Our favorite updates on the 2020 RX are both big and small but true love is found in the details. New functionality including a sleek compartment to hold your smartphone on the center console while driving means you now have a secure place, besides your lap, to carry the too-big-for-the-cup holder, iPhone Plus (thank you, Lexus!) Albeit minor at first glance, we are loving the fresh new look given to the RX front and rear fascia. With slimmer headlamps and a distinctive new ‘face’, the 2020 RX reflect the latest Lexus design themes with a balance between sophistication and strength.
