Lexus RX 350 F Sport Review

Lexus' luxurious SUV is the ideal vehicle for discerning drivers who desire style and sportiness, prestige and performance. Fitted with the same fun yet thrifty 270-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6, the F Sport edition adds performance-boosting features such as an intelligent 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a lateral damping system that improves response and ride comfort. A handsome, leather-trimmed interior with the Lexus Enform infotainment system, dual rear LCD screens and available Mark Levinson premium surround sound is sure to satisfy both driver and passengers.
