Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RX 350 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan ARIYA, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan ARIYA will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus RX 350.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan ARIYA.

Dimensions
The Lexus RX 350 is a little wider than the Nissan ARIYA, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus RX 350, which is slightly longer than the Nissan ARIYA.

Handling
The Lexus RX 350 has a larger turning radius than the Nissan ARIYA, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus RX 350 is clearly the choice over the Nissan ARIYA for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RX 350 has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan ARIYA.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Lexus RX 350 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Nissan ARIYA.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus RX 350 and the Nissan ARIYA. The Lexus RX 350 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan ARIYA.
