*Cameron's Top Recommended Luxury Crossover SUV *
What I have to about the 2013 RX: The RX 350 has been refreshed for 2013 and has many updates. Things like the new spindle grill design comes into play with this RX and it's looks very stylish in my opinion. Also, the steering wheel has been reworked to give it a more luxurious feel. Another new important update is that the RX can now be the RX F Sport which a features a 8-Speed Automatic and AWD and a very sporty exterior. Also The RX is a very quiet and luxurious crossover SUV. It's main rival is the Cadillac SRX.
Trims: Base, F Sport, Hybrid
Competitors: Cadillac SRX, Infiniti FX, BMW X3, Mercedes ML, Audi Q5

2013 Audi Allroad vs Lexus RX 350 Off-Road Mashup Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Let's face it the 2013 Audi Allroad and the Lexus RX 350 will spend more time traversing American shopping mall parking lots than bouncing over boulders in the great outdoors. But the Audi is called an Allroad and the Lexus has a locking differential so perhaps these vehicles can venture off-road. we decided to find out in this TFLcar Off-Road Mashup Drive & Review. Which of the two is the most off-road worthy and which of the two should you buy if you happen to cross shop the two modern vehicles.
► 2012 Lexus RX 350
The Lexus RX 350 teams a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a six-speed Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) for an output of 270 horsepower at 6,200 rpm. Intake and Exhaust manifolds have been tuned for enhanced performance and fuel economy. Lexus maximized the torque output to better meet the needs of luxury crossover drivers. Ninety percent or more of the 248 lb.-ft. of peak torque is available from 2,300 to 6,100 rpm, an optimal range where torque is most utilized. An insulated engine cover, styled in the shape of two cylinder banks, conceals the V6 to help ensure a quiet cabin; easy-access points facilitate routine service.
Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) is used to control both intake and Exhaust camshafts independently, optimizing engine performance at all speeds and loads. Refinements to the valvetrain, including roller rocker arms and slimmer valve stems, reduce friction and weight to improve fuel economy. Also helping to enhance torque is the improved Acoustic Control Induction System (ACIS), which varies the intake runner length in response to engine speed and throttle position. The ETCS-i (Electronic Throttle Control System with intelligence) softens throttle response during initial acceleration for smoother takeoff and to help reduce wheel spin.
The RX 350's six-speed automatic transmission yields a quick shifting response with help from miniature high-flow linear solenoids that control transmission-fluid line-pressure. The torque converter uses a low-speed lockup damper to enable lock-up from second to sixth gear to help improve the fuel economy.
When applying the accelerator pedal rapidly during kick-down, the direct-downshift control allows the transmission to directly shift from sixth to third or fifth to second, skipping the intermediate gears to achieve the quickest response. Under normal kick-down pedal application, downshift control uses the intermediate gears to ensure the smoothest shift is attained. "Shift shock" is further reduced.
The Multi-Mode Sequential Shift Automatic Transmission allows the driver to shift manually when desired by first moving the gated shift lever to the "S" slot and then pushing it forward ("+") to up shift and backward ("-") to downshift. An Intelligent Shift Control sets shift patterns based on the vehicle speed and throttle position and estimates road conditions and driver input to automatically control the shift pattern. For example, when driving in hilly areas, this system can prevent unnecessary shifting. When descending inclines, the transmission prevents up shifts to achieve more engine braking.
The RX 350 AWD model features an electronically controlled Active Torque Control AWD system. Active Torque Control AWD uses an electronically controlled coupling ahead of the rear differential to vary torque distribution anywhere from 100:0 to 50:50 front to rear, depending on driving dynamics and road conditions. When accelerating, or starting off on a low-grip surface, torque is quickly provided to all four wheels. At steady speeds, torque is sent only to the front wheels, enhancing fuel efficiency.
To help provide handling agility and control, the AWD system increases rear-wheel torque when the vehicle's front tires start to lose traction and decreases rear-wheel torque when the vehicle's rear tires start to lose traction. On rough or sandy terrain, an AWD LOCK switch provides enhanced traction performance for low-speed maneuvering (if in LOCK mode, the system reverts to AUTO mode when speed exceeds 25 mph). To help prevent a tight corner-braking condition (shuddering) during low-speed cornering, the system reduces rear wheel torque.
Lexus RX 450h SUV review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/lexus/rx/sports-utility-vehicle/reviewThe Lexus RX450h majors on comfort and quality, offering a quiet drive with high levels of standard equipment. The hybrid system uses a 3.5-litre petrol V6 engine and a pair of electric motors. This means that there's plenty of power while offering superb economy, emissions and running costs. Across the range, the interior is luxurious, with enough space for five adults, loads of practical space and room for luggage. The latest facelift has brought a sportier F Sport specification, which is Lexus' answer to the Audi Q7 S Line Plus 3.0 TDI quattro. The RX 450h is quite expensive, though, which somewhat cancels out any reduced running costs, and its resale value isn't very strong either.

