The Lexus RX 350 is remarkably versatile, and it offers ample room for passengers, making it a great choice if you're looking for a luxurious ride that can help you and your loved ones stay comfortable during long drives around Malibu or Los Angeles. The Lexus RX 350 has superior legroom in both the front and second rows when compared to the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, offering more than 44 inches of legroom in the front and 38 inches of legroom in the back.

You can even opt for a version of the Lexus RX 350 that offers a third row, expanding your vehicle's versatility and making it easy to accommodate more passengers on the fly.


Engine Power

Impressive performance is at your command when you drive a Lexus RX 350. All models in the lineup come with a potent 3.5L V6 engine under the hood that produces up to 295 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, which easily outpaces the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. Rival models will have to upgrade to keep up with what the Lexus RX 350 offers right out of the gate, meaning that you can enjoy more power and plenty of features for less when you choose the Lexus RX 350.

Front-wheel drive comes standard on the Lexus RX 350, while its rivals come with rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is also optional on all Lexus RX 350 models, allowing you to spring for the feature if you want improved stability and traction on Calabasas roads. The Lexus RX 350 also features an Active Cornering Assist system that can help you avoid oversteering so that you can hug every curve with the utmost confidence.

Advanced Technology

The Lexus RX 350 offers a variety of exciting tech features that can help you get more out of your daily adventures, whether you're commuting or getting ready for a road trip. The Lexus Multimedia System comes standard with an 8-inch LCD display that you can upgrade to a massive 12.3-inch display, which is larger than its rivals' screens, for even greater control over your favorite features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility come standard, as does Amazon Alexa integration.

Android users will have to upgrade the BMW X3 to get Android Auto. The BMW X3 also does not offer compatibility with Amazon Alexa, and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 only offers Amazon Alexa connectivity through a phone app.

Safety Features

You can enjoy greater peace of mind when you're behind the wheel of the Lexus RX 350, thanks to its suite of standard safety features. Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 is only available on Lexus models like the Lexus RX 350, and it offers high-tech driver-assist features to help you and your loved ones stay safe when you're on the road around Westlake Village. Features include a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Road Sign Assist, and more to help you a safer, less fatiguing driving experience.
