2010 Lexus RX 350 Review

More About This Model

It's fitting that the 2010 Lexus RX 350 was introduced in Napa Valley, California, the heartland of American wineries. When crafting a delicate Pinot Noir, taking a conservative approach is well advised. One false step can be the difference between perfection and swill. And much like a fine wine, Lexus' best-selling vehicle was developed carefully in a measured, logical fashion; one false, radical step could mean the difference between star and also-ran.

Though at a passing glance the 2010 RX 350 looks similar to the outgoing model, not much is shared between the two. Yet with the exception of semi-significant increases in track width (2.2 inches front, 2.6 inches rear), most key dimensions are similar to last year's RX. However, with a weight gain of more than 400 pounds, the 2010 RX 350 is substantially more full-bodied.

There are a couple of solid reasons for the increased mass — a more robust structure to promote greater crashworthiness and more standard features. The latter include heavier 18-inch wheels and tires (versus last year's 17s), bigger brakes and a keyless ignition system. Because of the typical negative effects on performance and fuel economy, we usually regard weight gain with the same disdain as The Biggest Loser fitness instructors do. Yet it doesn't seem to affect the new RX 350 which, based on our back-to-back drives of 2009 and 2010 editions, feels more athletic thanks to sharpened steering and a revamped suspension. The latter features a rear double-wishbone setup that not only improves handling but opens up more cargo space behind the seats thanks to its more compact design.

In addition to its more composed road manners, the 2010 Lexus RX 350 also brings an easier way to operate its available navigation system. Called Remote Touch, the new interface replaces the former touchscreen setup with a mouselike controller located on the center console. The new interface is immediately intuitive and a comfort to those spooked by previous exposure to multifunction controllers (iDrive, anyone?).

As before, the Lexus RX 350 is a pleasant drive. Incrementally improved, the latest RX should prove to be as palatable to luxury SUV consumers as a carefully crafted Pinot Noir.

Should I lease or buy a 2010 Lexus RX 350?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
