Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lexus RX Hybrid ranked #3 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus RX Hybrid has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Roomy, comfortable seats

Cons
Frustrating infotainment system
Subpar cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Lexus RX 450h is less expensive than last year, but some features that were standard are now optional. These include the sunroof, roof rails, heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, navigation system and blind-spot monitoring. The new Premium package adds some of these features back in, while others are sold as stand-alone options.

PROS
Impeccably crafted and attractively designed cabin
Excellent fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Supremely quiet
Appealing ride and handling balance with F Sport package

CONS
Relatively slow acceleration
Below-average cargo capacity
Optional tech interface is distracting to use

By: 
edmunds.com

RX 450hL hybrids have a lower-output V-6, batteries, and motors that power the rear wheels for a through-the-road, all-wheel-drive powertrain. The continuously variable transmission saps the life out of its delivery, but it’s smooth.

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 2018 BMW X6 delivers eye-catching style and good driving dynamics, but is it still an SUV?
The 2018 BMW X6 four-door SUV is evolution, baby. It's a tall-riding crossover with a sleek roofline and the wild-child compared to the X5 from which it is based.

Pros
Eye-catching style
Strong engines
Refined interior
Decadent options

Cons
Compromised rear seat
Tight cargo area
Hugely expensive
Not really all that fun

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Unrestrained styling, raucous power, and surprising agility define the X6—although its fastback design limits rear-seat room and cargo space. A 300-hp 3.0-liter turbo inline-six with an eight-speed automatic can be ordered with either rear- or all-wheel drive. An audacious 445-hp 4.4-liter turbo V-8 is optional and comes only with all-wheel drive. The standard Driving Dynamics Control system allows for five distinct driving modes, and an available air suspension provides even more fine-tuning.

Pros
Lovely turbo-six thrust,
wonderful automatic transmission,
handsome interior.

Cons
Unlovely styling,
ponderous handling.

By: 
caranddriver.com

We'd maximize the sporting aspect with a bit of financial restraint, and opt for the X6 sDrive35i M Sport Design, equipped with Executive Tier and M adaptive suspension. The 3.0-liter turbocharged engine drives just the rear wheels to minimize weight, while the performance tires and adaptive suspension maximize dynamics.

PROS
Engines provide strong acceleration
Comfortable and quiet ride
Quality interior with comfortable front seats

CONS
Limited rear headroom
Hard to see out the back
Sloping roofline cuts down cargo space
