2021 Lexus RX – The 2020 model After undergoing a thorough refresh, the Lexus RX L crossover SUV enters the 2021 model year with minimal changes. Still, it’s not completely devoid of differences. Lexus introduced the Black Line Special Edition package for the F Sport models. It comes with black exterior accents, black 20-inch wheels, blue stitching for the leather interior, and either an Ultra White or Grecian Water (medium blue) paint job. More notably, ordering the Black Line Special Edition package also adds a two-piece set of Zero Halliburton luggage. Elsewhere, the RX receives a new interior color Glazed Caramel which replaces Noble Brown. Blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and power-folding exterior mirrors are all now standard. A wireless smartphone charging pad is now optional and the Performance package has been rechristened as the Handling package.
The 2021 RX 350 returns above-average fuel economy for a luxury midsize SUV. It gets between 18 and 20 mpg in the city and between 25 and 27 mpg on the highway. All-wheel-drive and RX L versions are just slightly less efficient than their front-wheel-drive and regular-wheelbase counterparts.
The F Sport models look the coolest, in our opinion, so we’d go with a lightly optioned RX350 F Sport. Of the RX’s many option packages, we’d keep it simple and add only the Navigation package; it features a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, in-dash navigation, a DVD/CD player, and a 12-speaker audio system. Lexus hasn’t released official pricing yet, so we’ve estimated that above.

Engine and Performance
Buyers can have their RX in two distinct flavors: Models badged RX350 are powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 while the RX450h comes with the V-6 plus two electric motors. Our RX350 test vehicle was equipped with all-wheel drive and managed an adequate—but slow for the segment—run of 6.9 seconds from zero to 60 mph. The RX450h is one of the segment’s few hybrids but it, too, required longer than average to reach 60 mph from rest. What the RX does best is ride comfortably; it irons out rough stretches of road and delivers a compliant ride. The cabin remains quiet and well isolated from the road, making the RX an excellent long-distance cruiser.
2021 Lexus RX Interior
Adding intrigue to the interior, available ambient LED lighting brightens
and dims in a coordinated series to welcome the driver into the RX. Soft
lighting also illuminates the area surrounding the vehicle the moment you approach, for added visibility and peace of mind.
Taking luxury further, the available heated and ventilated front seats offer heaters and fans in the seat cushions to provide optimum comfort, regardless of the weather. Power-folding, heated rear outboard seats are also available in the RX 350 and RX 450h.
Customize the climate around you. Individual settings allow the driver and front passenger to adjust their preferred temperatures. Plus, the RX 350L and RX 450hL feature dedicated climate control for passengers in the third row. To help ensure the cabin stays fresh, and available smog-sensing climate-control system automatically switches into recirculation mode if it senses high levels of pollutants outside.
