So, I'm looking to make a statement...
In that case, the RX will be pulling you in like a tractor beam. Lexus has located its brave pills of late, and the RX finishes what the NX started with its origami creases and enormous front grille. Yet the interior is an oasis of calm – we like the cinema-sized central screen.
You won’t be doing so in the Volvo, a shrine to Swedish minimalism, although the XC90’s size might turn heads. The exterior is smooth and unfussy – a theme mirrored on the inside where stress-inducing buttons are discarded almost entirely, leaving a serene place to pass time.
