There were other competitors later but the 2014 Lexus RX 350 is still one of the choices for a luxury crossover.

There are also plenty of standard features that came with a nice collection of useful convenience and high-tech options. One would not find much fault in this model but the only significant turnoff is the lack of a third-row seat and an electronics interface that would take more attention to operate.
