The RX 350 is a top-selling and highly-ranked luxury crossover SUV with one of the best combinations of powerful performance and secure handling in its class.

The Lexus RX has for years been the benchmark for marrying functionality, quality, and performance in the luxury midsize SUV class. The RX 350 receives wide praise for its stylish exterior, class-leading safety features and ratings, comfortable interior space, good cabin tech features, and capable driving dynamics. Car and Driver advises, "If you're seeking a serene and swift transporter for up to five persons, this is your SUV."
