The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
While the 2014 Lexus RX may not be over-the-top luxurious, it's a plush, lavish crossover that delivers the right premium impression. The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.
