Cape Town - Lexus South Africa announced that its RX SUV will offer three-rows of seating in the form of its new RX 350L version.

The RX 350L is powered by the V6 engine, delivering a maximum 216kW and 358Nm

Lexus says packaging requirements for the third-row seat required a single exhaust rather than the dual system fitted to RX 350, resulting in small reductions in power and torque (5kW, 12Nm).

The new model features an eight-speed sequential shift intelligent automatic transmission. 

Details that enhance versatility include a flat load floor behind the third-row, an easily stowable tonneau, covered slide rails and the hands-free power tailgate.

With the third row folded flat into the floor, the cargo space expands to 432 litres (with the tonneau cover). Larger items can be carried by folding the second and third rows, offering 966 litres (to front-seat top).

A three-zone climate control system (driver side, passenger side and rear) gives third-row passengers separate controls and dedicated vents. Curtain-shield airbags have been extended to protect third-row passengers.

Second-row seat passengers have access to two 5V USB power sockets in the centre armrest.
