Lexus RX vs Toyota RAV4?

Hi folks.

Reading your review of the NX 450h, I'm wondering how it compares to the RAV4 PHEV? The NX is marginally, possibly insignificantly bigger and substantially dearer but they both have (as far as I can see) similar powerplants. Both with Toyota's reliability. Anyway, I'd be interested in hearing how you would compare them.

Thank you

Hi Philip,


Yes, they essentially share the same powertrain, but otherwise they're quite different. The Lexus justifies its higher price with a more luxurious interior and driving experience. It's quieter, too.
