The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus GX can go where few others can, but how many luxury car owners really take their SUVs off-road? The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg is an expensive way to purchase a mainstream brand's vehicle, but it's more luxurious than many of its mainstream competitors.
