The 2020 Lexus LX 570 is out on your nearest showroom. Lexus LX 570 is one such car that shares its instincts from its Toyota siblings, the Land Cruiser with some finishing and luxury. There will be no regret if we compare this big daddy of SUV with a much higher priced Land Rover Range Rover because of excellent off-road capabilities the car handles. But we won’t do that to hurt a Land Rover lover’s sentiments. Although it does not mean that the 2020 Lexus LX570 has a liberal price tag. The luxuries on offer do make it costly on an average American pocket.

Overall Rating


The 2020 Lexus LX570 is of course a beautiful SUV in the segment but the term beautiful is subjective to everyone. There are a lot of features it offers and some of them are best in class too, despite the fact that the vehicles lacks practicality. It has less efficient engine although its reliable and long lasting. The cabin can seat up to 8 passengers on board and take care of their comfort very wisely. It was built on the same ground as the Toyota Land Cruiser and has good off road capabilities. 

The Large Size of the SUV is a good point for luxury SUV. This car is large enough to mark its presence on the road. The size of the SUV remains the same in both the options this car comes with either the 2-row option with 5 seats or the 3-row options with 7 seats. The V8 engine which comes with this vehicle is good enough for a car-sized this big, though it feels less efficient in providing fuel economy. Although its a more reliable engine for breaking terrains than any other car in its segment. The luxury SUV keeps up with the new features and standards of luxury. Though some notable drawbacks inside the car that draws one’s attention are the limited cargo space for a 7 seater and the improper infotainment feature of the car.

7.0/10

2020 Lexus LX570 comes in 2 trims the Two row and the Three row both have similar features on board but additionally the three row gets an extra row of seats without affecting the size of the car. The three row can board up to 8 passengers inside the SUV while the two seater can comfortably take 5 passengers.

Which Trim one should you Consider buying?

If one likes to add some more passengers inside the SUV, the three row is a good option but it affects the roominess of the car and cargo space. Two row is spacious and is technically more roomier. Features are all the same in both trims.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Engine and Performance

7.5/10

The LX 570 is equipped with a monstrous engine a 5.7lt V8 that produces just 383hp of power. The engine is thirstier than any other in its segment making it less efficient in every aspect. Apart from some new tunings and setup, there’s nothing new in the engine.

The reason for being less efficient is the 6000 pounds weight of the vehicle and the bigger size of the engine. The engine lag and less responsiveness make it a busy driving experience for the driver.

Until 2016 the Lexus LX 570 came with a 6-speed automatic transmission but was swapped with an 8-speed automatic transmission and continues to date. The transmission is quick and responsive but you cannot rely on it for lower speeds. However, we feel the vehicle could have gathered more action from its transmission and that gets missing.

Does the Lexus LX 570 accelerate well?

It surely does not own the tag of being a slow car. However, its rivals come with better acceleration and torque figures. The LX 570 gathers potential until 0-60 miles of speed which it covers at around 7.2 seconds.

Pressing the gas pedals heavily makes it move a little faster and brings the action after 60 miles of speed is reached. However, the steering feels disconnected and pushing after a limit makes it less controlled on the road.

How good is the Ride and Handling of Lexus LX 570?

The car surely comes with a better off-road capability and that means it handles great, but only at low speeds. This is not a car that can cruise freely on long runways with the driver seating relaxed on the seat. It requires regular attention and interruption every time. Ride quality and comfort are aided by the heavyweight of the vehicle even on tough roads. Their also availability of height-adjustable suspension setup. We found there’s complain from the third row in terms of comfort and space.

How well does the Lexus LX 570 brakes?

The braking of the Lexus LX 570 is made possible by 13.9-inch diameter brakes. The vehicle is well equipped in the braking part it gets Four-wheel power-assisted discs along with sensors and four-channel multi-terrain anti-lock braking mechanism. There is a four-piston front caliper along with brake assist feature for uphill and downhill terrains.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Fuel Economy

6.4/10

The LX 570 is certainly not an SUV that can be brought to everyday use, not does the size is big enough but along with that, it has a considerably lower mileage output per gallon. The thirsty 5700cc V6 engine which comes equipped with this long machine gets around 18 miles per gallons on paper.

