2013 Lexus RX 350 F Sport: A Real-World Walk-Around
Lexus more or less invented the luxury crossover market back in 1999, with the introduction of the RX 300 SUV. Through the ensuing 13 years, the company has kept the RX at the forefront of the premium-crossover SUV segment by executing a couple well-done redesigns, adding a gas-electric hybrid model, and generally staying true to the RX’s solid original concept.
Though the RX has been a class benchmark ever since its introduction, one thing it has never really been is sporty. That’s changing—a little—for 2013. An RX will probably never be the choice of serious enthusiast drivers, but that didn’t stop Lexus from giving RX buyers a performance-themed option with the introduction of the 2013 RX 350 F Sport. Let’s take a quick walk-around.
