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:

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

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 GMC Yukon XL receives only minor changes. The Denali version comes with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that should slightly improve fuel economy and acceleration. Other changes include a new chrome grille design and a new Denali Ultimate package with 22-inch wheels, a sunroof and a large helping of tech add-ons.

pros
Seats up to nine passengers
Plenty of cargo capacity, even with all the seats deployed
Can tackle rough terrain when fitted with four-wheel drive
High towing ratings

cons
Size, weight and length make it unwieldy around town
Slow gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
Cargo space utility is limited by high load floor

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Safety alert driver's seat available
Quiet cabin
Spacious interior
Easier-than-expected maneuverability

Cons
Trucklike ride with body roll in corners
Small cargo space behind third row (regular-length Yukon)
Interior design too similar to Chevrolet siblings
Some dashboard buttons could be larger
