MEDIUM-SIZE LEXUS IS NOW LONGER
The designers at Lexus extended the RX 350 by 110 mm, the roof is 10 mm higher, and the hatchback is more upright. The longer RX 350 also gets the suffix “L” to its name. The reason for the modification is because Lexus’s clients asked for a third row of seats. The RX 350L’s back seats have space for two passengers and a child seat. The curtain airbags have been made longer to protect the rear passengers and there are anchor points for the child seat. The seats lift and lower electrically and the rear passengers have their own air con buttons. The frontand middle-row seats are still heated, but not the ones at the back. The rear seats have synthetic upholstery instead of leather like the rest – apparently because it’s more durable. The RX 350L is powered by the same V6 engine as the standard RX 350, but it delivers 5 kW and 12 Nm less torque (216 kW and 358 Nm) than the standard model because the new design requires a single exhaust pipe rather than a double exhaust system.
