The Lexus LX 570 is one of the most popular luxury SUVs in this region, and understandably so. It offers a matchless blend of LS 460 luxury and Toyota Land Cruiser off-road chops. However, with the last full redesign having been done back in 2007, it’s a bit long in the tooth now. There have been a few substantial facelifts in between which have kept the flagship fighting fit, and now Lexus has announced a limited edition of the SUV in the UAE.
Called LX 570 Signature, the special edition model gets a few exclusive add-ons, including a new Spindle grille, new front bumper spoiler, black door mirror cover, darker door molding and a rear bumper diffuser for enhanced aerodynamic performance. Rounding off the cosmetic changes is a set of new alloy wheels. It also comes fitted with new high performance dampers, which, according to Lexus, improves, stability, agility and ride comfort of the vehicle. Having been tailor-made for the region, the LX 570 Signature comes with a special Lexus branded prayer mat.
“The Lexus LX 570 is our best-selling vehicle thanks to its strong ties with the people of the UAE. Now with the LX 570 Signature, Lexus fans who are looking for an even more premium driving experience can enrich their lifestyle with this exclusive luxury SUV,” says Christopher Buxton, Managing Director of Lexus at Al-Futtaim Motors.
Apart from these exclusive features, it is equipped with all the features and attributes that have made the LX such a popular vehicle here. Under the bonnet is the good old 5.7-litre V8 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while features like Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), Drive Mode Select, 4-Wheel Active Height Control (AHC) suspension, Crawl Control feature and the Multi-Terrain Select switch all add to its off-road prowess. It also benefits from a suite of safety features called Lexus Safety System+, which includes a pre-crash system with pedestrian detection, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beam among others.
The 2018 LX 570 Signature is now available in Sonic Quartz exterior finish with a Dark Rose interior across all Al-Futtaim Motors Lexus showrooms at Dh475,000.
