    A larger, seven-seat version of the Lexus RX has been unveiled at the LA Auto Show. Lexus calls it the RX L and it will be available in six and seven-seater options with the addition of a new reclining bench in the boot.

    To make space for the extra passengers, the model designed for the US market is 110 mm longer than the regular RX. Length aside, the RX L can also be distinguished from the standard RX by its tailgate that sits at a steeper angle to meet the roof.

    The third row passengers have access to the car’s three-zone climate control and get two cup-holders. The third row seats can also be folded down flat into the boot to expand the boot space.

    In international markets, the RX L will be offered with two powertrain options. The first is a 3.5-Litre V6 engine producing 294hp and 352Nm of torque. The second, with similar specifications, will be coupled with two electric motors, delivering a combined power output of 308hp.

    Lexus LX 570 two-row

    Alongside the RX L, Lexus has had on display a new version of its larger LX 570 two-row SUV. The US model – meant to battle the likes of Toyota Land Cruiser – has ditched the third-row seat of the regular variant to become a five-seater.

    Lexus says it has removed the passenger space, on purpose. The company intends to expand the storage capacity of the car’s boot – as per customer requests.

    Lexus has not given any confirmation about the Indian debut of these cars, yet.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
