Lexus RX review - parsimonious SUV is still no driving machine - Interior and Tech
Luxury SUV is now available with a 2-litre turbocharged engine, but hybrid is still the car to go for
If the hybrid drive is a diversion from the class convention so too is the RX’s interior. It’s always been a bit left-field the RX, and this third generation model does nothing to change that. The central screen is operated by a frankly weird mouse-type controller that slides around in its housing, the operation of which is more than a bit tricky.
Build quality is impeccable and the design is better than it was in the old model - there's now a horizontal theme to the interior surfaces and a more conventional feel, where the previous car felt a little like an upscaled Prius with some posh trim. Few cars in this class have yet pushed the boat out when it comes to interior styling, so there's little here to criticise beyond the idiosyncratic infotainment control method.
