2017 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Lexus RX 350 than the Chevrolet Traverse. The Lexus RX 350 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Traverse, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus RX 350, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Lexus RX 350 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Traverse, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus RX 350 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 350 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus RX 350, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Lexus RX 350 for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus RX 350 has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Lexus RX 350 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus RX 350 than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
