Lexus Rx 350 - 2007

by : NIHAL

The Lexus badge was launched in December last year in Malaysia. Thus far it has brought in tremendous response, with their earlier launches ; LS 460L and GS 300. And the anticipation is that the newly launched Lexus RX 350 is expected to draw strong interest from luxury vehicle buyers. The all new Lexus RX 350 is the second generation RX, representing the pinnacle of their brands.

Apparently when Lexus 300 was introduced to the American market in 1998, it was the first ever SUV crossover, creating and defining an entirely new category of automobile. Nowadays it's becoming a trendsetter around the globe. If you look into the statistics, SUV crossovers are one of the industry's most popular and dynamic segments.

Technically, the RX 350 comes with a - 3.5 litre, 24 valve DOHC V6 engine, delivering 272hp. Feature's included - Dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i). Power reaches the 18-inch alloy wheels via a five speed Super ECT sequential transmission, allowing for fully automatic or manual managed gear changes. There is also a AWD (All Wheel Drive) system, coupled with McPherson struts at each corner, providing good road holding and superior grip. Other fantastic features found on this beauty ; Power management and braking technology such as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution(EBD) and also Brake Assist (BA).

The interiors features automatic dual climate control and an air-filtration system for cooler drives. The multi-panel wide opening moon-roof, which is 1.5 times wider than conventional units, offers panoramic views. To make things extra special for the driver, the electro-luminescent meter instrumentation in the control panel is displayed in a stylish three-pod layout and is complemented by a three-spoke steering wheel with intergrated audio switches.

I like this the most, Lexus RX 350 has got a Mark Levinson sound system complete with 11 speakers, thus creating impeccable sonic reproduction! Currently enjoying incredible success in the United States, thanks to it's unrivalled build quality, improved performance added with luxury fittings. I seriously feel that the Lexus RX 350 would definitely be in the top of everyone's wish list.

As with all Lexus models thus far, the RX 350 also comes with a 3 year warranty or 100,000km (whichever comes first). The next big question on your mind's, how much will it cost you to bring this baby back??? Well, in Malaysia, it would cost you RM373,000 (Individual Private Registrations) and RM373,200(Company Private) but take note that the prices stated here are without insurance.

For this price, Lexus RX 350 is bound to make waves and take it's place at the top.
