Swapped into a Lexus RX 350

Lexus RX 350 I’ve swapped into the all-new Lexus RX 350, which I’ve already identified as competing head-to-head with the all-new Cadillac SRX. This is the first time I’ve driven the RX since driving the SRX, and I have to say I’ve already had some interesting revelations. Though I am still (at the moment) firmly... Read more »
