This is the brand new Lexus RX! Mat's got his hands on this mid-sized Japanese SUV to see if it has what it requires to compete with exceptional German competitors like the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne.
Well for starters, it certainly looks the part from the outside. Lexus has actually followed the current pattern of having the brand's name written on the back of the cars and truck, but regretfully it's likewise accompanied by a variety of fake vents. Along the side, the vehicle looks quite outstanding, with a variety of creases and littles chrome trim. Then around the front, there may be more fake vents, however the big new grille stands out and remarkable.
On the inside, the RX is super stylish. Soft touch products and leather are found throughout the cabin, and there's a decent amount of usefulness to save your items.
