Lexus ES 350 and RX 350 Earn Best in Class from Kiplinger

By | Lexus Cars, Lexus News | No Comments

Kiplinger’s Best in Class winners are based on performance, value and safety, as well as driving impressions from road tests.

Lexus EX 350
Best Car $30,000 – $40,000
A redesign gives this perennial Kiplinger favorite a bold new look for 2013. From the aggressive “spindle” grille to the dual exhaust, the exterior of the ES hints at the sportier character underneath. While it keeps the 3.5-liter V6, it gets suspension and steering changes as well as a stiffer body for better feel behind the wheel.

Lexus RX
Best Midsize & Large Crossover
An exterior refresh for 2013 gives the RX the bold new Lexus family fascia, complete with the signature “spindle” grille. The hybrid drivetrain not only boosts fuel economy to 30 mpg in combined city and highway driving (versus the gas-engine RX’s 21) but also adds 25 horses. Ten airbags, stellar resale values and luxurious appointments are standard on both models.
