What are customers saying about the RX series in the UAE
Tariq - Bought a second hand RX 330 a few months ago as a secondary car, soon enough though it became my first car. It’s reliable, has good options and lots of space inside. Stick to the road though as it’s not good on any other surface. Pros: Spacious and lots of features. Cons: Doesn’t do well off road.
Rasheed - I got a pre owned RX 350 for a good price as a gift for my wife, but from the first day, I drove it home I wanted to keep it for myself. The V6 motor has some power, and there are so many fantastic interior features and safety options. Pros: Engine and options for UAE climate. Cons: Handling takes some time to get used to.
Mansoor - The RX series has some of the best stylings of any crossover in the market, especially the 2016 model. My RX 350 is a good car, and I would recommend anyone to buy it based on the style alone, it also has awesome features and good power. Pros: Looks, overall build quality and power. Cons: Handling can be a bit of an issue at first.
