Lexus prepares modern 7-seat crossover to augment popular RX 350
Lexus will soon morph the current RX 350 crossover into a 7 passenger vehicle to the delight of Lexus dealers in the US. Dealers have been frustrated that Lexus has no crossover that can carry seven, and they know they are missing out on lots of business as a result. The forums we participate in have frequent comments from dealers on the subject.
When we began reporting last year on what has become the new Lexus NX 200t and NX 300h, one of the first things we mentioned was that this new 5 passenger crossover will make it possible for the RX 350 to grow to become a 5 plus 2, seven passenger crossover. It could even be stretched to hold eight, but we seriously doubt that due to styling issues.
