2020 RX facelift features a refreshed styling and new standard tech. While we were relieved to discover the infotainment system has been given a much-needed update, pricing details were kept under wraps – until now.
On the outside, Lexus changed the look of the front by updating the spindle grille, which had previously featured horizontal slats, and adding more prominent surrounds to the fog lights that echo the grille. Also echoed are the hand-drawn angles of the grille surround at each corner of the bumper to harmonize the visual flow.
As standard, the cabin comes with an eight-inch infotainment system for every trim, or an upgraded 12.3-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and improved voice-recognition technology. Standard safety tech now also includes daytime bicyclist detection, low-light pedestrian detection, Road Sign Assist (RSA), and Lane Tracing Assist (LTA).
New for 2020, the RX 350 F Sport will be split into an F Sport appearance package and Performance package. Both include unique a steering wheel and shift knob, plus aluminum pedals and ornamentation, bumpers, grille, 20-inch wheels, front and rear performance dampers, LED ambient illumination and other goodies. The Performance package adds adaptive variable suspension based on the Lexus LC500, vehicle dynamics integrated management, sound generator, electric sport power steering, moonroof and heated and ventilated seats.
Lexus has confirmed the 2020 RX 350 starts at $44,150 while the 2020 RX 350L will set you back $47,300. Lexus says that both models have already entered production and will be arriving in dealers shortly. The F Sport model, on the other hand, starts at $47,950, while the F Sport with the optional Performance Package will start at $50,350. All prices exclude delivery, processing and handling fees.
