The 2020 Lexus GX is a rugged luxury SUV for those few who want serious capability in a plush package.The 2020 Lexus GX 460 is probably the most capable off-roader valet parked in front of a swanky restaurant or an upscale shopping center, at least as long as there are no Range Rovers present.

Pros
Rugged personality
Safety tech now standard
Decent tow rig
Cushy ride

Cons
Funky tailgate
Lousy fuel economy
Trucky handling
Cramped row three

Lexus has given the GX a host of upgrades for the 2020 model year. Its sheetmetal benefits from a revised spindle grille, and its back door, emblem, and license-garnish finish have been updated. Triple-beam LED headlights are now standard, and Atomic Silver joins the palette of exterior colors. Within its cabin, the GX gets new detailing on its steering wheel and shift knob, along with two new rear-seat USB ports. Additionally, the driver-assistance features in the Lexus Safety System+ suite of amenities are now standard on all models.

Pros
Superb off-road skills,
long list of standard driver-assistance features,
peaceful cabin.

Cons
Uncomfortable second-row seats,
rivals models offer more cargo space,
poor fuel economy.

For 2021 Wireless Apple CarPlay is now standard.

Pros
Quick acceleration regardless of engine choice
Most athletic and engaging SUV in the class
Surprisingly comfortable and composed ride
Easy to customize thanks to a long list of options

Cons
Less rear legroom and cargo capacity than many competitors
Options and packages boost the price quickly
Four-cylinder engine is much thirstier than those in rivals

By: 
edmunds.com

For 2021, the only notable update to the Macan Turbo is the addition of Apple CarPlay, which was previously absent. Otherwise, everything carries over unchanged except for the base price, which rises by $1000.

Pros
Thrilling twin-turbo V-6 powertrain,
clairvoyant handling characteristics,
unrivaled personalization options.

Cons
Some rivals are quicker and more powerful,
stingy back-seat space,
can easily cost six figures.

The 2021 Porsche Macan is unranked in Luxury Compact SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Porsche Macan's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 42 pieces of research and data.

Pros

Muscular engine lineup
Quality cabin materials
