Lexus LX570 Rent in Dubai
The Lexus LX570 Rent in Dubai shares its mechanical bits with the Toyota Land Cruiser, but its flashier styling means that it’s more likely to spend time parked up front at the valet stand. The LX is excellent off-road, which puts it in the same go-anywhere luxury category as the Land Rover Range Rover, which carries a higher base price. That’s not to say that the LX doesn’t cost a lot; liberal addition of options and luxuries easily puts the LX at the same price point as its British rival. A V-8 engine provides the motivation and it does so with few complaints. Handling is a different story; frequent corrections are required to keep the LX from wandering in its lane while cruising, and tackling twisty back roads at speed is likely to cause sweaty brows and uneasy stomachs. If you need a large luxury SUV with room for up to seven and enough ground clearance to climb rocks, however, the LX is one of few options in autodom that will do the trick.
Lexus’s largest SUV has been around for a while with no major updates, and 2020 is no different. A new Sport package for the three-row model adds a unique mesh grille, updated front and rear bumpers, narrower sideview mirrors with chrome detailing, and a black headliner. Inside, the LX’s optional cooled center console is now a standalone option and the optional rear-seat entertainment system now requires the buyer to spec the cooled center console.
The Lexus LX570 Rent in Dubai comes in both a two- and three-row arrangement; considering its size, we’d opt for the three-row since having a couple extra seats is never a terrible thing. The base level comes well-equipped with in-dash navigation, a 12.3-inch infotainment display, all-wheel drive, an adaptive suspension, and plenty of driver-assistance features. The Luxury package doesn’t add much to the bottom line, but it does add leather upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated first- and second-row seats, and elegant puddle lights integrated into the exterior mirrors.
To feed the 383-hp 5.7-liter V-8 under the hood, the LX ingests gargantuan gulps of air, an action that is anything but quiet. When you press the gas pedal heavily, the LX gathers itself with a big whoosh before trotting from zero to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. That’s sufficient to escape the “slow” label, but the LX is easily bested off the line by many of its competitors. For comparison, the Mercedes-AMG GLS450 leaps to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. The LX is not a luxury vehicle that allows its driver to sit back, relax, and glide to their destination. Although the ride is comfortable and shrugs off bumps in the road, the steering is numb and disconnected, and low-speed turns require plenty of arm work. Get the LX up to speed on the highway and the lack of steering feel creates a busy drive; small corrections to keep the vehicle on a straight path are frequent. This creates way more work than should be necessary for driving in a straight line.
If towing is of serious concern, forget the LX altogether and head to the Toyota dealer for the Land Cruiser. It offers an extra 1100 pounds of capability versus the LX’s 7000-pound rating.
In an Lexus LX570 Rent in Dubai, every day is Thirsty Thursday. The LX was built on a formula that predated the turbocharged-everything movement, and good gas mileage was apparently not on the checklist back in the early 2000s. With an EPA combined rating of 15 mpg, it is one of the least efficient vehicles on the market today. The EPA estimates the LX should deliver 18 mpg on the highway; on our 200-mile highway fuel-economy test route, we recorded 17 mpg.
The Lexus LX570 Rent in Dubai has a huge presence, but the big body doesn’t necessarily translate to a grand ballroom of an interior. Every row of seating is livable, although none of them offer exceptional space. Large families with growing kids may be better served by the Cadillac Escalade and its class-leading third-row spaciousness. The centerpiece of the LX interior is the 12.3-inch infotainment screen that towers atop the dashboard. It is complemented by the cabin’s extremely soft leather, real metal accents, and splashes of glossy wood that—refreshingly—don’t look tacky. The build quality and switchgear are worthy of the luxury label, despite the instrument panel’s somewhat cluttered cluster of buttons. Behind the third row, the LX has room for three carry-on suitcases. With the second and third rows folded, we managed to fit 29 cases. That number beats the Range Rover by three but the short-wheelbase Navigator managed 33 and the long-wheelbase version packed a whopping 45 cases.
The LX’s infotainment system is controlled by a flat, joystick-like controller located to the right of the gearshifter. It is cumbersome to operate and, in our experience, difficult to safely use while driving. Regarding the actual infotainment system and organization, we have a generally positive view of Lexus’s Enform interface. In the LX, a massive 12.3-inch screen allows for convenient split-screen operation. The center console offers redundant climate controls and features much appreciated volume and tune knobs. A flagship luxury SUV should come standard with every available piece of convenience technology on the market, but the LX has neither Apple CarPlay nor Android Auto integration. It doesn’t offer a data connection service for mobile Wi-Fi, either.
In addition to driving like an absolute tank, the LX has a number of standard driver-assistance features to give a sense of security while cruising around in hectic traffic. In addition to adaptive cruise control, it features automatic high-beams, front and rear parking sensors, and lane-departure warning. Key safety features include:
- Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
- Standard lane-departure warning
- Standard adaptive cruise control
