2016 Lexus TX

Lexus TX is a new crossover, which is expected to come as 2016 year model. The current RX model is still in production and it is still very strong competitor in this class, mainly because of its luxurious cabin, but on the other side, it lacks in power and, which is probably more important, it doesn’t have a third row of seats, which some other models have. Because of that fact Toyota works on new model which should compensate those lacks.
