2016 Lexus RX

I received a complimentary trip in exchange for this post
All opinions are 100% my own

Not too long ago I had the opportunity to test drive the Lexus NX 300H and so when Lexus emailed me and asked if I wanted to visit South Carolina and test out the newly designed RX line, I couldn't wait to say yes!

The LexusRX has 4 different models. A 350, 350 F Sport, a 450h (hybrid) And a 450h F Sport. 
A mid priced crossover. The 350 starts at $41,900 and the 450h F Sport is $55,645. 

The features packed into this vehicle are impeccable and really can't be beat.

 I really love the design more than I thought I would. It's very aggressive, but is luxurious and dare I say, sexy! Very distinct lines on the outside of the vehicle, lets everyone know you're driving a Lexus before they even see the rear of the vehicle. 

Very gorgeous and something that you can LOVE driving!

Lexus Enform App Suite is the Lexus exclusive entertainment system. It allows you to use mobile applications while driving and riding in the vehicle. Voice recognition, stream music and more. And it's free for 1 year after purchasing the vehicle.

 I loved these red leather seats in the Hybrid I got to drive!

The Lexus RX Models have an UNHEARD OF 12.3" screen! It takes up the whole center of the dashboard and is something that is VERY easy to get used to!

The RX models feature all weather drive which monitors road conditions in real time, shifting engine power between front and rear axles. 
You can also select drive mode in the center console via a dial. There's Eco, Normal/Customize and Sport mode. 

The different models really are just for different people. Although the 350 is BASIC, it absolutely is NOT basic by any means in terms of safety or styling. 
The F Sport is more sporty, Chrome pedals for instance give it more of a sporty or manly look. 
And the Hybrid, is obviously a Hybrid which gets better gas mileage in the city. 

Pre collision system with pedestrian detection, All speed dynamic radar cruise control (this was my favorite on the NX model), 10 standard airbag system, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, backup camera, blind spot monitor and more.

The 350 and 350 F Sport get a Highway Rating of 28mpg, the Hybrid is combined of 30mpg as well as the Hybrid F Sport.

Overall a wonderful crossover that anybody and any generation can appreciate!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Charleston getting to explore these new vehicles as well as the city!

You can see more pictures of the RX models on my instagram and see where they all went during our 3 day stay!
