The 2015 Lexus RX 350 car delivers a luxurious feel to it and some excellent comforts, but lack the boldness that people have somewhat asked for. The car will come out its RX 350 and RX 400h trims and both have the same features and characteristics design wise. But this is in fact a nice updated to the legendary vehicle that the RX 350 has made for itself in the past.

The new model has a lot to live up to as the 2015 will have its own older brands as the greatest competition to fight against. The new RX 350 is a very nice vehicle, but will it fair with the trademark design and performance that has been set with the previous model will be seen in time. Namely, this was a luxury crossover that first appeared 15 years ago and through that period has made a name for itself, producing some great cars. Now is the time for the 2015 year model to show us what it has got.

As seen from the pictures the Lexus RX 350 provides a nice shape and is pleasing to the eye, with a standard design that comes from a Lexus vehicle. The Lexus has always been concentrated on comfort that brute force and so wil the newest car aim to provide. Concentrating on passenger’s comfort and suburb drive will also attract some youthful audiences as well. The price is not too great and after its release it will certainly try to carry on the legacy of its forefathers.

The design of the Lexus RX vehicles has always been modest, without too much flashiness or boldness to its look, and it was something that fans were hoping on seeing and were used to. The design of the car was actually perhaps one of the sole attractions of it and something that made its appeal greater. The 2015 model will do the same and will continue on this legacy which the previous cars have set for the RX. For years now the car has features a similar silhouette, which will remain the same or rather similar for the new car. It does not have any aggressive edges nor does it need them.

But last year when the third generation of the RX 350 models started to be released, there were some slight changes which are carried over for this model as well. The introduction of a trademark Lexus spindle grille has been added to the entire lineup of Lexus vehicle and the RX 350 was not left out as well. The grill gives it a tad meaner look but otherwise it combines well with the snub-nosed look which adds also some elegance into the mixture to go as well. Additional colors are available this time and there is the inclusion of LED technology for both the front lights and the taillights as well.

The interior has been a bit refined but still concentrates on the focus of matching the luxury for the passengers. The interior design will be such so it can divide the driver’s controls visually from the passenger’s zone, which is actually a sane thing to do. It is also going to change the wood trim that was a big part of the inside look of the vehicle and substitute it with a silver-painted plastic trim.

Some people actually criticized the Lexus’s interior as not being rich enough, so this time the RX’s interior has been updated to address the given issue. Contrast stitching were the first thing to be added to the design while next came Ebony Bird’s Eye Maple and Saddle Leather interior options respectively. There is a special addition for the Sport F trim which includes Cabernet leather-trimmed interior, specially offered just for this model. Actually all models will benefit from their news stitching but also a new center console look and a new wheel design as well.



Despite the fact that performance always takes second compared with the luxury of the vehicle when it comes to all Lexus RX models, but this time the 2015 RX 350 will come with a decent setup. It is still not a powerhouse but it is enough to provide us with what we need and what the fans of the RX are used to. A 275-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine will be offered as the base option and will combined its efforts with a six-speed automatic transmission. The front wheel drive comes as a standard offer while the all-wheel drive is an optional choice.


Price and release date

As the date of the release has not been confirmed we will wait a bit more in order to get to know when the car will be available for purchase. Till then keep an open eye out or ear to hear and see when the release date is going to be. The price has already been released and has been known for some time now, so the 2015 Lexus RX 350 models come at a base MSRP of 40,970 USD.
