Lexus SUV size guide

Lexus SUV sizes

The arrival of the all-new, all-electric Lexus RZ 450e (below) at the end of 2022 means that Lexus will have expanded its range of petrol-electric hybrid and battery electric SUVs to five distinct models: UX, NX, RZ, RX and RX L. Read on below for our Lexus SUV size guide.

Each model is identified by a descriptive, two-letter acronym – for example, UX is a stylised contraction of Urban Crossover. However, these acronyms do not necessarily offer an immediate indication of the relative size of each model. But we realise that understanding their proportions is vital in determining which Lexus SUV is the best possible fit for your needs and lifestyle… or even your garage.

We therefore hope that the following Lexus SUV sizes table is helpful in illustrating the comparative dimensions of each model.

Lexus SUV sizes:

UX 4495mm 1840mm 1540mm 2640mm 283 to 1231 litres 
NX 4660mm 1865mm 1670mm 2690mm 521 to 1436 litres 
RZ 4805mm 1895mm 1635mm 2850mm TBC 
RX 4890mm 1895mm 1685mm 2790mm 453 to 924 litres 
RX L5000mm 1895mm 1700mm 2790mm 176 to 1656 litres 

The Lexus UX is positioned as the smallest and most urban-friendly model in our crossover range. It is more compact than the mid-size NX, which in turn is smaller than the full-size RX (below left) and seven-seat RX L (below right). Straddling the space between mid-size and full-size is the all-new RZ, though thanks to its EV-specific architecture it has a lower height and a longer wheelbase than both the NX and RX.

The hierarchy of self-charging hybrid powertrains is reflective of each model’s relative size. The Lexus UX is equipped with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine; the Lexus NX is equipped with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine; and the Lexus RX and RX L is equipped with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine.

Similarly, the all-electric UX 300e is equipped with a 54 kWh battery and 201bhp motor, while the larger RZ 450e is equipped with a 71 kWh battery and motors that can deliver 309bhp combined.


  1. Really hoping the RZ has interior room equal to or greater than the RX as I plan to trade my LS 460 for the electric RZ in 2024

  2. When is the new RX being launched in the UK and do you have any information on its specification

    1. Hello David,
      We do not have any information on this at the moment.
      Please keep an eye on our blog and social media channels for the latest information.

  3. How does the UX compare in dimensions to the CT200H especially the boot size? When are prices due?

    1. Hello Bryan,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The UX 250h has approximately a 25l larger boot than the CT.

    1. Hello Tim,
      Thanks for your comment. The estimated ETAs are as follows:
      NX Hybrid – Q3 2023.
      NX Plug-in – January 2023.
      RX – October 2022.
      RZ – Not available at this time.
      We hope this helps.

  4. Are the widths above excluding wing mirrors? If so, do you have the widths including them, as that makes it much easier to compare to my current car.

    1. Hello Andrew, thanks for your comment.

      This size guide includes the wing mirrors in the measurements.
