustments in the car, start the engine or press the start button once to enter Accessory mode.

Seat adjusters located on the side of the seat base are intuitive and easy to use without looking at them. The horizontal switch moves the seat base in four ways – forwards and backwards to alter your legroom and up and down to adjust your headroom. The upright switch alters the inclination of the seatback, and (where fitted) a separate switch adjusts the lumbar support.

Seat position memory (where fitted) allows you to save the settings for up to three different drivers. Memorise your settings by pressing ‘Set’ and the desired memory number until a sound is heard.

When you next get into the car, press the number to have your seat automatically reposition. On some models, seat position memory can also be linked to specific vehicle keys for added convenience.

Adjusting the steering wheel

Setting your steering wheel in the correct position enables you to have a good view of the instrument panel and ensure that your arm position is comfortable.

The adjustment switch is located on the side of the steering cowl and moves the wheel in four directions – up and down, and towards or away from the driver.

Adjusting the door mirrors

Adjust the door mirrors or digital side-view monitors using a switch on the driver’s armrest. Select which side you want to adjust by pressing ‘L’ for left or ‘R’ for right. Use the four-way directional pad to adjust the mirror or monitor until it’s set just right for you.

The switch marked ‘AUTO’ controls the folding function of the door mirrors. When set to ‘AUTO’, the mirrors will automatically fold when the car is locked and unfold when it is opened.
