Car reviews - Lexus - LX - LX570 5-dr wagon


Lexus lands its biggest, most capable SUV ever, but don't call the LX570 a LandCruiser

3 Apr 2008

LIKE the new LandCruiser 200 Series on which it is based, the new Lexus SUV flagship heads upstream in terms of size, technology, refinement, safety, performance – and price. At around $137,000 for the entry-level prestige and $152,000 for the top-shelf Sports Luxury, the two-tier LX570 range comes standard with 10 airbags, an even better appointed interior, a more capable off-road suspension and four-wheel drive system, and more sheer grunt from a new 5.7-litre petrol V8, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Is a little more fuel efficient than before, and vastly quicker, but the big new LX570 is far from green.

Previous model

Lexus LX470

Released: May 1998
Ended: April 2008
Family Tree: LX

The first LX Lexus sold in Australia was the previous-generation LX470, which arrived here in May 1998 powered by a 170kW/410Nm 4.7-litre V8, mated exclusively to a four-speed auto. Originally priced at $115,000, which Lexus says was in line with the ($155,850) LS400 sedan flagship of the day, the LX470 gained traction control in January 2000, a five-speed auto as part of a mild facelift in October 2002, and a rera-view camera in October 2003.
