2020 Lexus LX 570
The luxurious full-size crossover has bee around for years. The current generation rides for more than a decade. However, it looks like we won’t see a redesign in another year or two. Therefore, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 is about to come without important changes.
It will continue with familiar design characteristics, which make it a capable one of the most capable models in the class. Of course, their several drawbacks, which is not surprising, considering the model’s age. Fuel economy is poor, while the cabin looks a little bit outdated.
- Powerful engine
- Excellent off-road performances
- Hi-end interior materials
- Poor fuel economy
- Lack of latest tech goodies
- Small cargo area
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Lexus LX 570 will definitely continue in the same way. It shares most of its characteristics with another luxury SUV, Toyota Land Cruiser. Two models are pretty much the same in terms of mechanics, so it’s no wonder that the LX is so capable once it gets off the road.
After all, you can count on all those off-road goodies like crawl control, adjustable suspension, locking center differential, two-speed transfer case etc. On the other side, it features its own styling, which actually makes it a little bit less capable than the Land Cruiser. This particularly refers to bumpers, which are lower, which in practice has a bad effect on approach and departure angles.
When it comes to the interior design, the LX definitely shows its age in some aspects. First of all, the dashboard looks a little bit older compared to most competitors. However, we have to say that all materials feature top-tier quality and that this model still features one of the finest cabins in the class. When it comes to comfort, first and second rows are pretty comfortable, while the third one seems cramped.
The cargo area is also quite small for the class. On the other side, the list of standard equipment is impressive and it includes things like leather upholstery, moonroof, 12.3-inch touchscreen, navigation, a nine-speaker audio system, satellite radio, USB ports, Bluetooth and much more.

It comes in a pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The LX accelerates pretty well, while the overall ride quality feels pretty nice. On the other side, a big complaint goes to the fuel economy, as you can count on only 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
