The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Lexus RX is plush and premium, and it delivers on that luxury impression, but it's not the over-the-top lavish expression some might seek. The 2013 Nissan Murano trades away some utility and space-efficiency in the name of style and refinement.
