The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Lexus GX 460 plays to a niche audience, as a luxury SUV for those who need serious towing ability and body-on-frame ruggedness combined with Lexus refinement; but there are too many factors limiting its appeal for normal family use. The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg delivers good performance and a luxurious interior--although it's a mainstream brand asking for a luxury-vehicle price.
