Last week we saw a Lexus RX300 on a parking lot. The body style is very similar to the Murano. But Murano is more attractive to look at. Has anybody driven a RX300 and a Murano to compare them? It seems to me that we discuss similarities and diferences with cars like Saturn, Ford Escort etc. which look differently and are completely diferent in equipment and performance and nobody compares Muranos with cars like Lexus. Muranos definitely deserve to be compared with more luxurious cars.

My wife & I have driven them both, as well as the Pilot, MDX & Rendevieux. She prefers the RX300 for looks, steering, comfort and seating position, but I'm still looking at the Murano because of the gadgets, extras and tranny. It's also a novelty now, but that won't last. Lexus is going to come out with a RX330 soon so that will date the RX300 even more as it's been on the scene the longest.

I haven't driven the Lexus in years, so I can't give you a direct comparison. As I recall, the cargo space of the Lexus is much smaller, and styling wise, I don't really consider them being very similar. I think the Lexus looks very outdated.

I also just built a RX 300 on the web with the packages similar to my Murano and it's about $5000 more.

See my forum on comparison of Murano, RDX & MDX. I got the RDX for less than I could get the Murano or the MDX and love it. My wife particularly likes the ride and comfort features which aren't on the MDX or the Murano.
