Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

We're torn between the EX and the EX-L. The latter has desirable luxury features such as leather upholstery, a programmable power liftgate and a premium audio system. We liked it enough to buy one for our long-term test fleet.

PROS
Turbocharged engine delivers a rare combination of thrift and zest
Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity for this class
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

CONS
Optional navigation system isn't as reliable as expected
Base LX's engine is weaker and thirstier than the turbo
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob

The 2018 Honda CR-V ranked #1 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Honda CR-V has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Cavernous cargo area
High-quality cabin
Supple ride
Good crash test scores

Cons
Few standard features

By:

The 2018 Honda CR-V may be light on personality, but this compact crossover checks off every other box. It’s a very smart choice.

Pros
Does nearly everything right
Exceptionally roomy interior
Good value
Lots of safety gear
Upscale feel

Cons
Odd styling
LX lacks important features
Hardly fun to drive
No high-performance version, if that matters

The 2018 Lexus RX 350 ranked #9 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus RX 350 has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 33 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Coddling ride
Many standard and available features

Cons
Low safety scores for class
Less cargo room than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

The RX 350 is available in just two versions, and we think it's worth spending a bit more and upgrading to the F Sport trim. The F Sport, despite its name, isn't as sporty as some vehicles in the class such as the Porsche Macan, but it does bundle several desirable options together, including the adaptive suspension dampers and heated and ventilated front seats. The F Sport also gives the RX a more aggressive look and 20-inch wheels as standard.

PROS
Attractive cabin with top-quality materials and construction
Ride quality makes almost any road feel smooth
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load luggage and groceries

CONS
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Optional tech interface is distracting to use while driving

By: 
edmunds.com

The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners.

Pros
Bracing design
Swift acceleration
Broad range of road manners
Hybrid's high gas mileage
High-tech safety standard

Cons
That polarizing sheet metal
Gets expensive in a hurry
Firm F Sport ride
Gas-only mileage just average
