Loaded with convenience and luxury features like every other Lexus, LX 570 sport-utility vehicles gain more connectivity for the 2013 model year, though they're missing one major update applied across the rest of the lineup.
The Remote Touch mouse-like controller that runs infotainment in nearly every other Lexus doesn't make the cut in the 2013 LX 570, but mobile apps do. Now, through Lexus' Enform connectivity suite, mobile phones and apps like Pandora and Stitcher can be operated through the LX 570's LCD touchscreen, or by voice commands.
Those dual functions are enabled by standard navigation and Bluetooth with audio streaming. The LX 570 also has standard four-zone climate control; satellite radio; and a power-assisted middle-row bench seat.
If that's not enough, optional extras include a 180-degree front camera to assist with the LX's sheer bulk; radar-adaptive cruise control; and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system. African Bubinga wood trim, heated and ventilated seats, and custom wheels are also available. A Luxury Package also adds on semi-aniline leather upholstery; a heated steering wheel; heated and ventilated front seats; heated second-row seats; and Smart Access keyless entry with pushbutton start.
Lastly, a new dual-screen entertainment system for the back two rows offers wireless headphones and dual sourcing--which means users can run both a gaming console and a DVD player on the system at the same time, for example.
