a very well-appointed truck, but...a truck nonetheless
Mother Proof

The 2008 Lexus LX 570 has three spacious rows of seating and a well-built, well-finished interior.

The front seats are very generously apportioned and immensely comfortable. But there are some inadequacies of the interior design--namely, that the third-row seat design isn't large enough for adults and doesn't fold flat into the floor. Kelley Blue Book reports that the 2008 Lexus's "interior is comfortable and has enough room for eight passengers and a lot of luggage and gear" with "best-in-class second- and third- row legroom" and "30 inches of headroom in all three rows," so "tall passengers can be transported without a complaint." Edmunds, however, notes "the third row still has a knees-up seating position that's suitable only for kids." Consumer Guide reports "both rear seat rows are comfortably padded but need longer cushions, especially the 3rd row."

Storage and cargo room aboard this Lexus 2008 model is adequate; according to Edmunds, "since the third row isn't totally removable, the [2008 Lexus] LX 570's maximum cargo capacity is 83 cubic feet, average for a midsize SUV but notably below the capacity of many other large SUVs." ConsumerGuide, however, praises "ample interior storage [that] includes bi-level dashboard glovebox, twin-lid console bin, and large map pockets on doors and seatbacks."

ConsumerGuide also notes that the "Lexus [2008] interior...impresses for high-quality materials and thorough detailing." Mother Proof points out, however, that while "the Lexus [2008] LX 570 is a very well-appointed truck...it's a truck nonetheless."

ConsumerGuide says that the 2008 Lexus "maintains Lexus's library-quiet reputation. Highway wind rush is impressively low, but coarse-surface tire thrum is noticeable. So, too, is the V8's classy-sounding growl at full throttle."

Conclusion

Comfort and quality are high in the 2008 Lexus LX 570, but it’s not the most space-efficient SUV.

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.
