    Lexus LX Summary

    Lexus SUVs have been a trend in India, especially in the late 90s and the early 2000s with the rich and famous opting for the luxurious version of the Toyota Land Cruiser. Back then, most of them were individual imports but now Lexus is all set to go on sale officially.

    In terms of styling, the Lexus likes a lot of funk unlike its plaid past. The kinked rectangular front grille splashed across the fascia gets horizontal slats and is flanked by the swept back LED headlamps. The edginess of the design continues through the length making the otherwise simple Land Cruiser body shell look funky. The tail design gets its shares of angles as well. The Lexus LX is the new Land Cruiser LC 200 underneath which means it has been built on the new platform that was developed for the new Tundra back in 2007. It is the same platform and build that has made the land cruiser a favourite of the NATO forces across the world for its durability and reliability.

    Lexus is Toyota’s luxury brand and ensures you get a good lot of it. The interior is opulent and upholstered in leather. The dashboard houses a large horizontal screen on the top of the dashboard, atop the multi-button waterfall centre console. It gets separate zone climate control for the front as well as between the seating rows.

    The front seats are power adjustable and the so is the panoramic sunroof. The auto-dimming wing mirrors are foldable and dip when the car is slotted in reverse. It gets parking sensors all-around with reverse parking camera as well. The rear seats, including those of the third row recline for comfort.

    The instrument console gets two analog dials for the speedometer and the tachometer along with four small dials for temperature, fuel and other vitals. It also has a TFT multi-function screen sandwiched between the dials to read out all the information. The steering gets controls for the music as well as other functions like cruise control, Bluetooth telephony et al.

    For safety, you have a cocoon of airbags along with driver aids like ABS, EBD, Electronic stability program replete with traction control, skid control et al. It also gets ISOFIX mounts for child seats standard.

    The Lexus LX will be powered by the 4.5-litre V8 diesel engine that is offered with the Land Cruiser LC 200 in India. The old-school V8 develops 270bhp of power and 650Nm of torque and comes mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that transmits the power to all four wheels through the transfer case. The four-wheel drive system gets crawl-control, hill descent and a host of other features including torque vectoring. The Lexus LX might also get the flagship 5.7-litre petrol V8 engine if it decides to compete with the top-of-the line Range Rover Sports V8 Autobiography.

    With the Toyota Land Cruiser priced to compete with the Range Rover Sport, the Lexus will certainly sit higher than the Landy. The Lexus sits seven and we expect the Japanese to price it a tad under the Range Rover to cash on the gap between it and the Sport which means a sub Rs 2 crore price tag. It will still have the Porsche SUV twins of the Macan and the Cayenne to deal with, but they sit on the sporty end of the spectrum while the Lexus is all about luxury.

    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things
      • Exclusivity
      • Humongous cabin
      • Feature loaded
    • Could be Better
      • Limited powertrain options
      • Feels heavy around corners
      • Looks too familiar to the cheaper Toyota Land Cruiser

    LX Verdict

    If you always dreamt of owning a Lexus and think the Toyota Land Cruiser LC200 is too ordinary for you, your chance to own one is finally here. The other reason you should get one is if you are Shahrukh Khan and you need something equally swanky to match your personality.

    LX Review

    For starters it’s huge and it’s got bucket loads of presence. That massive chrome grille will fill an entire rear view mirror of any hatchback. What it is, is Lexus’s flagship SUV, the LX450d. Now we won’t blame you if you say it looks quite ‘similar’ to a Toyota Land Cruiser that’s because it is based on one. Thanks to the Lexus badge it’s actually a much more premium and luxury laden version of the Land Cruiser LC200.

    What is it?

    For starters it’s huge and it’s got bucket loads of presence. That massive chrome grille will fill an entire rear view mirror of any hatchback. What it is, is Lexus’s flagship SUV, the LX450d. Now we won’t blame you if you say it looks quite ‘similar’ to a Toyota Land Cruiser that’s because it is based on one. Thanks to the Lexus badge it’s actually a much more premium and luxury laden version of the Land Cruiser LC200.

    For now, let’s forget about the similarities and concentrate on the LX for what it is, an absolute head turner. The massive size means it’s like a small house approaching and that’s not too difficult to miss. The front is typical Lexus thanks to the family spindle grille. The angular LED headlamps fit right in and along with the stylish cornering cum fog lamps give the front plenty of character. It’s when you move to the sides that the similarities are hard to ignore.

