2020 Lexus RX 450h F Sport – Popular Luxury SUV. You’d be forgiven if you looked at the refreshed 2020 Lexus RX and thought that nothing changed. The subtle exterior tweaks hide more substantial changes under the sheetmetal, many of which will likely make Lexus’ best-selling crossover even more appealing to consumers. Available in two- or three-row configurations, the 2020 Lexus RX aims to cement its place as the best-selling luxury crossover.
Lexus’ Safety System+ 2.0 now comes standard on all 2020 Lexus RX models. It builds on the previous driver assistance suite by adding features like cyclist detection, low-light pedestrian detection, and lane centering. The latter works together with the adaptive cruise control system to keep the vehicle in its lane on clearly marked streets and highways. When you’re driving on roads with minimal markings, Lane Tracing Assist will follow the vehicle up front instead but only under certain conditions.
Leather upholstery no longer comes standard on the 2020 Lexus RX. Instead, you get something called NuLuxe, which is a vinyl-like alternative. You also get additional color schemes including Birch and Circuit Red, the latter being exclusive to F Sport variants.
In addition to a larger 8.0-inch display becoming standard, the refreshed 2020 RX marks the return of touchscreens to Lexus vehicles. Both the new 8.0-inch unit and the optional 12.3-inch widescreen can now be controlled by touch, which means you don’t need to use the overly sensitive track pad to interface with the infotainment system
The 2020 Lexus RX is the first model in the luxury brand’s lineup to feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration as standard on all models. This gives you access to your Google and iCloud profiles, and enables your smartphone to assume multimedia duty. In addition, Amazon Alexa capability is also offered, provided you download the Lexus+Alexa app on your phone.
A modern family-friendly crossover should cater to the needs of its passengers and their mobile devices. The 2020 Lexus RX does exactly that with six USB ports standard on all variants. Running out of juice during long drives should become a thing of the past.
The 2020 Lexus RX gets a number of suspension updates, including the addition of thicker, but hollow, front and rear stabilizer bars. Reinforced bushings, retuned shock absorbers and dampers, stiffer anti-roll bars, and brake-based torque vectoring were all added to improve the RX’s driving experience.
Lexus has further distinguished the F Sport model even more from the rest of the 2020 RX lineup thanks to the addition of a quicker Active Variable Suspension system and performance-tuned dampers. A new option package specific to the F Sport adds extras like a cold air intake, active sound control, and a retuned electric power steering system.
The 2020 Lexus RX 350 gets some much-needed infotainment updates. It also comes with a higher price tag of $45,175.
The Lexus RX’s price is on par with the base 2020 Acura MDX, priced from $45,395. And it’s up just $330 from last year’s RX. Substituting front-wheel drive for all-wheel drive brings the price up to $46,575.
The F Sport, which gets sportier dampers and Sport+ drive mode, starts at $48,975 with front-wheel drive and $50,375 with all-wheel drive. The top-of-the-line F Sport Performance package adds an active variable suspension from the LC, cold air intake, electric power steering, and active sound control—all for a starting price of $51,375. The three-row RX 350L is priced from $48,325, or $49,725 with all-wheel drive.
Power still comes from a 3.5-liter V-6 making 295 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Although engine output remains the same, Lexus promises a smoother ride on the RX with retuned shocks and improved dampers. If it’s the 308-hp hybrid powertrain you’re looking for, the RX 450h goes for $47,775 and up.
