Lexus, which as you all know is the luxury arm of Toyota, has just unveiled a roomier version of its popular RX  crossover. The new RX L models now come equipped with the power of three...rows, with the option of six- or seven-seater configurations.

The new RX L comes in two variants: The 350L is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that generates 290hp and 357Nm paired to an eight-speed transmission. All-wheel drives is optional. The 450h L likewise comes with a 3.5-liter V6, but this one is paired to Lexus's Hybrid Drive. It generates a system total of 308hp and AWD comes standard.

To make way for the additional row, Lexus has lengthened the RX by 110mm. The standard seven-seater trim uses a bench-type second-row seat, but you can opt for captain's chairs instead to make it a six-seater. Leather upholstery comes standard for the first two rows with the choice of Black, Stratus Gray, Parchment, or Noble Brown. Safety features onboard include lane keep assist, intelligent high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control.

The new RX350L is set to hit US dealerships later this year for $47,670 (P2.4 million) for the front-wheel drive and $49,070 (P2.47 million) with all-wheel drive.

Are you looking forward to an RX with more seats?
