The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Lexus LX 570 marries an old-school SUV portfolio with all the leather, all the wood, and almost all the space. Sure, crossovers make more sense as luxury vehicles. But that's not why you want a 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class in your garage.
