Is the Lexus RX 350 a Good SUV?
Yes, the Lexus RX 350 is a good SUV. The RX has a long list of features and ample passenger space, though its cargo hold is somewhat undersized. The standard V6 engine delivers plenty of power, and the RX rides smoothly even over rough pavement.
Should I Buy the Lexus RX 350?
We named the Lexus RX our 2018 Best Luxury 2-Row SUV for the Money for having the best combination of quality and value in the class. It has a lower price than many competitors and is highly practical, making it a great choice as a commuter vehicle. Still, top competitors like the Audi Q7 and Acura TLX are worth considering as well.

The 2019 Lexus Rx 350, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Lexus Rx 350 doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only 2019 Lexus Rx 350 trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
