Used Lexus RX 350: Interior Dimensions

From the moment it debuted, the Lexus RX 350 has been a real head-turner. However, the best part about its design isn't the aesthetic-it's the interior versatility and space. The exact interior dimensions may vary based on the model year you choose, but most models measure up like this:

Seating Capacity

5 passengers

Headroom (front/rear)

39/37.7 inches

Legroom (front/rear)

43.1/36.8 inches

Hip Room (front/rear)

55.5/54.5 inches

Cargo Capacity (behind second/first row)

40/80.3 cubic feet

The interior of a used RX 350 has space for up to five passengers. It's cavernous enough to fit the entire family comfortably, and most model years come with around 40 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row.

For more space, the rear seats can be lowered in a snap. That'll give you more than 80 cubic feet of maximum cargo space behind the first row. From luggage to a small piece of furniture, the RX 350 can accommodate all your cargo needs.

Used Lexus RX 350: Connected Tech

Used Lexus RX 350 Review

The Lexus RX 350 has gone through a variety of upgrades over the years, but it's always been the car for advanced tech features. Just about every model year offers convenient connected technology, like:

  • Bluetooth® connectivity
  • Premium surround sound audio system
  • iPod®/iPhone® connectivity
  • Siri® Eyes Free functionality
  • Navigation System
  • DVD Rear-Seat Entertainment System

You'll be able to sync your smartphone to a used Lexus RX 350, so you'll have access to all your favorite playlists and smartphone apps. When your favorite song comes on, you may be able to crank up the volume on a 15-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System, which is available with most model years.

Whether you have the kids in the back seat or the folks back there are just young-at-heart, it'll be easy to keep everyone occupied on trips both long and short. The available Rear-Seat Entertainment System comes with two 7-inch LCD screens on the left and the right. Your passengers can watch their favorite movie or hook up a gaming console.

You'll be able to stay on course wherever the journey may lead, thanks to the available Navigation System. Newer models may come with NavTraffic™, NavWeather™, and Fuel Prices powered by SiriusXM®, so you'll be able to plot a route with the most up-to-date information.

Is a Used Lexus RX 350 Safe?

Lexus has long been a pioneer in automotive safety, which is why just about every used Lexus RX 350 comes with a bevy of features that'll give you more peace of mind.

As of 2016, the Lexus Safety System+ comes standard. It integrates several driver-assistive technologies that are available on earlier model years. They include:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Intelligent high-beam headlamps
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Lane Keep Assist

The advanced Pre-Collision System will keep you safe, secure, and aware every time you get behind the wheel. It will alert you to imminent collisions with a pedestrian or other vehicle. If you don't react in time, it can even apply the brakes to lessen the severity of the impact or possibly avoid it altogether.

If you're looking for more parking prowess, a used RX 350 will have your back-literally. Most models come with a backup camera to give you a better view of what lies behind you. It may be coupled with the available Intuitive Parking Assist, which uses sensors to alert you when you get too close to a potential obstacle in the front or back.

Power and Performance for a Used RX 350

Used Lexus RX 350 Review

The performance of a used Lexus RX 350 covers all the bases. It can go from powerful and capable to efficient. Pre-owned RX 350 SUVs come with a 3.5L V6 engine that can achieve up to 270 horsepower, depending on the model year.

A used RX 350 is built for fun and excitement to go along with its efficiency and practicality. In fact, most model years can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in less than eight seconds. That's sure to get your heart racing!

Most of these vehicles also come with a cutting-edge all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which is a system designed to distribute power to specific wheels for optimum road grip. Plus, it can help boost efficiency and overall performance when the roads are clear and smooth.

Thanks to its powerful engine and performance options, a used Lexus RX 350 can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Lexus RX 350 MPG Ratings 2010 - 2016

The Lexus RX 350 is one of the most fuel-efficient used SUVs you can get. Its V6 engine works alongside a 6-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence, which helps optimize its MPG rating.

2016 FWD

EPA-estimated 20 city/28 highway MPG

2016 AWD

Your EPA-estimated MPG rating will vary based on the model year and drivetrain you choose. Any Lexus RX 350 between 2010 and 2015 with front-wheel drive (FWD) boasts an EPA-estimated 18 city/25 highway MPG.

If you opt for newer model years like the 2016, you'll get to enjoy an efficient EPA-estimated 20 city/28 highway MPG with FWD. If you go for the more capable AWD, you'll still get to take advantage of an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway MPG.

Do you need the enhanced fuel economy of a hybrid? The Lexus RX 450h comes with many of the same features you've come to love from the 350, but is armed with a hybrid powertrain.
