With all this, Roberto Bautista continues to be one of the tennis players who has been in the exclusive group of the best twenty players in the world for the longest time.
The man from Castellón, who combined soccer and tennis until he was 14, feels almost the same passion for cars as his father and grandfather, although horses, he owns seven, are his great passion. In fact, his is a long history linked to sports . Bautista was born on April 14, 1988 in Benlloch, Castellón. He started playing tennis at the age of five with his mother, whom he accompanied on weekends. He grew up watching idols like Juan Carlos Ferrero and David Ferrer. He enjoys riding a horse (he has seven) and practicing all kinds of sports, especially soccer. A loyal fan of Villarreal CF, he played football for Villarreal CF until he was 14, when he decided to focus his career on tennis.
The new crossover, RX 450h and RX 450h L with 7 seats, represents a clear evolution of the best-selling model in the history of the brand –more than three million units–, as well as one more example of the commitment that the Japanese manufacturer maintains for its pioneering status in the premium crossover segment. The new RX has arrived on the market again incorporating new equipment items and some design changes, while always maintaining its original DNA.
The model’s exterior retains a powerful and sporty appearance , while the character line running from front to rear has been enhanced, lending exceptional fluidity and consistency to the overall RX look. The result is a sleek and dynamic exterior, emphasizing the new Lexus design language.
Among the changes that this new RX has undergone are a more modern and advanced style, an even more comfortable and practical interior and an improved level of ride, driving feel and response. However, it is also true that the character is the same as always. Thus, for example, safety continues to be an essential aspect, with the new RX becoming the first vehicle in the world to have a new adaptive high beam control system, which offers the driver a much wider field of night vision than until now.
In terms of driving character , the RX follows in the footsteps of the iconic LC 500h flagship coupe and LS 500h flagship saloon. The result, after engineers carefully studied all the components of the vehicle and improved the rigidity of the body and suspension system, is a vehicle with excellent driving feel and precision, with which the driver will feel comfortable and safe. .
