Are the 2017 Lexus GS 350 Standard Features a Good Value?

November 12th, 2016 by

Acura RLXChicagoland drivers know that exciting standard features can make or break one’s daily commute, and what’s more, they know that not all luxury SUVs have been equipped with equal offerings. A starting price of $50,695 MSRP has made the 2017 Lexus GS 350 a popular choice this year, but discerning buyers know that a lower base cost doesn’t always equate to a better value. In fact, those who want to enjoy more of the time they spend behind the wheel would be better off choosing the 2017 Acura RLX. Even with its baseline Technology Package equipped, the RLX offers many more standard features than the GS 350, and front-wheel drive models are priced at $54,540 MSRP.*

Comfort and Convenience with the RLX Standard Features

The standard features on the Lexus GS 350 include a rearview camera, steering wheel–mounted controls, and two front power outlets, but if you’re satisfied with these options then you simply haven’t seen what the competition is offering! In the Acura RLX, drivers will receive all of the features listed above plus front power lumbar support, rear heating/air-conditioning controls, and noise/sound cancellation. In addition, the RLX also comes equipped with a 15GB hard drive disk, making it easy for you to ditch unwanted devices and reduce clutter. Although GS 350 drivers will have the option to purchase lumbar support and rear controls separately, Lexus only offers an onboard hard drive and noise/sound cancellation in its more expensive, upper-level trims. On top of all this, the RLX’s clever design makes it easy for everyone to enjoy these standard features in complete comfort! The RLX offers 102.1 cubic feet of total passenger volume, while the GS 350 is only able to provide 99 cubic feet of seating space.

Take the RLX for a Test Drive!

The standard features of the 2017 Acura RLX give it a distinct edge over the 2017 Lexus GS 350, but its advantages don’t end there! To get a sense of what the RLX can do for you, call or stop by one of our Chicagoland Acura Dealers locations today!
