Say Hello to the New 2019 Lexus RX LMay 30th, 2019
Lexus took everyone by surprised at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show when it introduced a long-wheelbase version of its popular Lexus RX luxury sport utility vehicle. For 2019, the Lexus RX L is back with its three-row configuration, its impressive safety and connectivity features, and its highly refined cabin.
The Lexus RX L series is so much more than an RX with an extra row. “It’s been carefully engineered to capture all the beauty and engagement of the RX, while offering luxurious accommodation for up to seven adults,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “With a choice of conventional or self-charging hybrid powertrains and a range of trim packages, the RX L preserves all the qualities that have made the RX our best-selling model, then adds more space for family, friends, and cargo.”
Three rows and room for 7 passengers in the 2019 Lexus RX L
The real difference between the Lexus RX and the RX L is the addition of a third row of seats. You get seats for 7 passengers in most versions although you can opt for two captain’s seats in the second row for more comfort for passengers seated directly behind the driver.
The RX L is offered with a 290 horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine. You can also get an impressive hybrid powerplant in the RX 450 L which delivers 308 horsepower with an average fuel economy rating of less than 9.0 liters per 100 kilometers.
The RX 450 L is one of the very few luxury hybrid three-row SUVs on the market. As a whole, the RX L is a rare three-row option in its segment. It’s perfect for families looking for a luxurious SUV that’s large enough for all their transport needs, but compact enough to be easy to drive in the city.
