I already considered it a blessing to have had the opportunity to test drive a Lexus LX a few months ago, so to be able to test drive another Lexus vehicle is twice the blessing!
The Lexus RX 350 F Sport is a luxury 5-seater crossover that offers almost all of the features of a Lexus SUV. From the outside, you can see that it looks as beautiful as the bigger Lexus LX. I liked it the moment I saw it, but I began loving it when I sat on the driver’s seat and started driving it around.
All the driver controls look so elegant inside the Lexus RX! I loved the look of the meters in front of me, as well as the elevated display screen which is set a really good angle.
I also loved that it has a Heads-Up display system which projects your speed and navigation directions onto your windshield. It makes it look like the numbers and the arrows are floating on the road before you; and it definitely helps keep my focus on the road.
The back of the middle seat on the second row can be folded down so that if there’s only one or two second-row passengers, they’ll have an extra cup holder and a compartment. And I’d have to say it’s an awesome feature for when you have a child that needs his/her milk AND water bottles beside them.
The second row can also be fully folded to give you ample space for when you need a bigger space for your stuff.
One of the things that make this vehicle unique for me is that it has a Remote Touch (see top left photo above) which allows me to control the screen on the dashboard just like a computer mouse. This is the first time I’ve seen any vehicle have that kind of controller. You’ll also see some of the extra spaces and compartments in the photos above.
I loved driving the Lexus RX around during our quick vacation! It has made our trip all the more special because who wouldn’t want to drive a luxury vehicle while you’re sightseeing, right? This vehicle had a smooth drive and it seemed like it knew what our family needed in terms of space and features. I would definitely love to have this as our family car! And you should check it out too!
BUY IT! The price for the Lexus RX 350 F Sport SUV starts at around $48,535 depending on any customizations or options you choose.
The price is a lot lower than the Lexus LX which I drove in February because there are a lot of features that are different between them (i.e. the LX has a V8 engine while the RX has V6, the LX has 3 rows while the RX has only 2, etc.). I personally prefer a V6 engine over a V8 because I don’t need to spend too much for gas (plus points for the RX!), but I prefer an SUV that has 3 rows so we can have more space (plus points for the LX!). So in my mind, it really just boils down to your family’s preferences. Don’t forget to visit your nearest Lexus dealer so you can experience it for yourself!
