2013 Infiniti JX35 vs. 2014 Lexus RX 350 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Infiniti JX35 than in the Lexus RX 350. The Infiniti JX35 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus RX 350, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Infiniti JX35 as you will with the Lexus RX 350, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Infiniti JX35 or the Lexus RX 350, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Infiniti JX35 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lexus RX 350.

Dimensions
Since the Infiniti JX35 is much wider than the Lexus RX 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Infiniti JX35, which is slightly longer than the Lexus RX 350.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Infiniti JX35 and the Lexus RX 350 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Infiniti JX35 has the same turning radius as the Lexus RX 350, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Infiniti JX35 is clearly the choice over the Lexus RX 350 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Infiniti JX35 and the Lexus RX 350.

Utility
The Infiniti JX35 offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus RX 350, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Infiniti JX35 has less cargo space than the Lexus RX 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti JX35 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lexus RX 350.
