Five-passenger crossovers with luxury nameplates are usually smaller than the 2010 Lexus RX 350.
The Lincoln MKX is in the same size class and has a unique take on upscale accommodations to go with its sizable curb weight and mediocre cargo room.
The Cadillac SRX will be reinvented for the 2010 model year as a smaller five-seat crossover with V-6 power; stay tuned for more from TheCarConnection.com.
The most surprising competitor to the Lexus RX is the Nissan Murano, with its urbane good looks and flexible V-6 performance making up for its lackluster transmission, cargo space, and dealer experience.
