We give an enthusiastic thumbs up to the Lexus RX 300. Its excellent handling and exceptional traction on slippery surfaces make it a perfect luxury vehicle for people who drive on snow-covered or unpaved roads. RX 300 provides almost as much cargo space as a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but boasts vastly superior ride and handling. Inside it looks, feels and drives like a luxury sport sedan.

However, the RX 300 may not be the ultimate off-road vehicle, nor the brawniest in towing capability. But most people don’t drive off road anyway. For that reason, the RX 300 heralds one of the directions SUVs are headed.
