Expert Quotes:

12 mpg city, 18 highway
U.S. EPA





It's a little hard to believe that such an overt gas guzzler is produced by the same company that makes vehicles like the Toyota Prius and the Lexus CT 200h, but the automaker is, arguably, covering all aspects of the market.

The LX 570 brings a soft luxury sheen to serious truck-based underpinnings, but its fuel economy is among the lowest of any vehicle in its class, or any vehicle on the market, at 12 mpg city, 18 highway. That puts it near the top of the EPA's Carbon Footprint scale, and—based on our assumption that the majority of energy used during a vehicle's service life will be used through the tailpipe—makes it one of the least green choices you could make.

Conclusion

If you want to spite the environmentally-conscious, this is the way; the LX 570 is a guzzler.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
