    The Lexus RX isn't the biggest luxury sport-utility vehicle on the market. It's not the fastest, or the sexiest, or the most practical.

    You'll excuse us if the Lexus RX crossover has never blipped on our radar. But now comes a new, buffed-up RX, the F Sport. Yes.

    Lexus should use them. It's comfy, safe, and save for the grille, it's anodyne, reliable, ubiquitous semi-luxury that you can drive to the snow. Donny Nordlicht September 25, Privacy Policy Terms of use.

    Lexus RX F Sport review notes | Autoweek

    I'd rather be sleeping! But in fits and starts, Toyota's been attempting to shake off the case of the blands that has dogged its mainstream and luxury brands since they gave up on things like mid-engine sports cars and RWD compacts. The Scion FR-S has the kids talking. Its hybrids are actually starting to become enjoyable to drive. And the GS is a simply wonderful thing. But the RX is the target that everybody in the luxury-crossover game wants to hit.

    Cadillac gloated like mad a couple of years ago when the SRX managed to come in second, as if they winged an otherwise-implacable foe.

    Updated with the new corporate spindle grille, the RX seems to play it safe in every other regard. Even in F Sport guise, Toyota's fabulous 3. The black interior in my tester didn't do it any particular favors, either, washing everything into a black blob of bland.

    Lexus' Enform infotainment system works well enough; the mouse-like controller takes a bit of acclimation, but operates in a relatively intuitive manner. The graphics, however, need help. Enform looks just like what you'd find in a Camry, which in turn is something that looks just like what you'd find on a circa webpage. Toyota seems to be experimenting around the margins right now -- employing Subaru to do the heavy lifting on a sports car, making its Japanese Buick way more luxurious, honing the slow-selling GS into a fun driver and sending us a true two-box Prius.

    The fact that the flagship LS and mainstay RX have seen revamps mainly relating to exterior and interior design either signals that they're confident in the models' continuing viability in the market or that they're too afraid to fully redesign them until the fruits of their other experiments are ripe. Otherwise, what do you say? It's comfy, safe, and save for the grille, it's anodyne, reliable, ubiquitous semi-luxury that you can drive to the snow.

    And the F Sport is the RX, too. It just has a badge on it that says F Sport. People who listened to crossover back in the '90s will probably want to drive something else. Car news, reviews, motorsports, auto shows and stunning photography delivered right to your mailbox.
