2018 Lexus Rx 350l, Rx450hl Are Here To Fill Your 7-seat Needs

2018 Lexus RX 350L, RX450hL are here to fill your 7-seat needs

The Lexus RX is the Japanese automaker's best-selling model, moving nearly twice as many units so far this year as the runner-up, the Lexus NX. Considering the state of the crossover-crazed market, that should be a surprise to absolutely no one. Still, customers demands more, and automakers are happy to deliver. Currently, Lexus has a three-row crossover-shaped hole in its lineup. Soon, that gap will be filled by the new seven-passenger 2018 RX 350L and RX 450hL.

Sure, you can get three rows in the GX and LX, but traditional SUVs like that aren't selling nearly as well as more fuel efficient and more affordable car-based crossovers. The RX 350L and RX 450hL are based on the standard and hybrid RX variants. The pair have been extended by 4.3 inches to help accommodate an extra pair of seats. The angle of the rear window has also been changed to make sure third-row occupants have a reasonable amount of headroom.

My Heroes / 3 Singers Fill Yomiuri Otemachi Hall With Tokusatsu Songs

MY HEROES / 3 singers fill Yomiuri Otemachi Hall with tokusatsu songs

By Mishio Suzuki / Yomiuri Shimbun Senior SpecialistI joined The Yomiuri Shimbun in 1989, the first year of the Heisei era. At that time, the company building stood where it does now, but it was nothing compared to the current building, which was completed three years ago. To be honest, the old building was a bit shabby.

I participated in the company's entrance ceremony at that building in April 1989, and soon began my career as a reporter at the newspaper's Yokohama bureau. In those first several years, I did everything in my power to hide from everyone in the office the fact that I was a complete geek for tokusatsu sci-fi superhero dramas and films.
