Pop quiz: What’s the best selling Lexus of all time?
It’s not the ES, the IS or even the original LS. It’s the brand’s mid-size luxury crossover, the RX. Selling like hot cakes before the world went crossover crazy, the RX has now surpassed 2.1 million sales worldwide.
That’s a lot of premium soft-roaders, and to say this vehicle is important to Lexus would be an understatement. This is why not taking a lot of risks with the 2016 overhaul makes sense, because the last thing Lexus wants to do is alienate the manufacturer’s current customer base. But has Toyota’s luxury division done enough with the 2016 Lexus RX to attract some new blood while satisfying the old guard?
