Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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:

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

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

The Audi Q5 is certainly the segment's most modern offering, delivering a high degree of technology, comfort, and conservative style.
The 2018 Audi Q5 is a five-seater compact crossover SUV that's all-new for 2018 and squares off against competitors like the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and the Jaguar F-Pace.

Pros
High-tech interior
Terrific ride quality
Refined powertrain
Standard all-wheel drive
Good interior packaging

Cons
Styling is derivative
Tech requires acclimation
Not particularly sporty
Some rivals have more personality
