Lexus has unveiled the 2020 Lexus RX and RXL 3-row SUV. The SUVs have been updated inside and out for the 2020 model year including an updated Lexus Multimedia System and more. Changes to the outside of the RX line include new front and rear fascias and new standard 18-inch wheel design.

Lexus fits the SUVs with triple-beam LED headlights as an option. The updated infotainment system has an available 12.3-inch touchscreen paired with a remote touchpad with a powerful voice and nav functions. Lexus also integrated Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa voice assistant is supported.

The new front end of the RX family has slimmer headlamps, and the rear fascia has a diffuser, dual exhaust pipes, and updated reflector angle. Along with the new standard 18-inch wheels, new 20-inch wheels are included with the Luxury Grade.

Two new exterior colors are offered with Moonbean Beige Metallic and Nori Green Pearl, a color first used on the Lexus UX.
