Lexus RX seven-seat 2020 review: snapshot

The Lexus RX 2020 model range has a few difference seven-seat models.

The Lexus RX 2020 model range has a few difference seven-seat models you can choose, with two powertrains and two trim levels apiece.

That may sound confusing, but here’s a rundown.

The entry point to the RX seven-seater range is the RX 350L Luxury, which is priced at $85,000 before on-road costs The RX 350L Sports Luxury adds a lot of extra gear and pushes the price up to $101,600.

The RX 350L models are powered by a 3.5-litre petrol V6 engine producing 216kW (at 6300rpm) and 358Nm (at 1650-4000rpm). They run an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, and fuel consumption is rated at 10.2L/100km.

Then there are the two RX 450hL models - the Luxury ($94,470) and the Sports Luxury ($111,070). 

These versions have a 3.5-litre V6 engine backed by a 50kW electric motor on the rear axle and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. The combined power output of the hybrid model is 230kW, but Lexus doesn’t specify a combined torque figure. It is AWD and uses a CVT with six-step ratios. Its fuel use is the big selling point - it uses a claimed 6.0L/100km. 

You might be wondering about what you get in the two trim grades - and here’s an rundown. 

Luxury versions have 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and daytime running lights (with auto on/off function and auto high-beam), front cornering lamps, rains sensing wipers, and a power tailgate with kick-to-open function. 

Inside, Luxury models have the new 12.3-inch touch screen infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a GPS navigation system (sat nav), DAB digital radio (as well as CD player and AM/FM radio), Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, a 12-speaker sound system, six USB ports (four front, two rear), wireless phone charging, smart key entry and push-button start, power adjustable steering column, climate control air-con and rear privacy glass (tinted windows).

Stepping up to the Sports Luxury adds adaptive “blade scan” LED headlights and 20-inch wheels, as well as adaptive variable suspension, plus leather interior trim, heating and cooling for the front seats. The rear seats have retractable sunshades.

Top-spec Sports Luxury versions include a Mark Levinson sound system with 15 speakers and a 360-degree camera display, but also add power-adjustable rear seats, second-row seat heating and semi-aniline leather upholstery.
