Lexus Best Deals: RX350 Base vs. UX200 FWD SUV

Even though the Lexus SUVs are in the class of the Mercedes Benz GLC and BMW X3, they are still reliable and comfortable midsize luxury vehicles. If you’re looking to buy an SUV that isn’t too large but will offer the best driving experience, Lexus has the best deals/ You can settle for either the RX350 Base or the VX200 FWD SUV. Let’s go over a brief review of these vehicles.

2022 Lexus RX 350 Review

The Lexus RX350 has been among the quiet and most comfortable choices of luxury crossover SUVs for some years now. It has kept up with the changing demands of its buyers and has a well-built and comfortable interior, making it a good value for your money.

Unfortunately, the Lexus RX350 isn’t known for outright performance, but it comes to overtaking when the traffic is slow or merging on the highway, the powerful and smooth V6 engine does the magic. This car takes 7.9 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph. That isn’t as fast as most of the cars in this class, but, it’s reliable. Some aggressive drivers will want to settle for this the all-wheel-drive because of its superior traction.

Unfortunately. The tyres are the major problem in this vehicle. However, they can still be used on twisty roads. The brakes provide smooth and easy stopping power. The transmission is slightly too eager to shift to a higher gear, but it does its work almost transparently.

When it comes to comfort, the Lexus RX350 is completely excellent. It has well-insulated windows and impressively comfortable seats covered in supple leather, and an easy-to-use and effective climate control system.


  • Very smooth and enjoyable driving experience
  • Large cargo space for loading items
  • Attractive and comfortable cabin made with quality materials


  • Poor fuel economy for a vehicle in this class
  • The touchpad controller is distracting to use

2022 Lexus UX 200 Review

This SUV is a Japanese luxury marque’s entry-level crossover SUV. Despite its small dimensions, the UX 200 has an impressive interior made of high-quality materials and an attractive dashboard layout.

The UX 200 comes with a standard dual-zone climate control system, an adaptive cruise control, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a blind-spot monitor, and a lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring. That positions it well against entry-level luxury competitors like the BMW X1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLB, though its interior space can’t be compared to those two.

Its acceleration is slow as it takes 8.9 seconds to reach 60 mph speed. However, with its smooth brake feel, there’s an assurance that the UX 200 is easy to drive.

The steering has a good on-center feel and steering resistance builds quickly, which makes the UX feel a bit more substantial than its size suggests, even though it lacks emergency braking. You don’t necessarily have to worry when driving around sweeping turns like a freeway on-ramp. Its MSRP starting price is between $33,450 to $38,490.


  • Can be maneuvered because of its small dimensions
  • Numerous optional and standard safety tech features
  • High fuel economy


  • The all-wheel-drive is only available on the UX 250h hybrid
  • Very small cargo bay with a high liftover height
  • Limited rear legroom
  • The infotainment system is difficult to navigate

In summary, from the review above, the Lexus RX350 has more standard features than the UX 200. However, they come with their uniqueness. You may settle for the UX 200 if you need a vehicle that’s easier to drive.
