If you’re set on a moderately sized luxury SUV, but put off by the stiff ride common on so many luxury cars these days, take the 2014 Lexus RX for a spin. A smooth ride, good handling and a whisper-quiet interior make this the perfect choice, as do the RX’s excellent resale reputation.
Having given birth to the midsize luxury crossover SUV segment, the Lexus RX continues to reign supreme, offering a combination of quality, luxury, reliability and resale that buyers flock to again and again. Despite a huge onslaught of competitors, none seem to have nailed the RX’s formula for success. Fresh from a complete redo last year, the RX for 2014 continues to impress with its comfortable ride and finely crafted cabin filled with numerous luxury amenities. The spacious cabin is more flexible than in any sedan, and the tall ride height provides a commanding view of the road yet isn’t so high up that it requires a stepladder.
Good handling shouldn’t come at the expense of a comfortable ride, which is exactly why we like the 2014 Lexus RX so much. Rough patches and expansion joints are quickly dispatched, yet the RX’s steering and ability to negotiate turns are still well within the limits of reason.
POWER REAR DOOR – When you’re juggling groceries, kids and keys, you quickly run out of limbs and digits for opening doors. For the 2014, a power opening-and-closing rear door is standard on the Lexus RX. If only those groceries would load and unload themselves with the touch of a button.
MUTE THE WEATHERMAN – Active Torque Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is a high-tech system that delivers exceptional grip. Under normal conditions, engine power is directed to the front wheels to maximize fuel efficiency. But whenever sensors detect traction loss, up to 50% of power will be reallocated from front to rear wheels to help maintain grip.
The Lexus RX 350 has a smooth ride, brisk engine performance, and a cozy interior with ample cargo space. It also has superb safety and reliability ratings, as well as low ownership costs.
US NEWS: The 2014 Lexus RX 350’s #1 ranking is based on its score within the 2014 Luxury Midsize SUVs category. It was the winner of our 2014 Best Luxury 2-Row Midsize SUV for the Money award and the winner of our 2014 Best Luxury 2-Row SUV for Families award.
The Lexus RX 350 is an absolute pleasure to get into every morning, comforting in a hectic family routine and offering support around every corner.
The rear seats are split 40/20/40 and fold flat, expanding the cargo area from 40 cubic feet up to 80.3 cubic feet. These dimensions handily beat the other five-seat models mentioned. The RX’s volume is actually within a few cubic feet of the three-row models — both with their third rows folded and with both rows folded.
You can fold the RX 350’s seats from the seatback itself or from the cargo area, where you can pull a spring-mounted lever that makes the seats fold down.
IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT!
