Lexus RX 350/450h

BASE PRICE RANGE: $38,850-$45,700
BODY TYPE: Midsize/Luxury SUV

WHAT'S NEW: With all of the changes that came in 2010 -- when the latest generation for this sport/utility launched -- there are very few new features to report for 2011. The RX 350 now has a new brake override system. Both models receive new exterior colors; a 12-volt power port is moved to a more convenient location; and the 450h's Sport Package has been dropped.

COOL FACT: In 2009, the RX accounted for 43 percent of total Lexus sales.

SUM UP: Comfortable and reliable, but bland.
