2020 lexus ux vs 2020 lexus nx trim comparison specs features

Luxury SUVs have taken the world by storm, and the 2020 Lexus UX and 2020 Lexus NX SUVs are impressive examples of why customers are picking this route for their everyday vehicle. With the NX being a top safety and security choice, and the UX’s 5-star total safety rating, both are impressive selections for keeping your family members safe\secure when driving. Both also come standard-packed with contemporary tech and a substantial list of optional upgrade alternatives.

Design Highlights

The 2020 Lexus UX and NX are part of the brand-new time of SUVs that incorporate the comfort of driving a car with the utility of a big SUV. To say these models are giving you a little bit of everything would be a bit of an understatement. Both versions come standard fitted with LED headlights and taillamps, with the option to update to superior auto-leveling headlights and foglights. The UX comes standard with 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels with dark gray machined coating, while the NX comes standard with 17in. 10-spoke alloy wheels. Both models come with a readily available power moonroof.


The 2020 Lexus UX 200 comes standard-equipped with a 169 horsepower, 151 lb-ft torque 2.0-litre In-Line 4 cylinder engine that gives more than enough power to keep the slim body of the UX accelerating at passing speeds. The available 2.0L gas/electric option on the UX 250H still puts out 181 horsepower and gives prolonged freeway fuel economy of 38 miles per gallon (source: lexus.com). It’s slightly more powerful sister, the 2020 Lexus NX 300 comes standard with a 235 horsepower, 258 lb-ft torque 2.0-litre Inline turbo 4cyl. for those who call for just a bit more performance during their commutes.
It also comes readily available in a gas/electric version, the NX 300h with a 194 horsepower, 152 lb-ft torque 2.5L turbocharged In-Line 4-cylinder engine, it still makes a total 31 miles per gallon (source: lexus.com). The UX model uses a typical 10-speed direct-shift continuously variable transmission, while the NX follows through with their turbo driving experience with the 6-speed sequential shift automatic electronically regulated transmission with intelligence and paddle shifters.


A modern-day, high-end SUV just wouldn’t be complete without a state-of-the-art centerpiece. The UX gives you a standard 7.0-inch color multimedia screen while the Lexus NX comes with a slightly bigger 8.0in. color multimedia display. Both offer you the choice to update to a NAV system with a 10.3-inch split screen multimedia display. All systems come loaded with Amazon Alexa, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto so regardless of your mobile platform, you’ll be immediately able to utilize your individual collection of music, address book, and other features easily. When it pertains to dependable luxury, Lexus holds the crown, and the 2020 Lexus UX and NX are beaming examples of just how they’ve been so successful at attaining that status. Now, the only question is, “Would you like turbos with that?”

I have purchased 2 vehicles from this dealership. They always take excellent care of me and their prices are always fair. I like this dealership more than the Albuquerque store.

Chris Ortega was extremely attentive and caring for someone who required a full education on specifics about her new Lexis hybrid, He was super patient through three tutoring sessions that I requested, addressing each concern and, in every case, giving practical solutions. Also he worked hard to make the financial part acceptable. Soon after, I had to drive to California, had a great trip knowing what to expect and how to deal with whatever might come up. Rest assured that he is putting out exactly what you would hope Lexis stands for!

2018 IS300 Chris Ortega is Phenomenal. Words cannot express his knowledge of LEXUS in every aspect. I cannot have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend LEXUS but most of all the patience, intelligence, and kindness CHRIS exhumes. I Definitely will be referring LEXUS and Chris Ortega! Thank you for making my Dreams come true!

Chris continuously went above and beyond to satisfy what I wanted in a car buying experience including driving the car from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, delivering it to my front door, walked me through setting up my phone AND thru the car features.

I told Chris I needed a car, somewhat serious but not committed. He showed me an option I actually really liked, asked me what kind of payment I was looking for, and made it happen for me! Very professional and easy to work with. Good personality that keeps it real and made it feel like he was there for me, not the other way around. Keep up the good work, awesome employee!
