Brushed aluminum flows around the edge of the center control stack and angles it towards the driver, as wood or whatever trim you selected rises to meet the metal at its base. An angled, massive infotainment screen rises out of the dash alone but looks like a continuation of the control stack below. Everywhere you look, leather, metal and wood are interacting in unique and compelling ways. It’s cohesive, it’s high-quality and it’s brilliant.
Though this model rung in at a steep total of $58,760, there isn’t one aspect of this car that doesn’t feel expensive and brilliantly made.
The aura of luxuriousness doesn’t fade when the RX fires into life, as the 3.5-liter V6 is barely audible. It has a 295 horsepower engine which doesn’t provide enough power to get excited about, though you’ll be able to merge onto highways comfortably.
