2010 Lexus RX 350 Overview
Good just got better in the SUV/crossover segment with the redesigned 2010 Lexus RX 350. Enhancements to the interior, exterior and engine give luxury crossover enthusiasts and Lexus fans a reason to be excited.
The freshly redesigned RX 350 is like an upscale Toyota Venza and competes with the Acura MDX and Lincoln MKX. Buyers get a choice of two trims: all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive. A robust 3.5-liter, 275-horsepower V-6 engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The RX 350 can tow up to 3,500 pounds and receives 18 mpg in the city and 24-25 mpg on the highway.
The RX 350 is wider and longer giving it a wagon-like stance and more of a carlike look. On the inside, the RX 350 seats five and the backseat folds in a 40/20/40 split that reclines and adjusts forward and backward. The impressive Voice-Recognition Technology offers a much higher recognition rate and controls Bluetooth, navigation, climate and audio controls by using normal, everyday speech. Another Lexus gem is the Heads-up Display system that projects navigation directions, audio information and vehicle speed on the windshield in the front of you. One of the coolest features you’ll find in any car is Lexus’ Remote Touch system, which uses a knob to navigate menus with a mouse-like arrow cursor on the dashboard display screen. And not to be forgotten, a 15-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System uses 7.1-channel architecture and 330 watts that will immerse you in a crystal clear wall of sound.
When it comes to safety, the RX 350 is as innovative as ever. Passengers are virtually wrapped in the 10 airbags of every shape, size, and technological deployment option. A four-sensor, four-channel Anti-Lock Braking System with Brake Assist provides excellent control and supplemental braking power. Vehicle Stability Control measures wheel speed, steering angle and yaw rate to detect a loss of wheel traction. A direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System helps you keep the tires properly inflated, activating a light on the instrument panel when pressure is critically low. A backup camera and Pre-Collision System are important in avoiding accidents in the first place.
With plenty of utility, safety features and a plethora of cutting-edge technology, the newly redesigned 2010 Lexus RX 350 rests at the pinnacle of the luxury crossover class.
