With credit for essentially starting the mid-size luxury crossover segment in the late 1990s, the Lexus RX has been a huge success for the brand.
Its current competition includes the Lincoln MKX, which offers good interior room, a strong V-6 engine and MyLincoln Touch, a high-tech (albeit occasionally buggy) infotainment system.
The Cadillac SRX looks great inside and out, and its 3.6-liter V-6 makes it a very similar package to the RX.
We like the Volvo XC60's Scandinavian design, offerings elegant style in a slightly more compact package.
On the more affordable side, the Nissan Murano is a solid choice; its V-6 offers good performance, though it's a little smaller inside than the RX, and the continuously variable transmission (CVT) will win some shoppers, but lose others.
