First Impressions of the 2018 Lexus RX L

The 2018 Lexus RX 350L has arrived at North Park Lexus at Dominion and we are loving what we see!  Not only are there more seats and versatility, but the RX L also features something new for the RX model that we have been wanting Lexus to add for some time now.  What feature has us the most excited about the new Lexus RX L?  Every new RX L will come standard with second-row armrest storage complete with two USB ports.  Finally, the back seat passengers will be able to charge and enjoy their devices without having to stretch a cord to the front center console.  This new, convenient feature plus the three-zone climate control, power fold-flat third-row seating and impressive cargo space have us loving this new Lexus RX.

With room up to seven passengers, the new RX 350L offers an even wider appeal to drivers everywhere.  Whether it’s taking a couple extra kids to practice, driving your coworkers to lunch, or making room for your latest shopping excursion, the three-row RX has you covered.

Power-Folding Seats

Both the RX 350L (available now) and the RX 450hL (March production) feature power-folding third-row seats with 50/50 split that is not only versatile but extremely easy to use.  There are a few different ways you can get the third-row seats up or down with easy access from both the back seat (either side) and rear cargo area.

Cargo Space

The new RX L offers ample cargo space.  Even with the third-row seat up, the RX 350L has more cargo depth than a larger SUV.  The cargo space is impressive, to say the least, and allows for more than enough space for weekend purchases – the possibilities are endless and it’s quite frankly giving us shopping fever.

Now that we have the new RX 350L here at our dealership, we can confirm that the extended length version of the RX does not sacrifice style for the extra space.  You can barely notice the longer length since the RX L thankfully, offers the same signature floating roofline that you see on the normal-length version.  The RX L offers the same bold design and style as the RX now with wraparound LED taillamps and bold front-end.

Interior Design and Features

The RX L is filled with an abundance of distinctive extras including all the same features that come with every other RX 350, and more.  The little extras really set the new RX 350L apart from the regular RX model.  Every RX 350L will feature two USB ports in the back seat center armrest console and dedicated climate control for passengers in the third-row.  This is extremely important for South Texas and we are thrilled that it is a standard feature on the new model.
