2009 Lexus LX 570 Comfort & Quality

Comfort & Quality

A well-finished, well-built interior with three spacious rows of seating greets passengers of the 2009 Lexus LX 570.

Kelley Blue Book reports that the 2009 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." ConsumerGuide comments, "both rear seat rows are comfortably padded but need longer cushions, especially the 3rd row." The front seats are very generously apportioned and immensely comfortable. But there are some inadequacies of the interior design—namely, the third-row seat design isn't large enough for adults and doesn't fold flat into the floor.

While not the most space-efficient SUV, the 2009 Lexus LX 570 does rank high in comfort.

According to Edmunds, storage and cargo room aboard the 2009 LX 570 model is adequate; "since the third row isn't totally removable, the 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 glove box, twin-lid console bin, and large map pockets on doors and seatbacks."

The 2009 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,” reports ConsumerGuide.

ConsumerGuide also notes that the "Lexus interior...impresses for high-quality materials and thorough detailing." MotherProof points out, however, that while "the Lexus [2009] LX 570 is a very well-appointed truck...it's a truck nonetheless."
