Exterior changes include revised front and rear bumpers, a new rear diffuser and side skirts, different exhaust tips, and a fresh set of front and rear lamps. The new RX is the only car in Lexus’s catalogue so far to include their new BladeScan Adaptive High-beam LED headlights, which Lexus claim offer even better visibility for the driver without dazzling drivers approaching on the other side of the road.
Moving inside, the Lexus has added a new infotainment touchscreen system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice control functionality. In the seven-seater model, the car’s third row of seats has been redesigned with a new setting to allow more legroom for passengers seated behind.
Further upgrades include new suspension, body shell reinforcements to improve structural rigidity, and stiffer anti-roll bars. New shock absorbers and Active Cornering Assist have also been added to help reduce understeer and make the drive more manageable.
Like its predecessor, the 2020 Lexus RX will run on a 3.5-litre V6 hybrid powertrain capable of 308bhp and powering the car from 0-62mph in 7.7 seconds.
