Overview of 2020 Lexus RX

The crossover has added some nice as well as nasty twists to its remodeling for 2020. Set to be officially released sometime in fall 2019, the RX is not one that wholly stuns us all like other luxe SUVs in its class would ordinarily do. We are only wowed by its massive engine upgrade and probably a few other features that haven't been constructed before in any Lexus model.

Except for a few tweaks here and there, the RX's exterior retains its old looks. We are presented with an expressive sculpting that beautifully accentuates the front fog lamp implants and headlamps. This distinctive styling complements well with its well-tapered grille and rear roof setup. The tail lamps and reflectors are not left out either. The rear power lift-gate greet us with the convenience of a foot kick sensor. However, drivers need not provoke the bumper in the quest to make an impact. A light kick goes a long way.

Engine & Performance of 2020 Lexus RX

The Lexus RX and RXL each feature a 3.5 liter V6 engine, and both have the option of a traditional hybrid powertrain that emits a 308 horsepower and 335 Nm torque. The RX 350L and RX 350 trims both supply 267 bl-foot torque and 296 hp. Just how sick is that! What's more? The engine is combined with a CVT coupled with a mind blowing, super awesome electric all-wheel drive system that races a 0-62mph in just 7.7 seconds.

Fuel economy is great, with a combined EPA rating of 24 mpg. Even more impressive is the remarkable innovation in steering reaction and handling. Suspension is equally revised with solid front and back suspension bars, well-tuned dampers and rigid anti-roll bars. That explains its superb riding performance.

What's disappointing though is a reduction in body roll. Forget that and you'll discover that the 2020 RX additionally gets a vectoring system that ushers in the era of fantastic handling and good stability even when navigating through twirls and turns.

Interior of 2020 Lexus RX

Talk of super cushiness, the Lexus RX offers just that. The SUV seats in five and seven persons, depending on the body style. In any case, the seats have a welcoming function of totally enveloping you in them, so much that it feels like you're wrapped in your actual winter blankets. That's probably linked to its NuLuxe leather upholstery that’s been newly built into the Lexus RX 2020.

Legroom? You can trust that there's plenty of it. What's not been revealed however is cargo space. The Lexus' infotainment system is fussy in some kind of way. It lacks ergonomics and is controlled by a touch pad. Even though it's been improved on, the pad is not one to attach your-self to. It's cumbersome and requires a certain sense of dexterity, which implies that those who aren't familiar cannot enjoy its benefits, most likely even its owner. What's worse is when the vehicle is in motion. It's almost untouchable. How annoying!

As you know, the Lexus is high priced and you know why. What should be budgeted for this SUV is a whopping $44,000 - $55,000 (~N15.9 million - N19.9 million). No jokes! It's the new trendy model.

Best to go for it, if it's right on budget or save up for it, if it's not. Nigerian used price? Forget it.
