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

Hyundai is on a good track. For starters, the new ute looks more grown-up and handsome. The rear glass is more vertical, a boon to headroom for the sort-of-optional third-row seats (more on that later) and cargo space. With shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase, greater length, and slightly more girth than the ’18 Santa Fe Sport, interior space is up, too. Hyundai increased visibility by employing what it claims is 41 percent more glass area than in the outgoing Santa Fe Sport to nurture the target markets of empty nesters and families moving up from a sedan.

Pros
Sharp looks,
bigger inside and out than the Sport it replaces,
packed with features.

Cons
Some low-rent plastics inside;
small fuel-economy bump;
so which one is this, again?

By:

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a convincing crossover SUV with room for families and cargo.

Pros
Smooth ride
Compelling value trims with plenty of features
Standard active safety features
Spacious interior
Sharp style

Cons
No available options from the factory
8-speed automatic could use a finishing touch
Average fuel economy
Thin-feeling cloth and leather

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is redesigned
New interior and exterior look
New two-row design
Part of the fourth Hyundai Santa Fe generation introduced for 2019

Pros
Abundant standard features for the money
High-quality interior materials
Generous warranty coverage
Several standard and optional active safety features

Cons
High-quality interior materials
Base 2.4-liter engine's power and mpg are subpar