2013 Toyota Landcruiser Start up and walk around
Legendary Toyota Land Cruiser Receives Significant Enhancements for 2013
• Updated Exterior Styling
• Standard Premium HDD Navigation System With Entune™ Multi-media
• New Dynamic Performance and Safety Features
• Popular Options Become Standard Equipment
The legendary Toyota Land Cruiser recently celebrated its 60th anniversary since its original launch in Japan and has remained constant in Toyota's U.S. model lineup for more than 50 years.
Land Cruiser has evolved over time from a basic four-wheel-drive utility vehicle in its early years to an upscale eight-passenger sport utility vehicle (SUV) sold in 188 countries. Yet, this iconic vehicle has retained a loyal following as it remains true to its off-road heritage with uncompromising go-anywhere capability.
For the 2013 model year, Land Cruiser receives exterior and interior styling enhancements. Additionally, Land Cruiser will now come with all features as standard equipment, including new driving performance features, and an array of significant safety and convenience features. Among the many popular features that were formerly available as options, but are now standard, are rear-seat DVD entertainment system, color-keyed rear spoiler, rain-sensing windshield wipers, center-console cooler box, headlamp cleaners, leather-trimmed steering wheel, multi-information display, voice and Bluetooth® hands-free controls, leather-trimmed shift lever and heated second row seats. Toyota's Premium Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Navigation with Entune multi-media system and JBL® audio is also standard.
The 2013 Land Cruiser receives refreshed exterior styling that includes an updated front grille and headlamps with HID low-beams. Additional new features include LED Daytime Running Lights, chrome side molding, redesigned outer side mirrors and tail lamps. The design continues to convey an "Advanced and Rugged" theme with enlarged front and rear fenders. The new grille and headlamps maintain Land Cruiser's steady and confident appearance, while the hood flows gracefully into the grille and beltlines.
Character lines in the front, the area around the rear door handles, and the back door panels suggest strength. Foam-filled A-pillars and a "bifacial" molding between the windshield and the body both help reduce wind noise.
Underbody panels behind the front bumper and extending under the engine, and behind the rear wheels, are designed to protect the engine and transmission and to help the vehicle traverse rocky terrain smoothly. These underbody panels also smooth the airflow under the vehicle to help minimize drag and turbulence.
Land Cruiser is available in seven exterior colors, including Pearl White, which is new to the palette. Additional colors include Classic Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Salsa Red Pearl, Sonora Gold Pearl, Amazon Green Metallic and Black.
Complementing the freshened exterior, Land Cruiser receives an updated interior available in either Sandstone or Black. Additional refinements include perforated leather trim with ventilated front seats, a higher gloss wood grain finish, brighter silver instrument panel ornamentation, chrome-plated air registers and updated meter-cluster lighting. New interior convenience features include a Multi-terrain Monitor with front, side or rear selectable views; a new Multi-information Display; an Eco Driving Indicator light and zone display; a heated steering wheel; Dynamic Radar Cruise Control; an additional power outlet (DC 12V) at the rear of the center console; and a rear cargo deck power outlet that has been changed to AC 120V from AC 115V.
Land Cruiser seats up to eight, with three-across seating in the second and third rows. The instrument panel features a set of bright Optitron gauges with white illumination. Beneath these gauges, a multi-informational display shows gear selection, odometer, tripmeter, fuel consumption, individual tire pressures and cruising range. The vehicle's center console features a gate-type shifter with sequential-shift-mode operation, the parking brake, center-console cooler box, USB port and cup holders.
The passenger-side second-row seat features a one-touch tumble mechanism for easier third-row ingress and egress. The second-row seats slide forward and aft 4.1 inches for more passenger comfort and cargo storage versatility. The second row also provides the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) child seat attachment system.

Lexus RX450h review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Lexus RX450h review http://www.whatcar.com/car-reviews/lexus/rx-4x4/summary/25898-3
The Lexus RX450h is one of the greenest full-size 4x4s, so running costs are impressively low. It's stacked with kit, it's nicely refined on the move, and there's plenty of space for five people plus luggage.
The steering is short of feel and tyres sometimes find themselves short of grip. The CVT gearbox takes some getting used to, and the ride can be fidgety.
