2010 Lexus LX 570 Safety

8.0
On Safety

Safety is no place to scrimp, and Lexus doesn't with the LX 570, equipping stability control, ABS with all-terrain mode, front and second-row side airbags, side impact airbags for the second and third rows, and front knee airbags all as standard.

Even aside from all of that safety gear, however, there's still the LX 570's mammoth size. As Popular Mechanics quips, if the LX 570 "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." While that might not be the reality of the situation, it's certainly a common perception.

A wide range of safety features and the comfort of sheer bulk make the LX 570 a safe bet even without official ratings.

Though the styling doesn't merit much comment in aesthetic terms, it does get in the way a bit, says ConsumerGuide, which notes that the Lexus LX 570's "high stance" and "rear-roof styling" impede visibility, though they note that the large mirrors, front and rear obstacle sensors, and rearview camera offset the loss. As with any large, tall SUV, rearward and side visibility can be difficult.

Carried forward from last year's first application of the feature, the LX 570 has head restraints in addition to its flotilla of airbags, reports Cars.com, helping boost occupant safety even further.
