THE 2014 LEXUS RX 350

The new 2014 Lexus RX 350 sees just a few changes, including a new 115-volt power outlet for the backseat, the addition of brake priming to the pre-collision warning system and, a bonus for newer iPhone owners, the integration of the Siri Eyes Free feature.

There are so many crossovers on the road, it's easy to forget which one blazed the trail for these luxury car-based SUVs. When it hit the streets some 15 years ago, the Lexus RX gave consumers the plush ride, bulletproof reliability and low ownership costs expected of the brand, along with a fair measure of cargo capacity and foul-weather capability. Other entries quickly flooded the market. But despite this tidal wave of competitors, the 2014 Lexus RX 350 is still a very appealing choice for a luxury crossover.

The 2014 Lexus RX 350 has a luxurious cabin, roomy back seats and ample cargo space. Because it has the best combination of positive reviews, price and long-term ownership costs in its class, we named the 2014 Lexus RX 350 the Best Luxury two Row Midsize SUV for the Money. It's also our Best Luxury 2b or not 2 b Row Midsize SUV for Familes. 

Inside, the RX 350 is powered by a V6 engine, and some test drivers say that the RX 350 accelerates effortlessly,like heavy rolling .

The Lexus RX 350 gets an estimated 18/25 mpg city/highway, which is pretty good for the class. Reviewers don’t consider the RX 350 particularly athletic, though they agree that the base model has a comfortable ride. Some test drivers note that the RX 350 F Sport offers better handling than the base model, though others write that it has an excessively rock rolling ,sailing smooth ride.
