2020 Lexus RX 350 F Sport

Pros: Impressive all-around refinement; exceptionally quiet cabin; F Sport model offers good balance of ride and handling; generous selection of available comfort and safety features

Cons: Middling acceleration for the class; so-so cargo capacity; finicky Remote Touch infotainment interface; polarizing styling

CG Says: The 2020 Lexus RX has refreshed front and rear styling and revised suspension tuning. Android Auto functionality is a new feature, along with daytime bicyclist detection, low-light pedestrian detection, and lane centering. This premium midsize luxury crossover is available in RX 2-row and RX L 3-row configurations. The RX L seats up to seven passengers. Both RX and RX L offer 350 and 450h hybrid models; the 350’s 3.5-liter V6 develops 295 horsepower and the 450h’s gas/electric powertrain puts out 308 hp. The 350 has an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the 450h uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard on 350. All-wheel drive is available on 350 and is standard on 450h. Among the available features are a head-up display, panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, a hands-free power liftgate, power-folding second-row and third-row seats, and an extra-large 12.3-inch infotainment-system screen. Available safety features include includes pre-collision braking, pedestrian detection, 360-degree surround-view cameras, lane-departure warning and mitigation, blind-spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert. The radically styled bodywork of the Lexus RX certainly isn’t for everyone, but it cloaks an impressive vehicle. The RX boasts a cabin that is impeccably finished in high-quality materials and it has an engaging driving personality—especially in F Sport models. The RX remains supremely comfortable in any of its forms. If you like its in-your-face styling, the RX should be on your premium midsize SUV shopping list.
