2017 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Test Drive Review

2017 Lexus RX 350 Test Drive Review

Lexus was the first automaker to introduce a luxury crossover with the Lexus RX in 1998, and proving that the early bird gets the worm, this crossover has been the best selling luxury crossover/SUV in the U.S. ever since.

The RX was completely redesigned for the 2016 model year, and to keep ahead of its rivals, Lexus added even more content to the 2017 Lexus…
