The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Lexus RX seeks a luxury-crossover edge with an eye-grabbing shape, but performance toes the usual line. The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class doesn’t compromise on interior space or in performance, though the V-8s are taking a year off.
