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: 
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

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

By:

The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties.

Pros
Nimble, sedan-like handling
Excellent interior space and storage
Great turbo-6 powertrain
Standard all-wheel drive
M40i a blast to drive

Cons
Base 6.5-inch infotainment display
Forward-collision warnings an option
World’s most expensive Apple CarPlay
Off-road? More all-weather

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Though it has sporty handling, powerful engines, and roomy seats, the fully redesigned 2018 BMW X3 is only a midpack luxury compact SUV. Its drawbacks include a higher-than-average starting price and fewer standard features than the competition.

Pros
Agile handling
Strong engine lineup
Spacious cargo area and cabin
Premium interior

Cons
Above-average starting price
Minimal standard luxury features
