Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com conclude that there’s little in the area of comfort and quality that eludes the 2009 Lexus RX 350.
Kelley Blue Book notes that the 2009 RX 350 "pairs supportive 10-way power seats with a 40/20/40 rear bench that splits, folds, slides, reclines, and will comfortably handle two full-size adults or a trio of kids." However, no third-row seat is available. Car and Driver says, "the Lexus RX 350 2009 supplies five adults an immaculate interior, prolific luxury appointments...a very comfy middle ground for many." According to Automotive.com, "The Lexus RX 350 feels spacious when you settle in...luxurious and inviting...optional leather upholstery is luxuriously soft and slightly bunched...the seat bottoms are relatively flat, making it easy to slide in and out." As if this were not enough, Edmunds reports, "the second-row seat reclines, slides fore and aft and is split 40/20/40 to optimize both passenger comfort."
According to Edmunds, "behind that [rear] seat there are 38.3 cubic feet of luggage space; flip the seat down and cargo capacity increases to 85 cubes...highly refined it its operation, the standard power liftgate makes life easier when the Lexus RX 350 2009 is used as a beast of burden."
ConsumerGuide states simply, "RX models feature exemplary cabin materials and workmanship." Edmunds praises its “rich ambiance.” Automotive.com deems "the switches and controls to be among the best." Kelley Blue Book says the Lexus RX 350 cabin "has a quality appearance with an impressive level of fit and finish."
Kelley Blue Book notes that the 2009 Lexus RX 350 "cabin is well isolated from wind and road noise," confirming what TheCarConnection.com’s editors also register.
The 2009 Lexus RX 350 may not be at the very top of its class in terms of comfort and quietness, but it comes close.
