The 2008 Lexus RX 350 base model is fitted with an array of standard features, but many options are bundled into expensive packages.

According to Automotive.com, "cloth upholstery, automatic dual-zone climate control, a 132-watt AM/FM/cassette stereo with eight-speakers and an in-dash, six-CD changer, cruise control, privacy glass, automatic headlamps, 10-way power adjustment for both front seats, and leather trim for the steering wheel and shift knob" are all standard equipment. Edmunds adds, "The Lexus RX 350's level of standard equipment is impressive and includes a power rear liftgate, auto-dimming mirrors all around, wood interior trim, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, four one-touch power windows and second-row seats that slide and recline."

Options come in packages. According to Automotive.com, "the Premium Package includes leather upholstery, power tilt/telescope steering wheel, a roof rack, power moonroof and entry lights that illuminate the ground below the doors," while "the Premium Plus Package...adds high-intensity discharge headlamps that turn in the direction of travel...the Lexus RX 350 2008 Performance Package includes 8-inch graphite-colored aluminum alloy wheels with wider tires, height-adjustable air suspension, sequential-shifting transmission, and rain-sensing wipers." This source adds that "heated front seats can be ordered as a stand-alone option" for every Lexus RX 350.

Edmunds reports "available Lexus RX 350 2008 features such as a rearview camera, adaptive headlights (which swivel slightly in the direction you are turning) and a voice-activated navigation system mean that this midsize luxury sport-ute gives up nothing to the more expensive prestige-brand SUVs when it comes to technology."

They also note “a stunning Mark Levinson audio system and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones” are offered, "but
the Mark Levinson system is only available as part of a pricey package.”

Conclusion

The 2008 Lexus RX 350 offers the luxury features buyers expect from a Lexus—and one of the best audio systems on the market.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
