Kelly Blue Book (KBB) has named the 2016 Lexus RX 350 to its 5-Year Cost To Own rankings claiming the first spot. The car’s gone some very major improvements and upgrades, but to also be chosen as the best 5-year cost to own at $51,116, it’s time car enthusiasts take a good look at this midsize luxury crossover before making the next purchase.
Before you start comparing the Lexus to other cars among the likes, bear in mind that the Acura MDX came in as the runner-up too, with a cost of $54,892. The KBB didn’t choose these cars at random, but rather, puts some of these into consideration before ultimately selecting one as the best car to own: depreciation, insurance cost, fuel cost, and maintenance.
It’s no surprise there that the Lexus RX 350 has gotten to where it’s at because it hasn’t been building on a reputation for nothing. Overtime, it’s a car that’s made of a winning combination of luxury, reliability and quality and all these have proven to be unbeatable in this segment. Thus, it’s absolutely natural for KBB to have the car outshine the rest in its department.
Has all these persuaded you into getting yourself one of the Lexus RX 350s?
