Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Like its recently reborn Range Rover siblings, the Discovery switches to aluminium construction – 85% of the body-in-white is made of the stuff – which means big weight savings; the lightest Disco 5 is 480kg lighter than the lightest 4 and stiffer too, although it still pushes the scales to 2.1 tonnes. It's no flyweight.There’s magnesium in the nose, higher-strength aluminium in key safety zones and steel subframes; Land Rover says the latter mean more load space and a better centre of gravity.
Rear end aside, arguably, it looks good on the road, the interior is comfortable and smart as well as life-swallowingly practical and the driving experience is fit to deal with almost anything you can throw at it. It’s far from being a cheap car, but it’s also ready to be your only car.

The 2018 Lexus RX 350L is an all-new model.The amount of standard equipment on the RX 350L is impressive, but we recommend getting the Luxury trim level. On top of standard equipment such as tri-zone climate control, LED lighting and a power-folding third-row seat, the Luxury trim level adds heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery, and heated second-row seats.

PROS
Impeccable cabin finished with top-quality materials and construction
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load luggage and groceries

CONS
Optional tech interface is clever but distracting to use while driving
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Third-row space is tight for anyone other than small children

Don’t let the RX’s daring style fool you—it’s still the plush-riding crossover it’s always been, but it’s also a technological leap forward from its segment-defining predecessor. A 295-hp V-6, eight-speed automatic, and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive is optional.

Pros
Quiet operation,
cushy ride,
comfortable for five.

Cons
Alien styling,
miserly cargo hold,
uncomfortable for seven.
