2017 Lexus ES 350 vs 2017 Acura RLX near Falls Church, VA

You can likely list a dozen midsize sedan options on the market today, if not more, and we at Pohanka Lexus of Chantilly know how hard it can be to make that final decision. We’re here to help with our comparison between the 2017 Lexus ES 350 and the 2017 Acura RLX. Both are competitive vehicles and both have a number of benefits, but which one will ultimately come out on top? Don’t hesitate to contact a knowledgeable member of our staff if you have any questions – we’re available via text message, Live Chat function, and over the phone at 703-592-4979.

One of the primary reasons to lean towards a sedan versus a crossover SUV is efficiency. The ES 350 boasts a 3.5-liter V6 engine that achieves a commendable 21/30/24 MPG city/hwy/combined1. While the RLX gives the ES 350 a run for its money, it still settles in at second place with its own V6 engine that clocks in at 20/30/23 MPG city/hwy/combined2, falling just short of the ES 350’s capability. The ES 350 is also topped off with a Drive Mode Select feature, which allows you to manipulate the engine and throttle response based upon your mood, an aspect the RLX designers overlooked when crafting their sedan.

Both sedans offer a host of interior features for media and connectivity, including touchscreens, infotainment systems, and more. You will find HD Radio3 with iTunes®4 tagging on the ES 350, a feature not available on the RLX. For the audiophiles out there, you’ll appreciate the available Clari-FiTM Technology, which helps restore the quality of compressed music files, offering a concert-quality experience that the RLX just can’t rival since it doesn’t boast a comparable system.

The Interior of the 2017 ES 350

The other crucial area where these two cabins differ has to do with space. The ES 350 boasts a whopping 15.2 cubic ft. of room5 in its trunk for you to load up with everything you need for a day at Larry Graves Park. The RLX, on the other hand, falls short with as little as 14.7 cubic ft. of space6. The ES 350 also gives you a choice between two different moonroofs, a standard and panoramic, so you can choose the one that best suits your fancy – the panoramic one even increases headroom, which makes it a desirable addition for taller passengers! The RLX doesn’t offer anything but a standard moonroof, not bothering to give you a choice.

Finally, the last area we’ll grapple with is safety. The ES 350 boasts a Blind Spot Monitor7 with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert8 for peace of mind while changing lanes and reversing out of parking spaces. The RLX has a blind spot information system9, but lacks a cross-traffic reversing system, leaving more to change when maneuvering out of tight parking spaces.

While comparing two competitive midsize sedans like this might have other vehicle dealers quaking in their boots, we at Pohanka Lexus of Chantilly have faith in the vehicles we sell. This comparison between the 2017 Lexus ES 350 vs the 2017 Acura RLX near Falls Church, VA, has been close, we feel comfortable saying that the ES 350 stands out as the winner! Visit us today at 13909 Lee Jackson Memorial Highway in Chantilly, VA, to see for yourself!

Customer service at this dealership is amazing! Nader was extremely helpful in my search for the perfect car. He wasn’t pushy and seemed like he had my best interest at heart. Sai, the manager, was awesome. He was very kind and worked with me to help me get the car I wanted in my budget. The waiting area is comfy. The massage chairs, big screen and snacks make you want to wait. Haha! Overall, I’m happy I bought my car from them. :)

I recently had occasion to visit the Pohanka Lexus in Chantilly with the hope of doing a test drive toward purchasing a vehicle. My experience was very positive and I especially would like to compliment one of their sales consultants, Mimi Hoffman. What an asset she is to this dealership...she was professional, knowledgeable about the product, able to answer all of my questions, and was excellent at interacting with a potential new customer. Kudos to Pohanka for having this excellent representative on their staff.

Over the past 5 years I have brought my wife's RX450h to Pohanka Lexus for service. Reza and Fred have been our primary advisors and they really work with us and ensure that everything is good to go. When I wait in the lounge it is really nice, with snacks, TVs, and really nice massaging chairs. This isn't Toyota and there is a premium for having a Lexus but the waiting area is nice, the loaners are great at near zip to borrow them, and I have found two service advisors that my wife and I can trust.

"Great experience!"

I want to personally thank Nicole and her team for going above and beyond every single time I step into this dealership. I came in with a small problem/annoyance, and although a technician wasn’t able to diagnose it, Mike (lead service tech) physically sat in the car with my to understand my problem a little bit more and came to a resolution. Nicole made sure it was covered under my L/Certified Warranty, and the part was ordered. Nicole also came in on her day off to check in on everything. Nicole and her team, along with Mike have been exceptional in every single aspect of my visit and took care of my concern in a timely manner! Thank you again Pohanka Lexus for another phenomenal visit!!

I want to start out by saying that I have only brought my Lexus vehicles to Pohanka for reason only, and that's because of Nicole Perry. I have been working with Nicole for over a year now with any problem/ concern I have had with my Lexus vehicles. Nicole was always so humble, kind, and went above and beyond every single time no matter how big or small the issue was. She has never failed to put a smile on her face either :). Nicole and her team have always been so communicative, friendly, and generous! The service facility is always immaculately clean, always stocked with great snacks, and delicous coffee. Oh and lets not forget the newly opened second floor with massage chairs and MORE snacks and waters! Although Pohanka is 35 minutes out of my way, I am willing to make the drive for even the smallest problem just because of Nicole and her amazing team! I want to thank Pohanka Lexus for such an amazing visit every single time I visit this dealership! Thanks again to Nicole!

A last minute decision to install x-bars atop my car meant finding a dealer: 1. Enter Nicole, a very cheerful and most efficient professional, who got me in with a last minute appointment (thank goodness Pohanka's Service Department is open to 11pm) with parts waiting and two technicians standing by to install the x-bars. 2. I leave for a very long road trip in two days and need extra storage outside the car. 3. Nicole directed me to the upstairs lounge and the massage chair while she took care to get my car to the techs. 4. Before I knew it, I got a text from Nicole that my car was ready! 5. She had me out in half the time and at a lesser cost than quoted!! 6. Everyone was very professional and courteous, the common areas sparkling clean, including the ladies room, Starbucks coffee in the first floor lounge with a variety of refreshments, including fresh fruit and ice cream. 7. BOTTOM LINE: Were I staying in the area, Pohanka would be MY CHOICE for service to my 10 year old RX350 with 125,000 miles. Thank you, Nicole, for making my first visit a must memorable experience!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I came here the other night to buy a used Rav4, I assumed they’d sell it to me and get me out the door. Not only were they friendly and helpful but I felt like I was treated as if I was there to buy an actual Lexus. I worked with Shah, who was very knowledgeable and showed me how to work everything. He even set my phone up with my new car. He also called the next day to thank me and make sure I was happy. The car is amazing and my mechanic said it’s a great buy. I highly recommend this dealership. No pressure and friendly staff. It was a great experience.

Very disappointed with the service department. It takes me three visits and spend more than $1700 to fix my 2012 RX 350 rear door failed to open issue. The technicians seem to me don't be able to diagnose the real problem. There is no explanation why the second time fix nothing and cost me more than $900. Last week, the service dept. called me to send my car in and re-diagnose the back door issue. Eventually my car has been fixed. Andrew was very friendly and helpful in the whole process.
