All In The Lights: 2020 Lexus RX Named Top Safety Pick by IIHS

January 13th, 2020 by

Headlights do make a difference.

Even with the bright lights of Southern Nevada, there are places where night vision is critical. In the darkest parts of our area, you need to see what’s out there to avoid making contact with it. Animals, road debris, potholes, and other road hazards can be clearer with the proper amount of light from your headlamp units.

Lexus developed a new generation of front headlamps for the 2020 RX and RX L. There are three LED projector lenses in each headlamp unit designed to emit the longest and brightest beam of light in normal low beam setting.

Each headlamp unit also works in concert with a set of cornering and fog lamps. Cornering lights are critical to see what is around the bend or when turning a corner towards home. At times when visibility is minimal, the new fog lamps on the 2020 RX will ensure a longer, brighter beam of light covering the immediate lower part of the road and beyond through the clouds.

Because of these excellent headlamps, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the 2020 Lexus RX its Top Safety Pick. The RX was given top marks for every collision test by the IIHS – including the Small Overlap and Moderate Overlap frontal collision tests. The IIHS also gave the 2020 RX its highest marks for using the LATCH child seat anchors.

On top of the new headlamps, the RX features the latest Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 suite of driver assistance features. Standard features include Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, All-Speed Dynamic Cruise Control, and Intelligent High Beams. In addition, the 2020 RX also received new features such as Low-light Pedestrian Detection and Daytime Bicyclist Detection, Lane Trace Assist, and Road Sign Assist.

The RX is designed to be the safest vehicle in its class. This is why the original luxury crossover/SUV is still one of the most popular vehicles on the road today. Lexus wants to always keep you safe, which is why we take the time to ensure the safest vehicles possible while you and your passengers enjoy the drive
