Vehicles with Consumer Reviews
All 2015 Lexus RX models include a backup camera as standard. Also, the standard audio system gains a 7-inch touch screen and ups the speaker count from 9 to 12 while replacing the in-dash 6-disc CD changer with a single-disc unit.
Changes for the 2014 Lexus RX are limited to some package upgrades and the availability of Siri Eyes Free technology. Available with iPhone 4S and above, this technology enables Siri to voice-control your music selection, text messages and navigation all through the car's audio system.
Like other Lexus vehicles, the RX's front end is now graced with the sportier "spindle grille," and LED running lights and a power rear liftgate are standard. The RX F Sport is a new trim level with stiffer suspension and 8-speed transmission.
The 2015 RX is the latest in Lexus' lineage of midsize luxury crossover SUVs, a category the Lexus RX invented nearly two decades ago. Since then, a wave of competitors such as the Cadillac SRX, Acura RDX, BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Infiniti QX50 have arrived. Some offer sleeker looks, sportier handling and more sophisticated technology, but the RX continues to be the benchmark in terms of reliability, resale value, versatility and comfort. In addition to its plush driving manners, the RX stands out for its smart use of space and cargo-carrying ability. Buyers seeking sharper driving manners can find it in the F Sport version of the RX, while those with a priority on fuel efficiency can look to the Lexus RX hybrid model.
