TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2017 Lexus RX

2017 Lexus RX Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
The Lexus RX has the roomiest back seat of the three, the Lincoln MKX the tightest. Very tall people will prefer the RX's. At 5-9, I'm not tall, and found the other two back seats much more comfortable, with higher, better shaped cushions providing better thigh support and seat backs that were not overly reclined. The RX's rear seat back felt overly reclined to me even in its most upright position. Since it adjusts, why didn't Lexus engineer it to adjust over a wider range? see full Lexus RX review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2017 Lexus RX

2017 Lexus RX Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2016 For 2016, Lexus has increased the output of the RX 350's 3.5-liter V6 engine from 270 to 295 horsepower and has increased the automatic transmission's ratio count from six to eight. The Cadillac XTS and base Lincoln MKX are both a little more powerful, with 310 and 303 horsepower, respectively. The Cadillac also has an eight-speed automatic, while the MKX continues with a six-speed. The Lincoln can also be purchased with a 335-horspower twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 engine. Aside from this engine's 40-horsepower advantage, it kicks out over 100 more pound-feet of torque, indicating a far stronger midrange. In theory, this should make the MKX feel much more powerful than the others in typical driving. In reality, it feels only a little stronger and not quite as responsive. GM's engineers did an outstanding job reducing the weight of Cadillac's crossover, such that the XT5 is the lightest of the three, while the Lincoln is the heaviest. No one's posted acceleration times for the XT5 yet, but it could be as quick as the MKX with the turbo engine. If the RX 350 is the least quick of the three, then why is powertrain performance among the reasons to buy one? Because the RX 350 is as quick as the great majority of buyers will ever need it to be, and its engine sounds more sophisticated and feels more more responsive than the others. For upscale crossover duty, this powertrain sounds and feels pretty much perfect. Fuel economy? The RX 350 earns EPA ratings of 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with front-wheel-drive and 19 / 26 with the tested all-wheel-drive. In my real-world driving I observed high-teens to low-20s in the suburbs and high-20s on the highway. The Cadillac's EPA ratings are slightly lower (19/27 with FWD, 18/26 with AWD). The Lincoln's EPA ratings are the worst of the group (17/26 with FWD, 16/23 with the base engine and AWD, 17/24 with the turbo engine and AWD). If you want better fuel economy, Lexus also offers the RX 450h hybrid (31/30 with FWD, 30/28 with AWD). see full Lexus RX review
