The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners. The 2017 Nissan Murano is smooth and polished—and that may be just the ticket for buyers who want a high seating position and the availability of all-wheel drive.
