makes me feel like I have a big butt
MotherProof

The styling of the 2009 Lexus GX 470 is unremarkable. Some would describe it as "conservative" or "anonymous," but neither applies in a positive sense.

Most comments regarding this 2009 Lexus are neutral and descriptive: Cars.com mentions its strong familial resemblance to other vehicles in the Lexus lineup and a "few more metallic finishes outside and inside differentiate this 2009 Lexus model from its former self." Road & Track states essentially the same thing: "On the outside, the [Lexus] GX 470's family resemblance is obvious. The signature grille leads the way for the tall body and narrow greenhouse look." In fact, very few sources have much to say about the appearance of the 2009 Lexus GX 470—good, bad, or indifferent.

The Lexus GX 470 is described simply as an updated version of the same SUV design that's been around for several years. MotherProof snipes that the Lexus GX 470 size and shape "makes me feel like I have a big butt" and would bump into everything in attempts to park. The SUV’s styling includes integrated fender flares and lighted running boards. Kelley Blue Book considers the flared fenders a "bold" touch that softens "contouring on its front and rear quarters."

ForbesAutos says, "the Lexus GX 470's comfortable and well-equipped cabin features leather upholstery [and] bird's eye maple wood trim." ConsumerGuide praises this 2009 Lexus's "well-appointed and high-quality cabin."

Conclusion

The styling of the 2009 Lexus GX 470 is uninspired.

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.
