2022 Lexus RX vs. Its Competition

2022 Lexus RX 450hL
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Like the RX, the Acura MDX can seat seven and comes as a hybrid, but the MDX offers more space.

The Lincoln Nautilus has a refined interior and cushy seats and makes the Cadillac look like it should be wearing a Chevy or Buick badge.

The Cadillac XT5 doesn’t have the same level of standard features but is the dark sport jacket that can be used on any occasion.

Spartan but alluring style graces the Volvo XC60, but the in-car tech can aggravate like the RX.

The Infiniti QX60 wears revamped looks this year and has an improved drivetrain; the smaller QX50 matches up with the five-seat RX better.
