Lexus has introduced a new three-row version of its RX line dubbed the RX L that adds six and seven seat configuration options. The expanded car was announced at the LA Auto Show. The new third row will offer standard power fold seats.
To make room the third row, Lexus extended the body of the RX by 4.3 inches and used a steeper tailgate window angle. The standard RX L will come with the seven-seat option while the available six-seat configuration will offer second row captain’s chairs that make it easier to access the third row. The third-row seat is completely foldable.
The RX L will be offered in two models: the RX 350L and RX 450hL. Powering the RX 350L will be a 3.5-liter V6 engine with D-4S fuel injection system that is capable of 290 horsepower and 263-foot pound of torque. The RX450hL is a hybrid variant with an all-wheel drive system. It uses a 3.50liter V6 engine with two high torque electric motor generators for a combined 308 horsepower.
Aside from the extra row and power train, the RX L carries over all of the characteristics of the RX line. That includes the luxurious interior with form-fitting leather seats, an 8-inch center console display with Remote Touch and a panoramic sunroof.
Here are some of the other inclusions the RX L comes with:
- 10-way power front leather seats with power lumbar adjustment
- Power-folding autodimming mirrors with memory
- Acoustic glass windshield
- Tri-Zone automatic climate control with interior air filter
- Smart Access with push-button Start/Stop
- 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels with 20-inch options
Lexus didn’t announce a date when the RX L would arrive in dealers, but did reveal that the RX 350L will start at $47,670 for the front-wheel drive version and $49,070 for the all-wheel version.
