Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder should be on the list for shoppers looking for a large crossover. The Pathfinder is highly functional, but not entirely interesting.

Pros
Comfortable seating all the way around
Comparable fuel economy to rivals
Common-sense standard safety features
Adequate power

Cons
Relatively anodyne interior style
Coarse V-6
Base models are spartan
Low-slung second row seats

After last year's significant updates, the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder offers a few minor changes, although one is notable: Automatic emergency braking now comes standard on all trim levels. Other enhancements include a rear-seat reminder system, additional USB charging ports, and expanded availability of the Pathfinder's Midnight Edition appearance package and adaptive cruise control system.

PROS
V6 engine delivers strong acceleration with decent fuel economy
Third-row seat is easy to access
Offers robust towing capacity
Automatic emergency braking is standard on every trim level

CONS
Top trim's ride quality may be too firm for some drivers
Third-row space is less roomy than in some rivals
Cargo capacity and small-item storage is below average

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

Cons
Frustrating infotainment system
Subpar cargo capacity

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
