2016 Lexus RX Interior

The 2016 Lexus RX has been named in the 10 Best Interiors List by Ward’s. In order to qualify, vehicles must have all-new or significantly redesigned interiors for the U.S. market, and are evaluated on materials, ergonomics, safety, comfort, value and fit-and-finish. Eight different editors spent the majority of February and March evaluating the 47 qualifying vehicles’ interiors. WardsAuto Senior Editor Tom Murphy said about the award, “Open the door to the new RX, slide into the driver’s seat and the reasons for its dominance among luxury utility vehicles are evident in the impeccable fit-and-finish, the satin brushed-aluminum trim, the form-fitting seats and the richly finished Espresso Walnut wood that curves gently up from the center console toward the glovebox. But the RX is much more than a luxury experience, never seeming to forget its utilitarian purpose. Second-row seats are spacious and comfortable, and they fold nearly flat, exposing a massive cargo hold to accommodate at least a dozen flats of gardenias for hauling home from the nursery.”

Jeff Bracken, group vice president and general manager, Lexus, said in a statement, “Since the RX was first introduced nearly 18 years ago, it has been the leader in its segment. Now in its fourth generation, we’re extremely honored to have the 2016 RX’s interior recognized by the experts at Ward’s. The team who worked on this all-new iteration put a tremendous amount of effort into keeping its luxurious character intact while maintaining a balance of functionality and comfort. This award recognizes their amazing attention to detail, which can be seen in every facet of the interior.”
