SUV: 2014 Lexus RX

Strong-selling luxury crossover with standard premium audio; F-Sport model gets sportier suspension, eight-speed automatic

Take one look at the spindle grille on the front of the F-Sport model, and you’ll instantly know this is a different kind of Lexus RX. Aggressively aero-styled, the F-Sport also comes with a sportier suspension setup and a new eight-speed automatic that can flick through the gears extra fast. All RX models, whether V6 or hybrid, can be optioned with a clever all-wheel-drive system for added traction, and all blend car-like ride and comfort with excellent cargo capacity.
