But is the model really good, as all the fans of this brand expect? Let’s try to carefully consider all the changes and transformations in this model.
Despite the solid status of the Lexus RX 350 of 2018, there are many important, worthy competitors. Indeed, the car has an uncommon, beautiful appearance, spacious, comfortable interior.
In addition to an additional row of seats, the car received a rich technical filling and topical, at the moment, corporate design. He has extended diamond-shaped headlights with three focusing lenses in each and L-shaped LED daytime running lights. The grille has quite impressive dimensions and extends from the edge of the bonnet to the bottom of the front bumper.

Front of the new model Lexus RX 2017-2018 (photo, price) received a large branded radiator grille in the style of an hourglass – the grid on it differs for different modifications. In addition, all lighting equipment is now diode, including a new narrow head optics, original tail lights, navigation lights and fog lights.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN
In appearance, the predecessor of the new Lexus PX 350 model caused a lot of complaints, as the appearance of this car was considered pretty fresh and boring. The fourth generation of this model is unlikely to be subject to such criticism.
In front of the car there is a grille, made in the style of the manufacturer (there is an imitation of the appearance of the hourglass). This picture is complemented by the following noteworthy elements:
The original hood, which has powerful punching;
head-narrowed optics, which has a predatory squint, and also equipped with LED corners (used as navigation lights);
sections of complex shape, located in the body of the bumper (front);
large and comfortable doors, located in the side of the car body;
compact and high glazing, which is well combined with arches (wheel);
mirrors (exterior), providing a rear view.
The roof of the car, which is domed, fits the car very organically. At the rear of the vehicle is the optics, which is L-shaped. It is completely filled with LEDs, which ensures optimum brightness of the light flux. It is important to emphasize the door that opens the luggage compartment, as well as the rear bumper undercut, and the spoiler.
In general, the machine has a great appearance from either side. It can be noted that the exterior is a powerful weapon of this car in winning numerous fans. Cars belonging to previous generations, by design of the exterior are not even close to the novelty. If you measure the dimensions, then an increase in the parameters is observed almost in all directions. The only exception was the height, which fell by 30 mm. Obviously, the exterior is a very powerful weapon in the struggle for customers. Previous generations, despite their good design, can not even be put close to the fourth generation of the Lexus RX. If we talk about the dimensions of the novelty, then the car shows an increase in almost all directions. An exception was the height in which the car lost 30 millimeters in comparison with its predecessor. In general, the actual dimensions in figures are as follows: length – 4890 millimeters; width – 1895 millimeters; height – 1690 millimeters; wheelbase – 2790 millimeters; ground clearance – 180 millimeters.
The interior equipment of the novelty is as attractive as the new model Lexus RX 300 of 2018, a photo, the price of which is reflected in us. In the interior of the new car you can distinguish the following features:

Separately, mention should be made of the central tunnel, which separates the driver and the passenger who is in front. There is a handle for controlling the transmission, as well as a joystick, through which the information and entertainment complex is managed. It is quite comfortable and on the back sofa of the car (there is a stock of space above the heads of people).
The lateral areas have advantages in terms of providing heating. Do not manually fold the sections, because there is an electric drive for this. If desired, the customer can order a pair of displays (at an additional cost), providing video viewing during the movement. Even the three of us will be more than convenient to go. However, the side seats have their advantages in the form of heating. It is not necessary to manually fold the sections, since an electric drive is provided for this. If the customer has a desire, he will be able to order two additional displays, with which the rear passengers will watch movies on the road.
According to technical parameters, the novelty has some resemblance to the new model Lexus RX 200 of 2018, a photo, the price of which is on our website. Despite the increased size, the novelty is characterized by good mobility. Suspension (front) was developed for roads with poor coverage, so in the Russian reality this car will be indispensable.

The manufacturers themselves are not interested in the price of the car increased, then the demand for it will also go down.
