2011 Lexus LX 570 Safety

8.0
Safety
There aren't any U.S. safety ratings to go on regarding either the 2011 Lexus LX 570, or the 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser. Neither has been crash-tested, but the LX 570's stout structure and good list of safety features are reassuring.

Lexus doesn't skip any key safety features with the LX 570, equipping stability control, ABS with all-terrain mode, front and second-row side airbags, side impact airbags for the second and third rows, active head restraints, and front knee airbags all as standard.

The one serious issue with the LX 570's safety remains outward visibility; because of its high stance and rear roofline, you might get a good view out ahead but spotting vehicles just to the side or behind, for parking or lane changes, can be challenging. Large mirrors, front and rear obstacle sensors, and a rearview camera help offset the loss.

Even without official ratings, the wide range of safety features and the comfort of sheer bulk make the LX 570 a pretty safe pick.
