The 2009 Lexus LX 570 offers one of the longest lists of standard safety features in any vehicle, yet crash-test results aren’t available.
"A comprehensive array of standard safety features, including stability control, antilock brakes with brake assist, front-seat side airbags and roll-sensing full-length side curtain airbags," reports Edmunds, adding, "Lexus' pre-collision system is optional." Perhaps its best protection is its size; Popular Mechanics quips that if one "ever did hit anything with it at high speed, it would probably bounce off, since it's such a big, strong tank of an SUV."
ConsumerGuide says that the Lexus LX 570's "high stance and rear-roof styling hamper visibility, but that's offset by large door mirrors, standard front and rear obstacle detection, and rearview camera." As with many of the higher SUVs, rearward and sideway visibility can be an issue.
Cars.com reports that the 2009 Lexus "boasts 10 airbags. In addition to the usual front and front-seat side-impact bags are second-row side-impact airbags and a knee airbag for each front occupant" along with head restraints—which are installed on the 2009 Lexus LX 570 for the first time.
