The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A cramped rear seat and sluggish performance tarnish the otherwise rugged-lux credentials of the 2009 Lexus GX 470. The 2008 Land Rover LR3 is hard to justify for fashion alone, but if you're living an off-road lifestyle, it's one of the best.
