2013 Lexus RX350 Review
Reviewed by Automotive on
Vehicle OverviewA comfortable ride and nice interior usually seal the deal for the 2013 Lexus RX in its never-ending quest to find a new home. For the 2013 model year, you can get the Lexus RX in five different models including the RX 350 FWD, RX 350 AWD, RX 350 F-Sport AWD, RX 450h FWD, and the RX 450h AWD. All five aforementioned models use a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, rated at 370 horsepower for the gasoline variants, and 395 horsepower for the hybrid models. Yes, the performance-oriented F-Sport model has the same amount of horsepower as the other, tamer variants. Take what you will from that. The RX 350 F-Sport does use an eight-speed automatic transmission while the other two gas RX models use a six-speed automatic gearbox. The hybrid RX models employ a continuously variable transmission.
The 2013 Lexus RX strolls into the latest model year with the brand's new design language present up front. As if the spindle grille isn't enough of a tip-off, inside, the interior receives some tweaks and minor additions as well. Now, a power liftgate and iPod interface are included as standard features too. Of course, the RX can now be dressed in F-Sport trimmings, though the jury is still out on what exactly that does. We're interested in getting some wheel time with the new Lexus RX F-Sport before arriving at a final verdict, though.
New for 2013Like every other model in the Lexus arsenal, the 2013 RX's exterior has been redesigned while the interior receives minor changes.
