Expert Quotes:

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
Motor Trend

The Lexus LX 570 looks unlike anything else in the brand's lineup, if for no other reason that truly massive and has oversized proportions. Last year, it earned the brand's new corporate 'spindle' grille, giving it a little more consistency with the rest of the lineup. It's a handsome design language, but we're not sure that it quite fits the LX–something about hourglass fangs on a brutish box just doesn't jibe for us. The LX looks a little more subdued than its platforming-sharing Land Cruiser cousin, but it's by no means a clean design. Sometimes, a big SUV just wants to look like a big SUV, rather than a sport sedan.

It gets better inside, where the LX continues its use of high-quality materials in a luxurious yet functional cabin. The instrument panel is upright yet finely detailed, softly contoured, and accented with matte-metallics, and the lavish cabin is trimmed with high-end perforated leather and impressive veneers. It now wears dark-toned metallic trim and mahogany paneling, twinned with "cashmere" leather.

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.
