With more 2024 and even 2025 model debuts this week, Lexus caught the news cycle with the launch of two new three-row SUVs. It also provides head-to-head comparisons of some of the most popular family movers and keeps track of the latest new car news.
This is what impressed us.
preview and review
The TX is new for 2024 and boasts big features like full three-row seating, three powertrain options and a thick layer of luxurious lacquer over the associated Toyota Grand Highlander.
The GX 550 has been redesigned for 2024 with a turbocharged powertrain, an upcoming hybrid model and a more off-road focused overtrail model.
Volvo will market the battery electric vehicle as a small, affordable urban crossover with a range of up to 405 miles.
The Santa Cruz pickup truck has a lot in common with the Tucson crossover, but its curb appeal and cool factor might be far stronger for teens.
The 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan is fun, dazzling and frustrating all at once, earning a TCC rating of 6.4 out of 10.
The redesigned off-roader is priced modestly at $700, but comes with more standard equipment like a 12.3-inch touchscreen.
Toyota still sells nearly three times as many Highlanders as Hyundai does in the Palisade, but the gap is closing in the highly competitive three-row crossover SUV segment.
Toyota has catered to the larger Honda Pilot, a longer version of the Highlander called the Grand Highlander.
A potential fire hazard from a 12-volt battery can cause a fire even when the crossover’s engine is off.
