What is the point of having a large car, like a crossover, if you cant occasionally take six more passengers with you to go for dinner or a short journey? That’s what many buyers today are asking too, and Lexus believes his model would fit a lot more customers if it had a third row.
The crossover segment in Lexus’ lineup is currently filled by the RX model. It’s based on the Toyota Highlander, but despite that being offered now with seven seats, the RX will have to wait a bit more until its outdated shapes will be refreshed and extra seats will be added. And that’s because the all-new NX compact crossover is launching later this year.
