Lexus RX Overview

The RX is a refined, quiet, and plush SUV. It rides comfortably and has a very well-finished interior. But handling is lackluster, and the steering gives little feedback. Emergency handling is ultimately secure. The 3.5-liter V6 provides strong acceleration and a commendable 21 mpg overall. The RX 450h hybrid got an impressive 26 mpg overall. The optional navigation system includes a mouse-like controller atop the console; it maneuvers through simple menus and gives tactile feedback, but ordinary tasks take too much attention and the driver's eyes from the road. The rear seat is roomy, but the sloped styling impairs rear visibility and cargo volume.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
