Lexus LX 2017 4-door SUV
Trim Shown: LX 570
This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, itself quite plush and upscale. Power comes from a strong 5.7-liter V8 also found in the Tundra pickup. It has a comfortable ride and a quiet, plush, and well-assembled cabin. Handling is lackluster but ultimately secure. The Land Cruiser we tested got only 14 mpg overall but was very capable off-road. Like the Toyota, the LX has an off-road crawl mode that manages throttle and braking over tough terrain. The height-adjustable suspension further enables the LX to traverse off-road. But the power-folding third-row seat folds up to the sides, limiting cargo space. For 2017, the Lexus Safety System+, which includes automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning, is standard.
