2020 Lexus RX450h
The RX is still relatively fresh and we expect from the current generation to carry on for another couple of years before we see a redesign. Therefore, the 2020 Lexus RX450h is about to come without more important changes. The hybrid version of the popular crossover rides for years and makes pretty good sales numbers.
It has been praised for excellent fuel economy, but there is much more than this crossover can give you, starting from a luxurious cabin, comfortable ride and much more. Considering that there are no changes to come for the next year, we expect to see 2020 Lexus RX450h on market sometime late in the year.
- Smooth ride
- Great fuel economy
- Massive and comfortable seats
- Excellent interior qualityCons:
- Small cargo area
- Awkward infotainment system
From the outside, the 2020 Lexus RX450h will look like a typical Lexus. It will continue to follow the company’s recognizable design language, characterized by the famous spindle grille layout. In terms of mechanics, this is one of the rare models that still rides on the previous-generation K platform, just like the mainstream Toyota Highlander.
Those who are familiar with this architecture may presume that the 2020 Lexus RX450h won’t be the most athletic model in the class. Still, the ride is smooth and pretty comfortable. The next generation of this popular model will definitely switch to a new TNGA platform, so we can count on far better driving dynamics.
This has always been one of the strongest aspects of RX models. The current generation is no exception at all. You can count on first-grade materials, while the dashboard looks pretty stylish. As you probably know, this model comes in two variants, with either two or three rows of seating.
In both cases, the first two rows are very comfortable, while the third row is, typically for the segment, relatively tight. On the other side, you can count on a long list of standard equipment. It will include tech goodies like 8-inch display, 12-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, two USB ports, navigation etc.

The 2020 Lexus RX450h will continue with a familiar hybrid configuration that is based on a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This gasoline engine comes coupled with three electric motors, so a max output goes up to 308 horsepower. Such amount of power provides pretty strong acceleration and very smooth ride.
Still, the more impressive thing about this powertrain is its great fuel economy. You can count on 30 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the city, which are amazing numbers for the class.
