Comparing 2016 Lexus RX 350 vs 2016 Infiniti QX 60 in Edmonton, AB
Lexus has shown that it has once again redefined the luxury crossover segment with the fully redesigned 2016 Lexus RX 350. As the best-selling model in the Lexus line-up the 2016 RX looks to build on that trend with a completely redesigned luxurious interior wrapped in a chiseled, attractive new body style. The large dose of Lexus brand DNA that’s been artfully incorporated into the details can not only be seen, but also felt. The re-imagined RX boasts exceptional on-road performance and safety.
Smooth, Powerful and Efficient Engines Under the Hood
Under the hood is an upgraded and more powerful 3.5-litre V6 aiming to deliver 300 hp and comes mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Based on this improved powertrain is the hybrid model’s Atkinson-cycle 3.5-litre V6. And when combined with the electric motor, the total output results in more than 300 hp. And, all RX engines have been tuned to achieve high fuel economy and low carbon emissions.
Better Handling and Stability
When it comes to delivering precise, controlled handling, the new RX offers impressive dynamic capability. The entire chassis has been fortified to provide better stability and control through turns. The vehicle’s body structure has been strengthened with added stiffness, helping to drastically improve its handling response while reducing engine and road noise in the cabin. The vehicle also features innovative technology, such as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), each system designed to recognize potentially dangerous situations and make automatic and often transparent adjustments to ensure the car remains in control when entering and exiting corners. Also, All-Wheel Drive improves the RX’s handling performance and stability on both dry and slick surfaces alike.
The RX’s fully independent suspension system, which consists of MacPherson struts up front and a double wishbone setup at rear, has been tuned and reinforced to improve handling while keeping ride quality remarkably smooth. Available on most RX versions is the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), which electronically monitors and adapts the suspension damping and steering to ensure optimal handling and ride depending on the driving conditions. This means that wherever the RX goes, the AVS will automatically make lightning-quick adjustments to the shock absorber settings, ensuring the smoothest ride quality possible. The system is also designed to produce less body lean through corners, providing an engaging driving experience.
