Lexus RX

Segment: Premium CUV

Drivetrain option(s): FWD/AWD

Powertrain(s): NA


Addition 2018

New for 2018 is the RX L. The body of the RX L is stretched 4.3 inches at the rear and uses a steeper tailgate window compared with the standard two-row RX to provide better headroom in the back without dramatically altering the styling. The longer RX features seating for seven passengers with standard bench-type seats, but a six-seat upgrade with second-row captain's chairs is available that improves access to the third row, Lexus says.

Freshen 2019

The RX looks like a good candidate for full "F" treatment, which would send a powerful message to sporty segment rivals such as the BMW X5 and Audi Q5.

Redesign 2021

Looking at a typical six-year cycle, the next generation could show up in 2021 unless it jumps to GA-L sooner.
