In this competitive set, every rival has something that helps them stand apart.
Look to the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class if you're seeking a wide range of engines and options, which allows for a lot of custom tailoring.
The Volvo XC60 is brand-new this year, and looks positively austere next to the RX; its performance is strong but aloof, its cabin an ode to interior-design magazines and the people that palaver over them.
The Acura MDX is a standout for its polish and its value, plus it has three rows of seats.
Lincoln and Cadillac both field highly competitive crossovers in the MKX and the XT5, and they're a little cheaper than the Lexus RX.
We wouldn’t shop an RX without driving a Nissan Murano.
Scrape away all the lovely Lexus hand-holding, and the Murano delivers a much more serene interior and better-executed exterior.
