Which you should buy, 2014 or 2015? 2015
The RX crossover SUV is the best-selling Lexus model, so there was little need to make major changes for 2015. Besides the standard backup camera and 7-inch display screen, other changes are minor. LED fog lamps are included with optional high-intensity-discharge headlights, the turn signals add a three-flash lane-change feature and the Enform app suite adds Slacker radio.
More on the Lexus RX
The lineup includes front- and all-wheel-drive versions of the RX 350 with a gas V-6 and the RX 450h V-6 hybrid, plus the front-drive F Sport model that adds a firmer suspension, more aggressive exterior trim and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The F Sport is a decent attempt at adding some zest to the RX line, but most buyers are more interested in the comfort and convenience features of the other models.
