So we got a 2016 Lexus LX 570


The Lexus LX 570 is nearing the end of its lifecycle. If previous generations are anything to go by, there should be an all-new LX every 10 years, so the next-generation model is theoretically due by 2018. So it was a surprise that Toyota gave both the Land Cruiser and the LX 570 a major makeover for 2016, after a couple of minor facelifts since the current generation’s 2008 debut.


Clearly every single body panel has been changed, except maybe for the roof. Instead of simply looking like a Toyota with a redone front end, the Lexus finally has its own unique look, although the bloated overall profile is still very Land Cruiser, far from the Range Rover it is now competing with on price.


Even the interior is completely new, as the LX finally benefits from the modern multimedia technology found in its smaller sedan siblings. It still suffers from having those side-hinged fold-up third row seats though, as a consequence of its live-axle rear suspension, something that none of its rivals except the Cadillac Escalade, although the latter still manages to have a fold-down third row.


The 2016 Lexus LX has hugely improved in a lot of ways, but the also retains all of its previous strengths as well as flaws. More on that in the full review.

What do you think?



  1. i like it quite a bit. especially the rear lights looks pretty cool in the flash. love the sequential indicators they copied from audi.

    like the colour of the one you guys got, too

  2. Your articles need better editing before publish..

  3. You are my best buddy, right?

  4. Most overvalued SUV in the market

    • in theory i would agree (but even more so is the range rover in my opinion..). in practice though, sales numbers are the ultimate truth.. and they probably speak a clear language

  5. Fortunately, lets face it you can’t trust Japanese cars dealers when it comes to car face lift or overall body change they are not clear about it. So when you see big sale or deal package, you must know it going to change next year.It happens to me.

    • Rightly said Mohamed….

      Next year ( SUPER SALE!!) : Car for AED 225,000 with free service package worth AED 10,000!!. Total spend by customer = 225000 + 0 = AED 225,000

      and the year after that….(BIG SALE!!!): Discounted Car for AED 215,000 with discounted car service worth AED 15,000 for AED 10,000

      Total spend by customer = 215000+10000 = AED 225,000
