Where other SUVs try to blend sporty handling and voracious power with their utilitarian ways, the 2015 Lexus RX makes no apologies for what it is: a comfortable everyday cruiser....
... The suspension is soft, allowing it to soak up road imperfections. This makes for a plush ride, and we don't suggest trying to corner too quickly as that isn't the RX's forte (though the F Sport does firm things up a bit). The 2015 RX's cabin is well-insulated and quiet, and visibility is very good from the driver's seat. The standard V6 engine's 270 horsepower is enough to get this midsize SUV onto the freeway without drama (0-60 mph comes in 7.7 seconds), but again, outright performance is not the RX's domain. If it's yours, rivals ranging from the Audi Q5 to the
Volvo XC60 will be happy to serve up potent alternatives.
