If the Toyota LandCruiser isn’t luxurious enough, it’s possible to buy a version that’s just as capable but with a significantly higher level of opulence.
Lexus builds the LX 570 to satisfy well-heeled family buyers – specifically, those who want the ability of a LandCruiser with luxury finishes more worthy of a Range Rover.
The LX looks like nothing else on the road. In this segment, where exclusivity is a real advantage, the imposing Lexus makes sense.
Commanding a slim $25,000 over the mass-market Toyota, the Lexus falls $100,000 short of a comparably-specified Range Rover. While short of calling it a bargain, the Lexus might just be the sweet spot in this full-size niche.
The 2016 Lexus LX 570 remains an enormous vehicle following the a recent refresh that added that huge grille. With three tonnes to haul around, running costs from the sole engine – a petrol V8 – are substantial but the low cost of entry, and generous equipment level, make the LX 570 an attractive buy.
