Editor's Overview

While not as driver-oriented as a BMW X5 or Mercedes-Benz GLE, the 2017 Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h hybrid provide more than acceptable levels of ride and handling, and still outshine almost every competitor in the areas of reliability and resale. Those who don’t mind sacrificing ride comfort for performance will find the F Sport trims quite alluring.

the Rx hybrid get great mileage per gallon of gas.

Lexus Rx is a hybrid. Gets great gas mileage 34.2 miles per gallon of gas. Quiet very comfortable ride. The interior is roomy and well designed. The leather seats are comfortable and offer electronic adjustments. The heat and cool function works well and an added plus . The navigation system is well designed for easy use. Voice command for phone is often a hit or miss with getting address or phone call correct. This is also common on a BMW car we own. Storage in the back is adequate. Seats fold easy for the extra storage in the back. I enjoy driving this car.

The lights inside the car turn on with the brush of your hand.

Love the car but not the poor mileage. As gas continues to rise again the cost of fuel becomes even more important as well as the effect on the environment. The sound system is terrific and the ride is cushy which makes it enjoyable to drive. I do wish the design wasn't so sharp edged. All in all this car functions well and Lexus financial is responsive.

- Nancy G

Rear view mirror monitors.

Rx350 just the right size. Very comfortable. Lots of good features side mirror car signal advanced cruise control. Four wheel drive. Navigation system ample power and reasonable gas mileage. I have not had any problems. I purchased a 45 thousand warranty at purchased I really enjoy the car and purchase another Lexus in the future.