    The silhouette is pretty similar to the LC thanks to the slab sided design. What you also notice is the fabulous paint job. The paint job is simply stunning and everything from the metallic flakes to the finish stands out beautifully.

    Lexus assures us that this is a specialty that is exclusive and can’t be seen even on the most costly Toyota’s.  Overall, the LX might not have the most modern designs to flaunt, but what it lacks in curves, it more than makes up for it with an in-your-face design.

    How is it on the Inside?

    Climbing inside the LX reveals a premium looking and feeling cabin. The dashboard is dominated by a large screen (which does not get touch feature) atop the multi-button centre console. The instrument console looks great and offers a plethora of information. Like in most premium cars you also get a classy analogue clock in the centre of the dash, just in case someone finds reading a digital clock too passé. The front seats are massive and will envelope most healthy shapes with utmost ease. The seating also gives you a high perched view of the road ahead.

    Pretty much everything is operated by a button and you have plenty of those all over, some in places you cannot even see like the park assist button which is placed behind the steering wheel. This is one car that will mandate the read of the user manual. However in the midst of all the electronic assist, Lexus has surprisingly offered a manual sunshade for the sunroof. Guess you can’t have it all.

    Moving to the back, there is no denying the space, however it could have been packaged more smartly. The width is there for three people to sit abreast with absolute ease, however legroom isn’t as lavish as one would expect from such a large car. Don’t get us wrong, your knees are never going to protrude into the front seats unless you’re seven feet tall, but it’s just that we expected it to be a lot more roomier. The rear passengers are pampered well though and they better be considering a huge part of this Lexus’ clientele are going to be chauffeur driven. The passengers get their own 11.6 inch screen, four-zone climate control and reclining seats as well.

    How Does it Drive?

    To haul almost three tonne of weight, the LX comes powered by a 4461cc V8 diesel engine that churns out 270bhp and 650Nm of torque. Frankly the figures aren’t too impressive considering an Audi Q7 with a 2967cc V6 puts out 245bhp and 600Nm of torque. As a result the LX, isn’t really a scorcher. Put your foot down and the 6-speed automatic transmission starts whipping all 270 horses. There is a slightly pause before the LX starts gathering momentum and gets upto speed. Being a Lexus, the diesel thrum is well within limits and you can only hear it when the engine has downshifted to a higher gear.

    The LX gets a ladder on frame chassis to keep its rugged roots intact so it’s a given that it won’t stitch corners like its monocoque equipped competition. But drive it within is limits and the LX won’t give you much to complain about. You get five driving modes to choose from and adaptive variable suspension that as the name implies varies the shock absorbers stiffness.

    Changing the modes affect steering, ride and throttle responses, with ‘Comfort’ being your best bet. Sport S and Sport S+ does make driving more engaging but at the cost of ride quality which becomes lumpy. Its towering height means body roll is always omnipresent but it never scares you unless you really drive it like you stole it and assume that it’s a sportscar.

    Straight-line stability though is faultless and the car feels extremely planted even under crosswinds doing three digit speeds. It will also take manage to take you to your remote farmhouse which could involve taking it off the beaten path. Should the going get tough, all you need to do is use the Multi-terrain dial and choose from a variety of terrain options. For even more demanding conditions there is crawl control which adjusts the torque and brakes on each wheel independently which means the driver can focus on the steering wheel without any distractions.  So yes, the LX can handle some pretty tricky situations but that would mean getting the LX’s shiny boots dirty, something most LX owners would strictly refrain from.

    Should I buy one?

    If you always dreamt of owning a Lexus and think the Toyota Land Cruiser LC200 is too ordinary for you, your chance to own one is finally here. The other reason you should get one is if you are Shahrukh Khan and you need something equally swanky to match your personality. And finally you should definitely get one if you’ve got really really deep pockets and the LX’s ridiculous sticker price will barely affect it. But other than that Lexus also promises to offer a customer service like no other, but that is something we shall elaborate on at a later stage.

    Where does it fit in?

     At 2.32 crore ex-Delhi, the LX450d sits at the top of the heap of the premium SUV’s. While you do have options like the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover Sports and the in-house competition in the form of the LC200, the LX’s price means you can have 2 of them for the price of an LX450d. So the Lexus does not really fit in anywhere and has clearly created a void for itself. A very exclusive one that is.
