Lexus slashes $8500 from LX570

Nose job: The Lexus LX570 has received the brand's new family grille design as part of a facelift, now on-sale.

More features, revised styling and cheaper price for facelifted Lexus LX570 SUV

10 Apr 2012

LEXUS Australia has cut $8500 from the starting price of its LX570 large SUV range as part of a facelift that adds more standard features and new-look frontal styling.

The revised line-up is now offered in a single $140,900 variant, which supersedes the previous entry-level Prestige version that retailed for $149,414.

A new ‘enhancement’ package is now available for $16,000, taking the price to $156,900 – $8414 less than the previous flagship Sports Luxury variant ($165,314).

The Toyota LandCruiser-based luxury off-roader receives the signature ‘spindle’ grille design that Lexus first introduced to the GS sedan launched Down Under last week.

Also new to the LX is an off-road turn-assist system, which tightens the turning circle by adding extra brake force to the inside rear wheel, as well as an upgraded Multi-Terrain Select function that adjusts the traction control according to the terrain.

The system has five terrain modes – rock, rock and dirt, mud and sand, mogul and loose rock – with associated information relayed via a new multimedia display situated on the instrument panel.

A new Multi-Terrain Monitor – which films blind spots on four external wide-angle cameras and projects them onto the in-dash LCD display – has also been added.

Further cosmetic changes include LED daytime-running lights and a redesigned front bumper with larger fog-light surrounds. Lexus has also tweaked the rear bumper and tail-lights, and a more “discreet” tow-hitch cover.

Inside, the LX gets a revised and less cluttered instrument fascia, a larger LCD screen, improved optional front seat ventilation, a 220-volt outlet in the cargo area and one-touch indicators.

Lexus has also added a new Easy Access seat system, which eases entry and egress by retracting the front seats and steering wheel when the ignition is switched off, and there is a new dual-screen entertainment system in the rear.

Other standard equipment includes adaptive variable suspension, 20-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera, keyless start, quad-zone air-conditioning, 10 airbags, 19-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth phone and audio.

The enhancement pack adds the Lexus Pre-Collision safety system, active cruise control, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, paddle-shifters on the steering wheel and faux mahogany interior trim.

As before, the MY12 LX is powered exclusively by a 5.7-litre V8 petrol engine with 270kW and 530Nm matched to a six-speed sequential automatic transmission.

Lexus is set to introduce a facelifted version of its other SUV offering – the smaller, BMW X5-rivalling RX – in Australia by mid-year, with the same spindle grille, a range of equipment upgrades and, for the first time, F Sport versions.