2020 Lexus LX 570 Interior

7.0/10

The interior of this car is better equipped in every sense, it looks luxurious and superbly built from the inside. The car has an immense road presence. There’s nothing extraordinary to be precise but it gets details. It offers a relaxed and more liveable interior and a palatable center console. There’s so much leather inside that everything feels high class in this ballroom. LX 570 uses extremely soft feel leather and high-quality material. The build quality and design surely get a “Luxury” tag. There are metal and glossy wood fit and finish on the dashboard.

The three-row seater has ample room and comfort features extended until the last row. The cabin is roomy and that’s not a place which needs to be defined for a car which sizes this big. A 14- way and 12- way adjustable seats come optional with memory function. Extending the comfort features there’s height-adjustable headrest on all seats. The Luxury package includes four-zone climate control and ambient lighting.

Is the Infotainment of the Lexus LX570 sound enough?

We hold a neutral opinion for the infotainment it gets. It's the most difficult Infotainment control we ever met, who keeps a joystick controller placed right side of the gear shifter for controlling the infotainment system. There’s a 12.3-inch touch screen infotainment system that gets the split-screen operation. The interface of the Lexus is balanced and gets a thumbs up for sure. It does pack the convenience features mapped with the latest technology.

  • Lexus Enform interface
  • 12.3-inch infotainment screen
  • Split-screen operation
  • Redundant climate control
  • Joystick and remote operated Infotainment

What are the creature comfort features in the interior?

This posh rover has the most unique comfort features in its interior. The features on offer are not sophisticated but are balanced and neat. The car's comfort features pamper you throughout your ride. Some of the most notable features on offer are :

  • LX sport package with great comfort features
  • 14-way driver and 12-way front passenger power-adjustable seats
  • Perforated leather interiors
  • Leather-wrapped seats
  • 28 Air vents inside the cabin
  • Four Zone climate control with air filtration
  • Heated wood and leather steering wheel
  • Power open-close rear door
  • Dark mocha and linear espresso wood interior
  • Memory seats, mirror and steering settings
  • Illuminated front console
  • Coolbox in the center console

How much Cargo space is available?

With all the seats in place, the car has a very limited space to pack your cargo. But there is an option to pack your belongings if needed. Folding the third-row seats can pack up a lot of things. Even the second-row seats can be removed on necessity. However, folding the third-row seats which hangs on either side of the cargo area is not a handy space configuration. The two-row seats get a generous 49.5 cu ft amount of cargo space that can pack a lot and can be extended to 79.7 cu ft of space on removing the second-row seats.

6.0/10

The Car is built superior on the outside and feels big and luxurious. The huge ground clearance and a wheelbase that is undoubtedly the biggest in the segment make it grand purchase for anyone. The sharp and edgy headlights extend to the front grille bordered with chrome. The SUV gets more muscles and lines in the sides and is designed aerodynamically, its longer and taller design makes a great road presence.

Lexus LX 570 Vs Lincoln Navigator

Its competitors the Lincoln Navigator is far more luxurious and spacious and practical on the road with a more efficient engine under its hood. Its noble design and style does stand out of the crowd. It does not offer good off road experience and is limited to highways and cities.

2020 Lincoln Navigator

Lexus LX 570 Vs Infiniti QX 80

Infiniti QX 80 has good ride and handling capabilities than the Lexus LX570, but it does lack interior features and technology for the same price range. The LX 80 does get a similar powered engine and has a thristier engine like the LX570. The car gets a similar silhouette as of the Lexus but is less stylish and has a boxy design. Its very much similar to what the LX570 offers in engine and performance but the LX570 wins in comfort and interior features.

2020 Infiniti QX80

 

2020 Lexus LX 570 Final Verdict

Lexus LX 570 is the largest 7 seater SUV offering from the brand. The LX series has lived on the American roads for more or less 25 years now. There has been a humongous change in the design and build of this car since its launch. The last generation of the LX 570 was updated in 2019 and now the car gets some more new features bundled in 2020. Toyota’s luxury brand is a popular flavor among many American buyers but definitely this large SUV is not worth the value for the price it comes.Well ! If one can skip the price tag and ownership cost they might love this large SUV.
