There is a great news that the manufacturer is preparing a change and a redesign of the well-known model – 2020 Lexus RX. In that way, this attractive small SUV should be a main changed model for this class since they have not changed this line of the models for a long time. However, being very attractive for old buyers, RX has undergone few important changes that should attract new buyers.
When it comes to the design of 2020 Lexus RX the changes that manufacturer has added are only in details. There is wide and popular Lexus’s mesh grille with a logo in the middle and thin LED front lights on the sides and below the hood line. The rear end is rounded but with sharp edges and lines that support the line of the trunk door. Even though the model has a very low roof (that affect the size of the cabin), there are wide tires below it which provides stability. It is more elegant and softener than Toyota Highlander or Toyota 4Runner.
There are great improvements in the cabin of 2020 Lexus RX from the last model. For those that used on elegantly and luxury designed SUVs things like synthetic leather upholstery sounds like a cheap version of the quality crossovers. However, there are things like LED headlights, an 8.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment, power front seats, dual-zone climate control, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, and especially upgraded rain-sensing wipers, all as a standard equipment. Whatever it is, the cabin is large and comfortable, with plenty of space for seven passengers in three rows of seats.
2020 Lexus RX should be driven by the same engine as before. It is strong 3.5-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission. Buyers will be able to choose between front and all-wheel driving systems. The higher trim version, a 350 RX should have a slightly weaker engine that produces 290 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. The main change is in one exhaust which this version does not have, so the strength of the engine is lower. However, it is also slightly less economical.
