2020 Lexus RX: Paddle Shifters Standard and More
The one question we're probably asked more than any is: what are the best three-row vehicles on the market? And we have a list, depending on how much you want to spend and what kinds of amenities you want.
The Lexus RX line is the answer for you if you're looking for a luxurious three-row SUV with gorgeous exterior color choices, walnut wood trim, and the latest safety features.
While the RX did not undergo a major update this year, there are some notable changes. There are five trims available: RX, RX F SPORT, RXL, RX Hybrid, and RXL Hybrid. The L, in this case, indicates the longer version, with 4.5 inches more in length. The RX 350 models (gas powered) are all available in FWD or AWD, and the RX 450 models (hybrids) are standard with AWD.
If you choose the RX 350L or RX 450L, you may opt for three rows. It's not super roomy back there, though. To compare, the Toyota Highlander measures 27.7 inches of legroom in its third row, and the Lexus RX has 23.5, a difference of more than four inches.
MSRP for the RX 350: $44,150 - $51,750
