Seattle drivers who are ready to step up to a new luxury SUV are understandably drawn to the Lexus line. The 2020 Lexus NX has been offered since 2015, and it is the entry-level model that may deliver everything that you are looking for in a new compact luxury crossover SUV. The new Lexus RX is another excellent option to consider. It has been popular since its introduction in 1998, and it is currently a midsize luxury crossover SUV. In addition to these differences, the 2020 NX and the 2020 RX stand apart in many other ways that you should be aware of before taking your new Lexus home. During a visit to Lexus of Seattle, you can speak with one of our well-informed sales reps to get answers to your trim-specific questions.


Both of these luxury crossover SUVs are available with several powertrains across their well-designed trims. The NX comes with your choice of two gas engines and one hybrid variation. One of the gas options is a turbo 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine featuring an automatic transmission, and offering 235 horsepower. If you prefer a hybrid powertrain, you can benefit from a battery pack mated with a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder powertrain. The combined horsepower for the hybrid option is 194. Three gas powertrains and one hybrid variation are available for the 2020 Lexus RX. One of these is a V6, 3.5-liter gas engine with 385 horsepower. If you opt for the hybrid NX powertrain, you can appreciate 208 combined horsepower.


The NX and the RX for 2020 are unequivocally stunning from front to rear. The latest Lexus NX has a smaller stance than the RX and displays unique design elements. Its LED headlights have a triangular shape, and their placement strategically highlights the bolt-like turning signals directly below them. A mesh grille further enhances the front of the NX with a bowtie shape, stunning air intake vents, and foglamps. The sides are well-contoured, and the hood has crisp yet demure character lines. This is compared to the larger RX, which has more aggressive LED headlights with an elongated, angled presence. The shape of the grille and air intake vents is unique, and it has an edgy personality across the hood and sides.


The RX has a few additional standard features with a trim-by-trim comparison against the NX. However, both crossover SUVs come with the exceptional comfort features and advanced technologies that you may want in your next vehicle. Some of these are wireless Internet access, dual display screens, leather seating, heating and memory functions in the front row, a hands-free tailgate release, Apple CarPlay, a Mark Levinson sound system, a navigation system, and so much more!
