Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the INFINITI QX55 than in the Lexus RX 350L. The Lexus RX 350L will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the INFINITI QX55.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the INFINITI QX55 as you will with the Lexus RX 350L, 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). The INFINITI QX55 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus RX 350L. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the INFINITI QX55 and the Lexus RX 350L have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The INFINITI QX55 is about the same width as the Lexus RX 350L. If you go with the INFINITI QX55, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus RX 350L.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the INFINITI QX55 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus RX 350L.

Handling
The INFINITI QX55 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus RX 350L, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The INFINITI QX55 has a little less horsepower than the Lexus RX 350L.

Utility
The INFINITI QX55 has less seating than the Lexus RX 350L, making the Lexus RX 350L the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The INFINITI QX55 has less cargo space than the Lexus RX 350L, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
