    REVIEW: 2017 Lexus LX 570

    In the grand scheme of luxury SUVs, it's easy to find one that looks great, performs like a beast, and is so comfortable you could live in it. But how many of these so-called utility vehicles can handle rough terrain? Not many.

    Enter the 2017 Lexus LX 570, which is as comfortable as it is beautiful and doesn’t mind getting its wheels dirty. Read on to find out why San Jose drivers love this luxury SUV:


    The LX 570 accommodates seven passengers and has three rows of leather-lined seating, not to mention best-in-class configurability. The second and third rows fold down for additional cargo space in the already roomy SUV, and they also fold to the sides with a power-operated mechanism, creating a flat floor behind the second seats – an ability matched by no other car in its class. It also has a wide center stack for ultimate visibility, particularly when checking the premium navigation and entertainment display.


    The LX 570 is an SUV that's not all talk, with a 5.7-liter V8 engine with 8-speed automatic transmission, which has 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque. It comes with standard four-wheel drive and can tow up to 7,000 pounds, so winding winter roads will be no problem. Additionally, it has an off-road mode that locks the center differential and engages its low-speed transfer case for when the terrain gets rough.


    You’ll want comfort and entertainment on your excursions, and the LX 570 has the latest in features. It has standard quad-zone climate control, power moonroof, tilting and telescoping steering wheel, 14-way power driver’s seat, navigation system, infotainment system, 12.3-inch screen, Lexus Remote Touch, a 9-speaker audios system, Bluetooth connectivity, HD radio, USB input, and smartphone connectivity.

    If you’re looking for more, you can add a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, rear-seat entertainment, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated wood-and-leather steering wheel. Plus, you can personalize your temperature settings and opt for ambient welcome lighting.


    Traveling with the family makes safety of utmost importance, and Lexus values its drivers, so it includes the most comprehensive safety systems available standard on many of its models, including the LX 570. You'll love the peace of mind that the Lexus Safety System+ provides, with a myriad of active safety systems that bolster the SUV's rigid body design and other passive safety features.

    The LX 570 comes with Lexus Enform Safety Connect, Crawl Control with Turn Assist, Advanced Multi-View Monitor, premium triple-beam LED headlamps, active traction control, advanced braking system, ten airbags, intuitive parking assist, stability control, rain-sensing wipers, and Smart Stop Technology.

    Drivers looking for a luxury hybrid SUV in Silicon Valley have a lot of options to choose from, but when searching for the perfect family ride that can just as easily cruise into the city for a night out, nothing beats the 2016 Lexus NX Hybrid.

    The all-new SUV is spacious, gets great fuel economy, and has all the tech and features that you’ve come to expect from Lexus. Here’s our full review of the 2016 NX Hybrid:


    Life is full of the unexpected, so forge ahead prepared with a vehicle that will keep you and your passengers safe. The 2016 NX earned the Top Safety Pick+ title from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It received best possible scores in all crash tests, including moderate and small overlap, side and rear impact, and roof strength.

    Safety features on the NX includes 8 airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, daytime running lights, rollover protection, traction control, blind spot monitor, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.


    The NX Hybrid has standard power-adjustable front seats, with available leather, heated and ventilated seating. Drivers looking for the optimal road trip car can opt for reclining rear seats and a moonroof for those star-lit California nights. The Lexus SUV is very spacious, both up front and in the rear. With back seats up, there're nearly 17 cubic feet of cargo space, and with them folded it has almost 54 cubic feet.


    Drivers will enjoy a range of high tech features with the NX Hybrid, with standard Bluetooth, satellite, and HD radio, an 8-speaker audio system, Siri Eyes Free, a 7-inch display with rearview camera. Looking for more? You can also opt for Lexus Remote Touchpad, voice recognition, a deluxe 10-speaker system, adaptive cruise control, Lexus Enform Remote, and a wireless phone charging station. Drivers may also opt for a navigation system, so they're never lost on the road, whether on the other side of town or the opposite coast.


    Just because it's a hybrid doesn't mean it can't have power. Test drivers report that the switchover from the two electric motors and the engine is smooth, and once it's off the line, it delivers a good burst of power. It has 196 horsepower and 152 lb-ft of torque.

    Where the NX shines is in fuel economy: the 2017 NX Hybrid front-wheel drive gets 35 MPG city and 31 MPG highway, while the all-wheel-drive gets 33 MPG city and 30 MPG highway. Right now, this is as good as it gets for an SUV.


    Starting at $38,720 MSRP
