2020 Lexus RX vs. Its Competition

2020 Lexus RX
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Lexus RX squares off against some of the most popular high-end vehicles on the road today.

The Cadillac XT5 and Lincoln Nautilus represent the home team here.

The XT5's subtle style earns it points, but it's dull to drive.

The Nautilus is an update of the Lincoln MKX and it's attractive with a comfortable interior.

The Acura MDX matches the RX's third row and hybrid options, making it a fierce rival.

The calming Volvo XC60 is full of safety and convenience tech and is a must-see for crossover SUV shoppers.

If it's just five you need to seat, the Nissan Murano is a budget-saver with a more upmarket feel than its badge suggests.

Quick Specs
6.3
The 2020 Lexus RX gives up on old standbys like somber style and silence, and casts its lot with a more rowdy crowd.
6.8
The 2020 Acura MDX is a stately three-row family crossover that has aged well.
6.6
It's still a Lincoln MKX (so it's still a Ford Edge), but the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus manages to improve in the most important ways, with more style and technology.
7.3
The 2019 Volvo XC60 is the full picture: advanced powertrains, gorgeous interior, subtle exterior.
