The 2020 RX exterior retains a powerful and sporty appearance, while the character line that runs from the front of the vehicle to the rear has been improved, giving the RX's overall appearance exceptional flow and consistency.

The result is an elegant, dynamic exterior that emphasizes Lexus' new design language.
