It seems that the RX gets a bad rep around here. Let me attempt to explain.

  • Itā€™s quiet. Therefore the driver is isolated from their surroundings.
  • The drive is boring. Seriously. Iā€™ve driven one and couldnā€™t remember anything about it.
  • The blind spots are horrendous.
  • The transmission is really lazy. You have to really push it to get it to downshift. So everyone does 5 under the limit.
  • Luxury badge = I do what I want

Perhaps the only question that should be posed is, ā€œWhy do people buy the 2016+ RX?ā€
