2015 Lexus RX 350 Review — Not So Many Changes

By | 03/28/2014

The 2015 Lexus RX 350 is the third generation of this luxury midsize crossover. It was first introduced to the market in 2010, and since then, it had only one major redesign. That happened in 2014, when this car got a new spindle grille, which can now be seen in most of the Lexus’ models, LED daytime running headlights and a pair of completely new taillights. The 2015 model will keep its look. Since this car makes an excellent sale the way it is, it is easy to understand the manufacturer’s decision not to change to many things. In an all-time changing world, this decision seems a bit risky, but so far, no harm has been done to Lexus’ profit. This is a luxury car, and like every luxury thing in general, there are people that prefer it over anything else, regardless of the specs and other offers. Sometimes this is called taste, sometime devotion. Nevertheless, we expect 2015 Lexus RX350 to stay well ahead of the game even though not much has been changed.

The new 19 inch triple-split, five-spoke wheel colored in light gray have a machined finish and can be ordered with Premium or Luxury Package. In addition, there are also HID and LED headlights and LED fog lights, but they don’t come with a standard package. So if you do want them, you’ll have to specify your wishes. Of course, it costs extra, but it’s a money well spend because this car looks amazing even without them. If you get them, the wow factor is ensured.  Other than that, the 2015 model will have the same aggressive look its predecessor had. For all those who loved the previous version, this is great news.
