2014 Lexus RX 350 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Lexus RX 350?

The 2014 Lexus RX 350 is a five-seat SUV that competes with the Acura MDX, Cadillac SRX and Lincoln MKX. It is offered in Base and F Sport trim levels. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available. There is also a hybrid version, the Lexus RX 450h, covered separately on Cars.com.

What's New on the 2014 Lexus RX 350?

The 2014 RX 350 is now available with Siri Eyes Free Mode, which allows the use of voice commands to take and make calls, get directions, compose text messages and more. A rear 115-volt household power outlet is also newly available.

What Features in the 2014 Lexus RX 350 Are Most Important?

The base RX 350 is powered by a 270-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The F Sport model has the same engine, but it's mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on the base model, but all-wheel drive is available (and standard on the F Sport model).

Significant standard features include LED daytime running lights, fabric upholstery, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, spindle-style grille, real wood trim, a sliding and reclining split-bench rear seat, foglights, perforated black leather upholstery with white contrast stitching (F Sport), 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a power liftgate, automatic dual-zone air conditioning and a six-CD audio system with iPod connectivity and Bluetooth streaming audio.

Significant available features include high-intensity-discharge headlights, a mesh grille, heated and ventilated front seats, a black headliner and aluminum pedals (F Sport), head-up display, power moonroof, Mark Levinson premium audio system, heated steering wheel, power-folding side mirrors, leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels, a navigation system with backup camera and dual-screen rear entertainment.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, 10 airbags, an electronic stability system and an emergency communication system with a one-year trial subscription. Optional safety features include a precollision system with adaptive cruise control and a blind spot warning system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Lexus RX 350?

The 2014 Lexus RX 350 is extremely comfortable and a pleasure to drive. While there are some missteps – such as a mixture of high-end wood trim with cheap-looking plastics, and an infotainment system that's not very intuitive – its mixture of practical interior storage and otherwise generous features make it a winner for families.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
