Expert Quotes:

Softly padded but well-shaped, the front seats offer enough support to make an all-day drive comfortable.

Rear seat legroom is generous and back seat passengers are treated as nicely as those in the front

a suspension that can churn a washboard road into butter and enough soundproofing to stifle a passing garbage truck
New York Times

The RX 350 is comfortable and quiet on the road and has Lexus's typical sensory-deprivation chamber inside

The layout of the 2011 Lexus RX models is perfect for passengers, and there's no doubt why this is a realtor's favorite for touring around in comfort. The front seats have an odd contouring that digs into shoulder blades, and headroom overall is surprisingly tight, but the optional seats in the RX now have length-adjustable lower cushions, which taller drivers will love for longer distances. Back seats have adult-size contouring—and you can even fit three across when needed—while the rear seats fold down for larger items and there's underfloor storage for smaller items you'd prefer to keep out of sight.

Interior materials are, for the most part, up to Lexus's high standards. New OLED gauges, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and plenty of soft-touch surfaces provide a rather lavish look, and the upgraded wood trim that's optional in the RX 350 and included in the RX 450h brings a better-coordinated, more timeless look.

Otherwise, the Lexus RX has the same understated but competent and comfortable feel. Ride motions are damped very well, and the ride is about the same between the standard 18-inch wheels and available 19-inchers. You hear the engine when accelerating—a surprise in a Lexus—but that might be because the cabin is so well-isolated from wind and road noise.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
