Overview

What's New in the 2017 Lexus RX 350?

The previously optional array of advanced safety features, known as Safety Sense Plus, is now standard throughout the range. The F Sport treatment can now be applied to front-drive versions of the RX 350. A smartphone-based navigation app called Scout GPS Link is standard. The RX 350 gains rain-sensing wipers and the RX 450h receives blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert as standard. See the 2017 Lexus RX models for sale near you

Which RX 350 is the Best?

If the budget can stand it, the RX 450h has the most power and equipment, while still returning excellent fuel economy. The RX is not, nor ever has been, a driver's machine, so F Sport variants seem kind of unnecessary. Find a Lexus RX for sale

 

How Much Does a 2017 Lexus RX 350 Cost?

The 2017 Lexus RX has a choice of regular or hybrid drivetrains and in "base" or F Sport versions.

The entry level RX 350 ($43,995) includes a rearview camera, premium vinyl upholstery, power tailgate, keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-way power-adjustable front seats, 18-in alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, LED lighting, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, 8-in center screen with Remote Touch controller, 9-speaker audio system, USB port, CD player, HD radio, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assistance and forward collision warning with automatic braking and pedestrian detection.

The F Sport variation ($49,895) features 20-in alloy wheels, enhanced exterior styling, retuned suspension with extra drive modes, paddle shifters, plus a dedicated interior trim and leather upholstery with heated/ventilated front sport seats.

All-wheel drive is an extra $1,400.

The RX 450h ($54,010) and RX 450h F Sport ($57,620) are equipped similarly, but with a few additional items that are part of the RX 350's Luxury package, such as a power sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery and ventilated seats. Plus blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

In addition to the aforementioned RX 350 Luxury package (which also adds roof rails and seat memory), both models also offer a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, larger (12.3-in) center screen, rear DVD entertainment system, navigation, wide-angle rearview camera, and a panoramic sunroof.

With the rear seats in place, cargo space in the RX 350 is a generous 18.4 cu ft. This expands to 56.3 cu ft with the rear seats folded down. The RX 450h has extra hardware to accommodate, resulting in 18/55.9 cu ft.

Competition

2017 Lexus RX 350 vs the competition

2017 Acura MDX -- A close competitor to the RX in terms of pricing, plus a third-row seat, which the RX does not have. No hybrid variant, though.

2017 Lincoln MKX -- Similar fit, finish and comfort to the RX. But with stronger performance and arguably less polarizing styling.

2017 Volvo XC90 -- More expensive than the RX, but offers amazing technology and a finely crafted interior.

Used BMW X5 -- Stronger performance than the RX, along with better handling and cornering capabilities, plus the cachet of the BMW name. But prices are a lot higher, so a used model might be the way to go.
