Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A reshuffling of features marks the 2019 model year for the Q7. All models now come with navigation, while mid-range Premium Plus trims now offer Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster, a 360-degree exterior camera system, LED head- and taillights, and a wireless smartphone charging pad as standard. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are now part of the Convenience package on all Q7 models. The optional 20-inch wheels now come with all-season run-flat tires and two new 21-inch wheel designs are now available.

PROS
Back-road athleticism,
beautiful and high-tech cabin,
three-row versatility.

CONS
Pricey with extras,
snug third row,
subtle styling gets lost in parking lots.

The 2017 Lexus RX Hybrid ranks 4 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Lexus RX 450h is a midsize SUV that delivers the luxury you expect from Lexus while also providing solid performance and excellent fuel economy. However, its small cargo area detracts from its utility.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Comfortable, spacious seats

Cons
Frustrating upgraded infotainment system
Small cargo space
