The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Lexus RX gives up on old standbys like somber style and silence, and casts its lot with a more rowdy crowd. The 2021 Toyota Venza brings an upscale flair to the compact crossover class to go with its efficient and reasonably powerful hybrid powertrain.
