richly appointed, with exceptional leather and wood trim
cabin decor lacks the richness of other premium rivals
still basically a Land Cruiser in fancy dress
The 2010 Lexus LX 570 is the third year of the new design first released in 2008. With exterior styling cues that'll let observers know it's a Lexus without hitting them over the head with its size, the LX 570's exterior design strikes an organic balance. Inside, excellent materials complement a luxurious yet functional layout, with controls well at hand.
Kelley Blue Book explains the 2010 LX 570's in terms of the Lexus L-finesse design language, which offers a "more muscular appearance than the LX 470," meaning a "wider stance and more subtle design lines." Cars.com says the 2010 LX 570 "resists attempts to make it truly distinctive," pinning the fault on "its body-on-frame construction," and add that something about the design of the tail lights "recalls Lincolns." Motor Trend argues the Lexus is essentially a "Land Cruiser in fancy dress."
Edmunds takes its own road, calling the LX 570's interior "richly appointed," and making special note of the leather quality and available wood trim upgrades. Cars.com finds the interior uninspiring, having "broken no new ground," and ConsumerGuide agrees, adding that the interior is "upscale Toyota" rather than "true elite class."
Luxurious and spacious, the 2010 Lexus LX 570 doesn't offer much excitement in terms of design.
