Lexus RX 300 2018 review: snapshot

The cost of entry to the RX range is $74,251, which will buy you an RX300 Luxury. (RX 350 shown.)

The Lexus RX arrives in plenty of trim and engine combinations, so exactly how much yours will cost is largely up to you. 

The minimum cost, though, is $74,251, which will buy you an RX300 Luxury.  The range then steps up to the F Sport ($86,551), before topping out with the Sport Luxury, at $92,701. 

The Luxury-badged cars arrive with 20-inch alloy wheels, a powered tailgate, LED headlights and fog lights (with daytime running lights), keyless entry, roof rails and rain-sensing wipers. While inside, expect dual-zone climate control, sat nav, push-button start and leather trim.

Step up to the F Sport and you’ll add a bigger, 12.3-inch infotainment screen that adds a CD player and DVD player and pairs with a better Mark Levinson sound system complete with 15 speakers (including a subwoofer). Finally, the Sport Luxury adds with soft leather trim elements, heated seats in the second row and a power folding function for the backseat. 

The RX300’s four-cylinder turbo engine serves up 175kW/350Nm, channelling it through a six-speed automatic gearbox and sending it on to the front wheels.

Even the cheapest RX (which, admittedly, isn’t all that cheap) arrives with a long list of standard safety features, including a reversing camera, blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, AEB, lane assist and parking sensors (but no park assist). You’ll also find 10 airbags, and twin ISOFIX mountings for you baby car seat, too, as well as cruise control and the usual suite of braking and traction control systems.
