2011 Lexus LX 570 Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality
The LX 570 has a seating arrangement that's quite a bit different than those of most other luxury SUVs, and there are good and bad points to it. As is typical, the third row is hard to get to and it's quite cramped. The second row seats are considerably more adult-sized—although a little flat. While the second rows fold and flip fully forward to expand cargo space, the third-row seats flip up and rotate to the side—allowing, more easily, a flat, continuous load floor for longer cargo items. The disadvantage to the setup is that the third-row seats can't be completely removed.

In front, though, there's great comfort from the generously sized seats, which are finished in perforated leather and very soft, yet supportive. No matter which seat, though, a huge step up is required, which could be an issue for some. The available active height control system can help; it lowers the vehicle about 2 inches to ease ingress and egress, raises it for more ground clearance at low speeds, and lowers it at higher speeds.

The LX 570 cabin remains tight and quiet, with low levels of road and wind noise, though the bellowing engine isn't hushed up to Lexus levels of refinement and can be heard even when cruising in some situations. Ride quality is soft, but a mixed bag; there's a lot of body motion and secondary heaving after impacts in the LX 570, which can be more fatiguing than controlled choppiness on rough surfaces.

The 2011 Lexus LX 570 is very comfortable, though ride quality isn't always top-notch.
