The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Lexus RX gives up on old standbys like somber style and silence, and casts its lot with a more rowdy crowd. The 2020 Nissan Murano is stylish and sophisticated, but its powertrain and practicality leave something to be desired.
