Lexus RX L 2018 pricing and spec confirmed

RX350L variants are motivated by a 3.5-litre atmo V6 petrol engine that produces 216kW of power and 358Nm of torque.

Lexus Australia introduced the RX L seven-seater into local showrooms this week, with the four-variant range attracting premiums up to $3280 over its five-seat counterpart.

In 'Luxury' form, the RX350L and RX450hL open the line-up from $84,700 and $93,440 before on-road costs respectively, while opting for the 'Sports Luxury' grade increases either price by $16,800.

RX350L variants are motivated by a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine that produces 216kW of power at 6300rpm and 358Nm of torque from 4600 to 4700rpm.

These outputs are down 5kW/12Nm over the five-seat RX350 due to packaging requirements for the third row that led to a single-exhaust system being fitted instead of a dual set-up.

Comparatively, the RX450hL has a similarly sized bent six that develops 193kW at 6000rpm and 335Nm at 4600rpm with a 123kW/335Nm electric motor for a combined power output of 230kW. These figures match those of the five-seat RX450h.

Both powertrains send drive to all four wheels, while the RX350L uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and the RX450hL employs a continuously-variable transmission (CVT) with six simulated ratios.

Thanks to the RX L's extra size, fuel consumption on the combined cycle test has taken a hit, with the RX350L claiming 10.2 litres per 100 kilometres, while the RX450hL musters 6.0L/100km. These figures are up 0.6L/100km and 0.3L/100km over the equivalent five-seaters.

Similarly, carbon dioxide emissions have increased to 224 grams per km for the RX350L and 137g/km for the RX450hL, up 1g/km and 6g/km respectively.

Standard equipment for the Luxury grade extends to rain-sensing windshield wipers, adaptive LED headlights, LED fog lights, LED daytime running lights (DRLs), power-adjustable heated side mirrors with memory function, a hands-free power tailgate, 20-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, privacy glass and three driving modes.
