2019 Lexus RX 350L Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Lexus RX?

The Lexus RX mid-size luxury SUV is available in gas RX 350 or hybrid RX 450h form. There’s also a performance-oriented F Sport model and extended three-row L versions. All use a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, and the RX 450h adds electric motors. The RX 350 is available with front- or all-wheel drive, and the RX 450h is all-wheel-drive only with an electric motor driving the rear wheels. Competitors include the Cadillac XT5 , Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.

What’s New on the 2019 Lexus RX?

The RX’s remote function adds smart watch and Amazon Alexa device compatibility.

What Features in the 2019 Lexus RX Are Most Important?

The standard Lexus Safety System Plus includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. The RX 450h’s fuel-saving hybrid drivetrain achieves 30 mpg combined in EPA testing.

Should I Buy the 2019 Lexus RX?

Often credited with creating the luxury crossover SUV class, the Lexus RX continues to please buyers looking for refinement. However, our editors find it less engaging to drive than some competitors and are continually frustrated with its optional Remote Touch multimedia interface.  The cramped third-row seat in extended L versions is of dubious usefulness, too.

As reliable as any Toyota

by Unhappy from San Juan, PR on May 20, 2020

Car is ok but a very expensive Highlander! The same noisy weak highlander engine drivetrain, brakes. Honestly you’d be getting an almost equally car with the top of the line Toyota platinum Highlander... Read full review

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.
