A three-row variant of the Lexus RX crossover, caught testing in Southern California, appears to be close at hand.
The seven-seat RX "L" features a longer rear overhang and a more upright roof to better accommodate riders in the far back. But otherwise, it isn't much different from the two-row version. Lexus was able to accommodate the third row with few physical changes.
For the three-row model, there should be both a standard 350 and a hybrid 450h, mirroring the versions of the two-row crossover. Lexus could use the three-row model as an opportunity to tweak the RX's styling. Expect a full look at an auto show this year; it goes on sale soon after.
