Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Enclave as you will with the Lexus RX 350, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Buick Enclave or the Lexus RX 350, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Enclave is much higher than that for the Lexus RX 350.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus RX 350 is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Buick Enclave has a little more horsepower than the Lexus RX 350.

Utility
The Buick Enclave offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus RX 350, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Enclave is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus RX 350.
