2016 Lexus Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Lexus might be known for its sporty vehicles, and that's a reputation it sought to maintain in 2016, with some small updates to several of its models and the complete redesign of one its signature SUVs, the RX. Credited with creating the five-passenger luxury crossover SUV category in the 1990s, the RX moved into its fourth generation in 2016. The reboot sees a change its interior and exterior appearance as a well as a boost in power under the hood. The new engine is a 3.5-liter V6, which gets 295 horsepower (up from 270). The new RX is also slightly more fuel-efficient than earlier models (26/mpg combined). A hybrid model ups the fuel efficiency to 28 mpg. While the RX got the most dramatic makeover for 2016, other models in Lexus' lineup also got some changes. The ES sedan got the Safety System Plus suite as a standard feature while the GS family grew to include two new models, the GS 200t and GS F.
