Serving Westmont, IL

The current Lexus lineup is filled with gorgeous models that refuse to disappoint drivers or passengers. Today’s body styles perfectly express the Lexus reputation for blending power, luxury, and modern appeal. As you explore the Lexus SUV options available today, the 2020 NX and the 2020 RX are considered top picks. The NX is a compact luxury crossover SUV that is an entry-level option in the lineup. It has been offered since 2015, and it continues to be a popular option for today’s shoppers.

In comparison, the 2020 Lexus RX was introduced as a compact luxury crossover in 1998. Since 2003, it has been classified as a midsize luxury crossover. Its latest generation also started in 2015. Is the NX or the RX the right SUV for you to head home in? A closer look at what these vehicles bring to the table will help you to decide.


The 2020 Lexus NX is available in two gas-powered trims and one hybrid trim. The two gas-powered versions are loaded with a 2.0-liter, turbo 4-cylinder engine that gives off 235 horsepower. The hybrid version pairs a battery pack with a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine, and this combination provides you with 194 horsepower. In comparison, the 2020 Lexus RX is offered in three gas-powered options and two hybrid versions. The gas powertrain in the RX is a 3.5-liter, V6 engine that will impress you with 395 horsepower. The hybrid variation has a similar gas-powered component combined with a battery pack, and it delivers 208 horsepower.


Visually, the NX is smaller throughout the exterior dimensions. It has triangular LED headlights that are placed directly over lightning bolt-style accent lights. Air intake vents sit on both sides of the bow tie-style mesh grille, and these vents stand over the foglamps. Beautiful character lines slope down into the grille’s design perfectly, and side contours draw attention to the SUV’s sporty profile. On the other hand, the 2020 Lexus RX has sharper and more elongated LED headlights, and there is not an accent light on the front end. The grille is equally dominant, and it is flanked by air intake portals. The crisp character lines on the hood and sides give the new RX for 2020 an edgy, modern look.


As the entry-level SUV in the Lexus lineup, the NX has essential comforts and tech features that you are looking for at the base trim level, and elevates as you step up to higher trims; which holds across the five RX trims for 2020. Generally, your Lexus SUV could give you heated leather seats, memory front seats, a kick sensor for the tailgate release, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, two display screens, wireless Internet, a Mark Levinson audio system and many other items.
