Leaked documents have revealed that Lexus is working on a long-wheelbase variant of the RX SUV for China. The new car will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and launch on the Chinese car market in early H2. It will be based on the 308hp RX450h hybrid and it will be called the RX450hL. Lexus does not manufacture any cars locally, even this China-only model will be made in Japan.
The wheelbase will be extended by about 15 centimeters, creating a seven-seat car to compete better with vehicles like the Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90. The L will likely be fully loaded and very expensive. The current range starts at 418.000 yuan and ends at 869.000 yuan for the 450h, so the 450hL will be at least 900.000 yuan.
The facelifted Lexus IS has been unveiled on the Beijing Auto Show, sporting a heavily creased from fascia with the largest and craziest grille we saw on the show. Even the local Chinese automakers won’t go this far! Other updates include the smaller front lights, completely new bumpers, and new taillights.
