The 2009 Lexus RX 350 Base abounds with upscale features to keep most families happy. Relatively unchanged from last year, the front-wheel drive 2009 RSX 350 Base starts with a Macpherson strut front and rear suspension supporting two rows of seats for five passengers. All this is powered by a 270-hp, 24-valve 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine with variable valve timing, paired with a 5-speed automatic. It puts out 251 ft-lbs of torque at 4,700 RPM and gets 18/23 mpg.
Like most SUVs, the 2009 RX 350 Base features 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats that also recline. These open onto a 38-cubic-foot trunk that expands to 85 cubic feet. An armrest holds more storage. A power liftgate provides easy access. The rear window does not open separately, but does feature its own intermittent wiper, along with front intermittent wipers. Standard features include 10-way power front seats, power windows, locks, and heated mirrors, a trip computer, remote entry, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a garage remote, dual-zone climate control, tilt steering, a temperature gauge and compass, and leather and wood trim on the steering wheel and consoles. The 8-speaker radio features a 6-CD changer with MP3 playback. Three 12V power outlets reside up front, in the back, and in the cargo area. On the outside, you get 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, a chrome grille, and a rear spoiler. Roof rails can be added.
A strong safety profile includes traction and stability control, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, and dual front-side airbags, a driver's knee airbag, and side curtain airbags for both rows. Automatic headlights hold halogen lamps. Foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a tire monitor, and a first aid kit are also standard. An optional tow hitch lets the RX 350 haul up to 3,500 pounds. Various packages add memory settings for the driver, a sunroof, a rearview camera, heated seats, a voice-activated navigation system, a DVD player, Bluetooth, power tilt and telescopic steering, and an 11-speaker sound system. An air suspension, 18-inch wheels, dynamic cruise control, HID xenon lamps, headlight washers, and rain-sensing wipers add extra performance and safety features.

Intended more for slippery road conditions than for true off-road performance, the 2009 Lexus RX 350 Base AWD comes with a limited-slip center differential, but no low-range gearing. The automatic system distributes torque where needed, but reduces fuel economy somewhat to 17/22 mpg. The 3.5-liter DOHC V6 and 5-speed automatic put out 270 hp and 251 ft-lbs of torque. The midsize SUV rides on an independent Macpherson strut suspension, with 17-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires keeping a grip on the road. A tire monitor is included. Larger 18-inch wheels are available.
Like the front-wheel drive version, the 2009 RX 350 Base AWD features 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, electronic brake assist and brakeforce distribution, front and rear stabilizer bars, and traction and stability control. The dual front-side airbags come with passenger deactivation, and there are side curtain airbags for both rows. In terms of lighting, you get automatic headlights, halogen lamps, foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and daytime running lights. Adaptive lights with xenon HID lamps are optional, as are a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, an air suspension, and dynamic cruise control.
Seating five in two rows, the 2009 RX 350 Base AWD holds anywhere from 38 to 85 cubic feet of storage with the 40/20/40 split-folding rear bench down. The backseat also reclines and gets 36 inches of legroom and its own power outlet. The cargo area also has a power outlet, tiedowns, and a power liftgate. Roof rails cost extra. Full power features include remote entry, 10-way front seats (driver's memory settings optional), a garage remote, a trip computer, and a 6-CD/MP3 player, with the option to add satellite radio and an upgraded sound system. Wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, tilt and telescopic steering, a temperature display and compass, five cupholders, intermittent front and rear wipers, leather and wood accents, and dual-zone climate control contribute comfort and convenience. Most of the long list of options come in packages that include a DVD player, navigation system, a sunroof, heated seats, Bluetooth, a tow hitch, and power tilt and telescopic steering.
