There are some changes that are definitely happening for the upcoming 2018 Lexus RX. This premium SUV has always been known for the luxurious and elegant design but a third sitting row will be made to accommodate seven people inside the interior cabin. If you want a powerful ride that can also accommodate cargo, this is the brand to go to.
Viewing the company’s plan, the company’s decision to expand the five people vehicle to seven people ride takes a careful planning – and expand their competition list with other tough names like Volvo XC90, Infiniti QX60, and Acura RDX. But it seems that they are pretty sure about their decision so there shouldn’t be any problem with it.
For the 2018 Lexus RX model, the company is going to sell the seven seater SUV together with the previous five people model. Besides expanding the capacity to accommodate people, it looks like that the new RX model will be coming with gas and also hybrid model with the styles remain the same as the five seater model.
People will have to compromise with some of the changes. As the five seater SUV, this RX model has a generous space for people and also cargo. And it is about to change with the new plan. Naturally, you will have to get used to the compromised layout as the space won’t be as roomy and wide as before. But still, if you value the addition of the third row and the fact that it can accommodate more people, you will see that the new 2018 Lexus RX has a lot of promising features to offer.
The overall construction and design won’t be drastically changing until the 2019 model, when the refreshing plan will take place. The new ride may be coming with a new color and a small tweak. If you take a look at the overall design and style, you will see that the RX is just as stylish as before with the sharp handle and good looking platform.
The current powertrain is considered powerful enough so the new RX will likely be coming with the same V6 engine with 3.5 liter capacity delivering 295 hp of power. When it is paired with the auto eight speed transmission, it feels smooth with powerful punch of the acceleration. For the hybrid line, the engine will be paired up with the electric motor so the new 2018 Lexus RX hybrid will deliver 308 hp of power.
