Lexus calls the RX 330 an LUV for "luxury utility vehicle." We'll call it an SUV for "suburban utility vehicle." In many ways, a minivan has more utility, more room inside, more seats, and even, as in the new , four-wheel-drive. But the RX 330 has more panache than any minivan, which may be perceived as too suburban.
That said, the RX 330 offers a good ride, a plush, innovative interior, ready power with an 18/24 mpg city/highway EPA mileage rating (4x4), and the confidence that all-wheel-drive confers in winter driving, all with more room and, to some eyes, more elan than a simple sedan. Add Lexus quality and reliability and that all-important see-over-the-traffic seat height and it's your move, LUV.
