Since the 2010 Lexus GX 460 is an all-new vehicle with a new structure, there aren't yet any crash-test ratings available. But there sure are plenty of safety features. In addition to the usual stability control and anti-lock brakes, Lexus claims that the GX 460 has a best-in-class ten airbags, including front side, rear seat side, and three-row side-curtain bags, plus knee bags for both front occupants. Active front head restraints also enhance rear impact safety. Unfortunately, with the beltline brought even higher than before and a thicker back pillar, the blind spots have grown, leaving you to double- and triple-check when changing lanes. A back-up camera is now standard, but a wide-view front and side monitor system that helps a lot more is optional and requires the navigation system. Also available is a Pre-Collision System, which primes the braking system for emergency braking and employs a driver monitor system; the feature is packaged together with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Departure Alert, which detects lane markings and sounds a buzzer to warn the driver. Safety Connect—a GPS-based roadside assistance system—is included with all GX models.
Car and Driver: "There are 10 airbags plus driver aids such as lane-departure warning, a driver-attention monitor, adaptive cruise control, intelligent high-beams, active front lighting, precollision braking, and multifunction cameras."
Motor Trend: "Intelligent high beams come with the premium model, and other available safety options include dynamic radar cruise control and lane departure alert."
MotherProof: "When I’m slowed down as I approached a stop sign, for example, the front and side monitor cameras showed me if any small pedestrians might be crossing in front of me or if a bicyclist was pulling up beside me. Brilliant!"
