Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Lexus RX unquestionably feels luxurious from behind the wheel. Its seats are comfortable, and a wide range of seat and wheel adjustments make it relatively easy to find your preferred driving position.

The interior feels pretty high quality, too. While some of the materials might not quite be up there with more popular high-end alternatives, such as the Audi Q7, everything is very well finished, lending the Lexus a premium feel. Little details, such as soft leather-trimmed door pulls, go a long way to lift the ambience.

Everything is easy to use and understand, too, while the RX’s switchgear is slick enough if not quite as well damped as you’ll find in the best European rivals. As for infotainment, you get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring as standard, allowing you to display your phone’s apps on the infotainment screen. The media and sat-nav system’s interface, which uses a laptop-style touchpad instead of a conventional rotary dial, is tricky to use, especially on the move. Thankfully, the screen itself is touch sensitive which makes punching in a post code much simpler.
