If you’re going to be traveling halfway across the US, why not do it in luxury?
Lexus usually isn’t a brand that catches our attention like Audi, BMW, or Mercedes does. When the RX 350L arrived, it quickly caught our attention. The color Lexus has named Autumn Shimmer has an intriguing shift in colors from a sparkling brown in the shade, to an underlying tone of a deep purple when out in the sun. We’d never thought a brown would stand out so much and we loved it!
Once we got in, we couldn’t believe how well the plum colored accents and the white interior worked together. On our 1500 mile road trip, we were able to get the advertised 25mpg out of the 3.5 Liter 290HP V6 engine that’s connected to the all wheel drive system. The L trim offered the additional row of seating which we occupied with our luggage for the trip.
The feature that we were most surprised with was the Lexus Safety System +. The cruise control was smooth when it needed to adjust the speed when we encountered slower traffic, all while we traveled at night.
We were extremely surprised at how much we enjoyed the RX 350L and they have our attention to check out some of their other lineup.
