The Lexus RX L is a seven-seat version of the brand's RX luxury SUV. Launched in 2018, two years after the five-seat version, it's Lexus' riposte to luxury seven-seaters such as the Audi Q7 and Range Rover Sport, although it's only available as a hybrid. Does it compare with its talented rivals as both a luxury car and a family SUV? We took to the wheel ahead of getting the model into our lab to find out. Read on for our Lexus RX L first drive review.
