high stance and rear-roof styling hamper visibility
Consumer Guide



We've given the LX 570 a safety rating based purely on its standard features and sheer mass, as neither of the agencies that crash test cars have a current set of ratings for the full-size SUV.

The one serious issue with the LX 570's safety remains outward visibility; because of its high stance and rear roofline, you might get a good view out ahead but spotting vehicles just to the side or behind, for parking or lane changes, can be challenging. Large mirrors, front and rear obstacle sensors, and those front and rearview cameras help offset the loss.

However, no key safety features are skipped in the LX 570's standard equipment list, from a total of ten airbags, to stability control with off-roading modes, to active head restraints. A rearview camera is included in every model; an optional 180-degree front-end camera helps relieve some of the anxiety caused by the LX's tall, very flat front end.

As before, Lexus' Enform connectivity system with Bluetooth is standard, and now connects mobile apps to the SUV's audio system for what is claimed to be safer operation on the go. Safety Connect is also standard: it includes emergency notification services, and comes with a free year of service.

Conclusion

The Lexus LX hasn't been crash-tested, but its size and bulk speak to strong safety ratings.

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.
