Seating 8 people including the driver, the LX 570 has a 5.7 Liter V8 engine, 8 speed automatic transmission with Full Time AWD, 362 HP of power and a full range of driver assist and safety features.
While the Lexus LX 570 S has a lot in common with the Toyota Land Cruiser GTS, the differentiating points are enough to call it a class above any other SUV.
The acceleration and brake response is comparatively very good. The LX 570 turns better with minimal body roll and considering its height and weight; the car drives surprisingly smooth in the city and is very stable on highway speeds.
You can drive the car on Comfort ECO, Normal and Sport modes. Sport is my mode of choice, even though it burns a lot more fuel, it gives you ample power and agility to drive the car in any way you desire.
