I'm glad I am not the only one to see minivan phantoms from certain angles of the RXL.I can't put my finger on it, but the exterior looks more like a minivan to me than it did before. It actually looks sort of like the Honda Odyssey in some way. Perhaps the sloping front end, swept back roofline, FWD proportions and massive overhangs?
Overall, these updates are nice and help to clean up the design.
TNGA RX can't come fast enough
Removing stalk is probably one of the worst ergonomic decisions they ever made.I really wish they refreshed the instrument cluster and steering wheel. It’s a shame that in 2020, we are still using Toyota’s cruise control stalk.

My thoughts exactly. The added touchscreen function is OK and the screen moved forward, but just try to imagine in a current RX: there is no way that the screen can be close enough to get comfortable access to the touch function without a complete dash redesign. Also the extra surface material to close the gap ruins the premiumness. Good additions though are the smartphone holder and added usb ports (which now makes 6 in total!).Touchscreen option is welcome addition but it's an instance where you have to sit and try, I can tell it won't be comfortable to reach but I don't think intention was to prioritize hand touch over touchpad. Glad they have touchpad this time instead of the analog stick. Only probable drawback is that screen is not further down the dash but form what I can tell not by much. Unfortunately that surface on top of the center stack that flows into instrument cluster hood is aesthetically ruined now because they put on a cap on top of it to close the hole.
