Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Lexus RX feels luxurious from behind the wheel, with comfortable seats and a wide range of seat and steering wheel adjustments to make it relatively easy to find a good driving position.

The quality of the interior is pretty high, 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 RX a premium feel. The soft leather-trimmed door pulls and other appealing details go a long way to lift the ambience.

As for infotainment, you get Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring as standard, allowing you to display your phone’s apps on the screen. The media and sat-nav system’s interface, which uses a touchpad instead of a dial, is tricky to use, especially on the move. Thankfully, the screen itself is touch-sensitive so punching in a postcode is simple.
