See The Remarkable 2020 Lexus RX 450h

The Lexus RX launched the luxury crossover segment two decades ago,a car-like driving experience, and impeccable workmanship. The fourth-generation Lexus RX will be extensively redesigned for the 2020 model year in the security, multimedia
and suspension sectors.

You need a magnifying glass to see the exterior updates of the 2020 Lexus RX. Thinner headlamp groups, a reshaped spindle grille with square inserts and updated taillights are the most obvious changes from the outside. The interior is similar to the Pre-Refresh model, except for paddle shifters, six standard USB ports and standard NuLuxe synthetic leather covers for all variants.


What's new for 2020?
The biggest changes of the 2020 Lexus RX are in the cabin. The dreaded Lexus Remote Touch interface finally adds the integration of Android Auto, Apple Car-play and Alexa. A new 8.0-inch screen is now standard and an optional 12.3-inch device is returned. The difference is that both are now touchscreens. This means that you can minimize how often you use the overly complicated touch-pad that we have criticized in various Lexus-es over the years. If you choose the larger touchscreen, it also adds an advanced voice command feature that recognizes more phrases than the standard one.

Lexus also revised the suspension of the 2020 RX with thicker but hollow front and rear stabilizers, tuned dampers and shocks, and stiffer stabilizers to improve ride comfort. The 2020 Lexus RX also features a brake-assisted torque vectoring system that discreetly applies the brakes on the inner wheels for better handling and stability in cornering. F Sport models receive an updated Active Variable Suspension system that is said to be more responsive than before. F Sport's standard models include performance tuned dampers, as well as Sport + and custom driving modes. F Sports premium models feature a cold air intake, active noise control, a dedicated electric power steering and a heated steering wheel.
On the security front, the 2020 Lexus RX receives the Lexus Safety System + 2.0, which now includes detection of pedestrians and cyclists in low light conditions. The lane departure warning system detects lane markings and helps to center the vehicle when adaptive cruise control is activated. If there are clearly marked dividing lines on the road, the system may follow the preceding vehicle under certain conditions.

The 2020 Lexus RX 350 is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The RX 450h combines this six-cylinder with an electric motor and a CVT for 308 hp. The RX 450h is equipped with four-wheel drive as standard (optional on the RX 350), in which the rear wheels are driven by a second electric motor. Two- and three-row variants remain available.
We tested the Lexus RX last year in a three row RX 350L. Although we liked the smooth ride and luxurious cabin interiors, the infotainment system kept him back. The multimedia problem seems to have been solved with a full arsenal of smartphone integration technologies and additional UI handling capabilities. However, we reserve the full judgment until we have some time to test. We also hope the suspension adjustments will improve the crossover's handling and balance.
