2023 Lexus RX vs. Its Competition

2023 Lexus RX
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The larger Acura MDX seats seven and has a sporty Type S variant, but it lacks the range of powertrains and electrification as the new RX.

The Lincoln Nautilus and Cadillac XT5 represent the mid-size crossover range for the American luxury brands, and the refined interior and cushy seats of the Nautilus steps above the underwhelming Cadillac.

The Genesis GV70 stands above the rest with its alluring style and loaded feature set, and a potent twin-turbo V-6.

With an electrified lineup, the Volvo XC60 balances efficiency, power, and style, but the in-car tech is due for an overhaul.

The revamped Infiniti QX60 looks good and is packaged better than its predecessor, but its limited powertrain offering limits its appeal.
