The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The new 2016 Lexus RX is edgier and more focused than before—more of a style-conscious statement of indulgence—when your luxury car also has to be a very practical everyday driver. Smooth, quiet and comfortable, the 2016 Nissan Murano is a stylish choice for empty-nesters who aren't concerned with sportiness or off-road capability.
