2010 Lexus RX 350 Pricing Unveiled
The engine is now mated to a six-speed automatic transmission compared to the five-speed unit installed on the old RX 350 model. The transmission box also features the Multi-Mode system that allows the driver to shift to manual mode “by first moving the gated shift lever to the “S” slot and then pushing it forward ("+") to up shift and backward ("-") to downshift,” as Lexus explained in a statement for the press.
In terms of features, the 2010 RX 350 has an absolutely amazing equipment lineup, starting with Intelligent Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) and ending with the Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) handling technology.
“When entering a corner, AFS estimates where the vehicle will be in three seconds, based on the vehicle speed and the angle of the tires, and adjusts the lateral aim of the headlamps. Using a camera mounted on the inner rear view mirror, a new available automatic high beam system switches between high and low beams in response to oncoming vehicles and those traveling in front, or when other ambient sources are detected, helping reduce driver inconvenience,” Lexus explained its advanced lighting system.
There are six airbags available, including side curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, rear side airbags (for the outboard seating positions) and knee airbags for the driver and the front passenger.
Other features highlights include 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (19-inch wheels come as optional), SmartAccess keyless-entry system, Hard Disc Drive (HDD) navigation system, USB inputs, Bluetooth Audio wireless connectivity and standard XM satellite radio capability.
