2018 Lexus RX 350L Review: More Junk In Its Trunk
“If you build it, they will come,” is what the disembodied voice whispered to Ray Kinsella on the back of an Iowa breeze in the movie Field of Dreams. It’s also an adage that applies to crossovers in today’s market: if you build one, they will come... and buy it. That’s the simple explanation for why there now exists a longer version of the popular Lexus RX crossover, the RX 350L. Adding two more seats make its that much more appealing, right?
With an extra 4.3 inches of length appended to the rear end (the wheelbase remains the same), the RX350L can now ostensibly handle up to seven passengers. However, despite what the spec sheet says, the third row is barely inhabitable by any size human, child or adult. In other words, if you’re looking for a three-row luxury crossover that actually seats seven, you should keep looking.
