What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The RX is comfortable to drive and good on Tarmac

Against It has only limited off-road ability, and there's no diesel version

Verdict The ultimate in luxury 4x4s at affordable prices

Go for… RX 300 in standard trim

Avoid… SE trim

Lexus RX 4x4
  • 1. In the unlikely event that you need unscheduled work on an RX, labour rates at dealers are quite high
  • 2. RX is very well equipped, and there‚Äôs plenty of space for passengers and luggage
  • 3. The only potential problem we've heard of is that the alloy wheels can corrode quite badly
  • 4. The V6 engine is smooth and hushed, but there's no diesel alternative
  • 5. The automatic gearbox is slick, but could do with a fifth ratio
