OLD VS. NEW: LEXUS RX350
The Lexus RX 350 has always been the best option for comfort, quality, and affordability when considering a Lexus. This well-rounded luxury crossover comes with a slew of improvements since its predecessors, making the 2017 version an even greater deal than before.
Although the 2017 version of the RX350 carried over all the things we got to know and loved about the 2015 version, the main point of difference between the old and the new models is the new safety and technology features integrated into the new model.
The 2015 RX350 came with a bunch of features as standard, but with a smaller display than the 2017 version and with outdated additions. One of the biggest complaints about the older RX350 was the feeble display, poorly integrated interface, and lack of safety features and tech options.
The exciting thing aboutthe newer version is that even the features that are carried over were completely updated to give its consumers the best ride out there. The quiet cabin is constructed with high-end materials, rear seating is unparalleled in comfort, and just the standard package option in this car comes with a generous amount of features.
The base model comes with a 3.5 liter V6 engine (295 horsepower) and an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The 8inch display screen and rearview camera come standard, as well as automatic LED headlights and high-beams, LED foglights and running lights, rear privacy glass, a power liftgate, keyless ignition and entry, dual zone automatic climate control, simulated leather upholstery, eight-way power adjustable front seats, and a power adjustable steering wheel.
Also as standard, the 2017 comes with adaptive cruise control, Safety Connect emergency communications, a slew of safety driving aids (Safety System+ package which includes lane departure warning and intervention and forward collision warning and mitigation with automatic emergency braking), smartphone integrated navigation system, and a nine-speaker sound system.
All in all this car is a great option for a luxury SUV with all the comfort and package options you could possibly ask for from a standard model.
