Having a family means you having a specific set of priorities you need in a vehicle. The size of your family matters, too. Thankfully, Lexus thought of every family and need when they designed the 2020 RX 350!

Families require space, utility, and functionality. Even more so, they need technology to make their already-hectic lives easier.

One thing families deserve, though? Functional luxury and that’s where the Lexus RX 350 rises about competitors like the Acura RDX and BMW X5.

This post will break down five reasons why the Lexus RX is the perfect family SUV. Shopping in Edmonton for a five-row or seven-seater SUV? Test drive a 2020 Lexus RX or RXL today and experience amazing for yourself!

Room To Grow

The 2020 Lexus RX has room for up to five passengers with 2826 litres of passenger space. If your family needs more, opt for the Lexus RXL which gives you a third-row of seating to accommodate seven passengers.

The 2020 RX 350 has 521 litres of space behind the rear seats and a total of 1594.2 litres with them folded down.

If you decide to go with the seven-passenger Lexus RX 350L, you get even more space with 1877 litres of cargo space behind the third row that equates to 1571 litres of cargo space with the rear seats laid down.

Most family haulers sacrifice luxury for convenience and utility. It’s quite the opposite in the Lexus RX. Standard features include leather upholstery with premium leather trim, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats and power-reclining second-row seats available in upper trim levels.

Safety To Protect Your Loved Ones

Your family is your top priority and so is their safety. You need a vehicle that comes equipped with the best safety technology on the market. Lexus Safety System 2.0 (LSS+) comprises some of the most advanced active safety systems available and it all comes standard in the RX 350.

Millimeter-wave radar and a high-resolution camera are the innovative features behind LSS+. Together they scan for hazards and alert five active safety programs to take action — everything from warning you of potential dangers to automatically performing protective maneuvers.

New for 2020, the RX 350 now includes bicycle detection, lane centering, and road-sign assistance. This is in combination with already available features like automatic front braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, and adaptive cruise control.

Technology That Makes Life Easy

Life is hectic enough as a parent. You need a vehicle that’s intuitive and helpful; an SUV that makes life easier. Lexus has equipped the RX 350 with all the technology needed to do just that.

In addition to standard Apple CarPay and Android Auto, the Lexus RX 350 has made some exciting changes for 2020. Gone is the once cumbersome trackpad.

The RX 350 is now home to a brand new standard 8.0-inch (available 12.3-inch) display touchscreen, which sits 5.5 inches closer to the driver making it easy-to-use at all times.

Families will also love the new Lexus App which allows owners to remote start and lock their RX. Not sure whether you need to fuel up? Check the app for current fuel levels!

Love the look-and-feel of the F-Sport model? Get rewarded with dozens of exciting upgrades like front and rear LED lighting, rear cross-traffic braking, and sports suspension, just to name a few.

Luxury and Functionality Meet

One thing Edmonton families know is that functionality doesn’t have to mean sacrificing the finer things in life. The RX was designed as an SUV you can rely on and be proud of.

The RX 350’s 3.5-liter direct-injected V6 engine puts out a powerful 295 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. Don’t expect a noisy cabin, though. The RX delivers power and smoothness, providing a soft ride and keeping the cabin quiet as ever.

Luxury amenities abound inside the RX 350. Opt for features like a Heated Steering Wheel or an 8-way Power Adjustable Driver Seat. There’s also an available Kick Sensor Power Back Door for those moments when your hands are full.

Or, have it all and go with the Luxury or Executive Package which adds dozens of luxuries families will rejoice over.
