For the 2020 model year, the Lexus RX and RXL have a more responsive steering and added multimedia options for smartphone and touchscreen integration. A range of interior and exterior enhancements build on the iconic luxury crossover’s appeal and contribute to the reinvigorated design and function, key to discerning Lexus guests.
New for 2020, the RX line is the first to receive Android Auto integration, in addition to in-car connected technology applications from Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa. Guests can seamlessly interact with their smart device of choice through familiar on-screen apps on the optional 12.3-inch touchscreen or standard 8-inch touchscreen in all 2020 RX, RXh, RXL, and RXhL models.
“The best-selling Lexus RX continues to be a focus for the brand’s innovation and a lasting favorite of our guests. The new 2020 model builds on the guest satisfaction and refinement this groundbreaking luxury crossover has carried since its introduction more than 20 years ago,” said David Christ, Lexus group vice president and general manager.
Technology at the Speed of Life
The Lexus Multimedia System touchscreen has been moved nearly 5.5 inches closer to the driver and offers control of both audio and climate systems, in addition to providing a view of what’s behind the vehicle via the backup camera. Guests will have the option to choose between the standard 8-inch display and available 12.3-inch high-resolution, split-screen multimedia display.
With two additional USB ports (6 total), new designated cell phone storage and smartphone integration, the new 2020 Lexus RX helps guests keep up with their fast-paced lives and stay connected on the go. In addition, the new Lexus App allows guests to do everything from starting their vehicle remotely with a smartphone, to contacting dealers for a service appointment, and much more. With an active subscription, the Lexus App dashboard provides a personalized view of convenient vehicle and connected service information, including the Vehicle Health Report, scheduled maintenance and vehicle health alerts. Guests also can manage their subscriptions right from the palm of their hand.
Dynamic Voice Command (DVC) is featured on 2020 Lexus RX crossovers with the available 12.3-inch multimedia system. The voice-recognition system can recognize millions more phrases than conventional Lexus systems. DVC offers greater accuracy, seamless address entry and expanded Points of Interest searches.
Both the 2020 RX and RXL have started production and will be available at dealers soon. The 2020 RX 350 MSRP starts at $44,150 and the 2020 RX 350L MSRP will be $47,300, not including delivery, processing and handling fees.
