Lexus premieres its new LX worldwide

Now my immediate thought on seeing that large grille was that having this SUV trailing me on the highway at a close distance, would make me nervous. How about you?

It is large, in your face and intimidating, to say the least.

According to Lexus, the LX will be available in South Africa from the beginning of 2022.

“Since its launch in 1996, the LX has been well received as Lexus’ flagship SUV due to its high quality, ride comfort, and driving performance that can withstand all kinds of roads around the world. This has been achieved by refining the founding concepts of the LX: “reliability”, “durability”, and “rough-road driving performance”. The LX has sold a cumulative total of approximately 500 000 units in more than 50 countries and regions as of the end of August 2021. It’s worth mentioning that in South Africa, the LX does considerably well in the market, too,” said Lexus.

This LX is 200kg lighter and is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo petrol engine and a powerful 3.3-litre V6 diesel twin-turbo engine.

The LX also boasts a dual display with a 12.3-inch upper screen and seven-inch lower screen, as well as Back Underfloor View, which displays the area beneath the rear part of the vehicle as a world first.
