The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus RX 350 and RX 400h deliver sensible luxury and excellent comfort -- boldness not necessarily included (or desired). The 2015 Nissan Murano lures in empty-nesters with its flamboyant new design, then hooks them with just the right mix of confident performance.
