Lexus have aimed square at the big guns with their new LX570. This behemoth 8 passenger SUV has been further improved upon over its predecessor making it equally capable on the road and off it. With a luxurious interior equipped with all the creature comforts, utilities and entertainment features you would ever need, there is no doubting the capability of the LX as a long distance tourer. Lexus have further fettled with the LX to make it an astonishing off-roader as well, not surprising seeing as the Toyota Land Cruiser is the base for this gentle monster. There’s a massive 5.7L V8 gasoline engine on offer making 383 hp and 403 lb/ft of torque of which 90% is available from 2200 rpm – ample performance to have the better of the highway or the dirt. All that output goes through a 6-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip locking center differential, which when combined to the Active Traction Control, updated Crawl Control, Hill Assist, Turn Assist and Multi-Terrain Select along with the adjustable ride height make it a highly capable vehicle in all conditions.

Lexus cars, especially their saloons, have often been considered the boring businessman’s ride of choice. Of course the LX is in a different league and you would be wise to put any biased choices aside and take a long, hard look at this one. Performance and peace of mind are after all irreplaceable; forget what everyone says…

Toyota Land Cruiser

The choice of the high and mighty in power across the world, the Land Cruiser has earned its place on the pedestal of off road vehicles. Only just, for only a handful of passenger vehicles can provide Dakar winning performances and luxurious cross country highway drives all at the drop of a hat.
