It’s no secret that the auto industry is competitive. Faced with customers who demand more for their money, it’s also not surprising that consumer brands are stepping up their game, offering near-luxury amenities in their vehicles’ higher trims. So why buy a new Lexus car from Keyes Lexus?

New Lexus SUV Vs. New Honda SUV: Who Wins?

Let’s compare the 2023 Lexus RX against the 2023 Honda CR-V to shed more light on this. 

Luxury Features

Most drivers choose a top-trim consumer model for luxury features and tech that can’t be found in the lower levels. While the top trim Honda CR-V offers similar features as the Lexus RX, they’re not deployed with the same finesse. It’s evident in adaptive cruise control, where the Lexus model adaptive cruise control that’s optimized for curves, and in an automated parking feature you can’t get on the Honda CR-V. 

Warranty Coverage

We like to think that peace of mind is an underrated luxury feature. The Lexus RX gives you more of it, thanks to a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. In contrast, Honda only offers a three-year/36,000-mile basic and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Upgrade Opportunities

As we’ve already seen, the Lexus model is competitive with the most-expensive Honda model’s trim. There’s a catch— at least if you’re buying the Honda car. Once you’ve reached the top, where else do you go?

The Lexus RX, in contrast, gives you trim and option upgrades to customize to your heart’s content. By the time you reach the new Lexus RX 500h F Sport Performance trim, you’ll find power and performance you can’t get in the Honda CR-V at any price, thanks to 367 net horsepower, a sport-tuned transmission, eye-catching wool accents to set off the leather upholstery, and much more.

When you visit our Lexus dealership in Van Nuys, you’ll immediately understand why the Lexus RX is America’s best-selling luxury SUV. You’ll also understand that a consumer brand, no matter how well-intentioned it may be or how hard it might try, just can’t compete. Visit Keyes Lexus today and prepare to be impressed.
