New & Old Lexus RX Side-by-Side


It’s always fun to see a previous generation model beside its upcoming replacement, and Lexus had a display at the 2023 RX debut that did just that:

This comparison accentuates the difference in ride height — the new RX sits much lower to the ground, and the switch to color-coded fenders really tightens up the wheel gap. Even so, even with the sculpted sides and the new front, the model resemblance is clear and the design is mostly evolutionary.

(This change mirrors what we saw with the latest Toyota Highlander — the more textured side profile, the lower ride height, and a design that refines the older model.)

Thanks Paul!

Hmmm. I do wonder what this means in the grand scheme of things in the next big BOF product up for launch in a years worth of time.

LX=Rumored to be REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN, Bentley in form.function/ Actual design was evolutionary with the interior rumors somewhat panning out.
NX=Evolutionary
RX=Evolutionary
GX=Rumored to be Revolutionary design, thats been fundamentally changed.....?

Are all RX lower to the ground or is it just a certain F-Sport package (F-Sport Handling vs F-Sport Performance)?
