NY Times: Lexus RX 350 Gets a Daring Redesign for 2016

May 16th, 2016 by

Lexus has been in the luxury SUV business for nearly 20 years, having invented the category back in 1998 with the Lexus 300. The 2016 RX 350 represents the fourth generation of the Japanese automaker’s trademark crossover. The new model takes a more daring approach in the looks department while also offering other improvements, says Tom Voelk, auto critic for The New York Times, in a new review. Click “play” in the video clip below to watch his full report.

The new RX 350 has a decidedly more angular design sensibility. Voelk suspects Lexus knows its customer base well, and they are likely looking for something less staid. Like its predecessors, the new RX is sold with a 3.5-liter V6 (the RX 350) and a hybrid powertrain (the RX 450h). The V6 produces 295 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque higher in the rev range. All-wheel-drive RX 350s do the dash from 0 to 60 miles an hour in about 7.5 seconds.
