Getting in and out of such a big vehicle can be a challenge for smaller adults and children, but Lexus has an available active height control system that lowers the vehicle about 2 inches to ease ingress and egress. It also pays attention to the speed, raising the vehicle at low speeds to aid ground clearance and lowering it again at high speeds to help reduce aerodynamic drag. A Crawl Control setting in the off-road electronics equipment aids in negotiating tricky passages.

Inside, the 2010 LX 570 has three rows of seating. While it shares a basic layout with the Toyota Land Cruiser, the LX 570 is more opulent and ornate. Wood trim, matte-metallic surfaces, leather, and high-grade plastics abound. There are a few shortcomings, however: While the front seats are spacious and comfortable, the third-row seating is too small for full-size adults and it doesn't stow flat in the floor.

Kelley Blue Book calls the LX 570's interior "comfortable" and finds "best-in-class second- and third- row legroom," plus ample headroom in all three rows. ConsumerGuide finds that while the second and third rows are well-padded, they aren't long enough in the thigh. Edmunds also considers the back row tight, saying "the third row still has a knees-up seating position that's suitable only for kids."

Storage and cargo room are good, though Edmunds does complain that the third row "isn't totally removable," a fact that puts the LX 570 behind other premium large SUVs in total space. ConsumerGuide likes the in-cabin storage, especially the "bi-level dashboard glove box," and "large map pockets on doors and seatbacks."

Quietude is abundant, says ConsumerGuide, living up to "Lexus's library-quiet reputation." Nevertheless, there is some coarse-surface tire thrum, and the big V-8 can make itself heard, though wind noise is low.

MotherProof isn't completely sold on the LX 570, arguing that while it's a "very well-appointed truck...it's a truck nonetheless." ConsumerGuide finds the materials quality "high" and the detailing of the interior's build "thorough."

Conclusion

Despite its size, the 2010 Lexus LX 570 isn't the most space-efficient, but does rank high in comfort.

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.
