2012 Lexus RX 350 Features

Features

The 2012 Lexus RX models really won't leave you wanting; the standard-equipment list is exhaustive and comprehensive, and the options are reserved for interior and infotainment upgrades, largely.

The RX 350 is still sold in a single trim level and includes a twelve-speaker sound sytem, Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone climate control, and ten-way power front seats.

The 2012 Lexus RX 350 offers some enticing high-tech upgrades, but the base package offers plenty of luxury appeal.

Upgraded leather seating, a side-view monitor, USB connectivity for MP3 players, a Mark Levinson sound system, a hard-drive navigation system, XMNavTraffic, a rear-seat entertainment system, ventilated front seats, remote start, LED adaptive headlamps, and a sport-minded suspension are all among the extras. A head-up display is also available to cut down further on driving distraction. Watch the bottom line, though, as prices can rise significantly.

Lexus has adopted a "Remote Touch" controller bundled with its navigation system; it acts like a computer mouse to control audio, climate, GPS and other systems. It's yet another distinct take on infotainment interfaces; one one side, it takes less time to learn than the knob-style systems from Germany, or the voice-command-driven MyFord Touch system, but we're not all that convinced that keeping your eye on the mouse pointer while driving is a good idea.
