2014 Lexus LX 570 Review

I had the opportunity to do a one week test drive of a Lexus LX 570 SUV for evaluation purposes. No other compensation was received for this post. Thoughts are my own.

I have never driven a Lexus before. Since it usually has a higher price tag than most other cars, I never even thought about ever driving one. So I’m really glad that I got to drive a Lexus LX 570 for one week. The very moment I stepped inside and looked around, I started to understand why a lot of people love Lexus vehicles.

From the outside, the Lexus LX 570 already looks really beautiful. It seats up to 8 people with the third row being foldable. I just love SUVs with foldable 3rd row seats because of the flexibility it gives us. I know that I can use the vehicle for when I need lots of luggage space or when my friends ride with me.

I love that it has enough leg room for when I need to stretch a little. And during the time I had the Lexus LX, we were able to install 2 car seats on the second row and 1 car seat on the 3rd row. Still, we didn’t feel too cramped.

You may notice that the backs of the driver and passenger seats have monitors. That’s because you can opt to have a rear entertainment system on the Lexus LX. This is really helpful for those who travel with kids. We all know how chaotic it can get inside the car if your family is out on a long drive and the kids are bored.

The Lexus LX 570 is very powerful — powerful enough that you can use it for towing if you ever need to —  and it can be driven in any weather condition. During the time I had it, we drove to Pleasanton (which is an hour’s drive from our house depending on how traffic it is) for a birthday party. I got impressed because the kids never complained. And we all felt so comfortable in our seats.

One other thing I really liked about the Lexus LX 570 is that it has a cooling compartment. I love that I can put my son’s milk inside the “mini fridge” so it stays chilled. I honestly think all SUVs should have this kind of feature.

I hated to say goodbye to this awesome SUV because I really loved it. But, yep, I had to let it go (♫ turn away and slam the door ♫ … in case you didn’t get that, it’s a line from FROZEN’s “Let It Go”).


BUY IT! The price for the Lexus LX 570 SUV starts at around $82,630 depending on any customizations or options you choose.

It may be a steep price for some (or most) of us but this has just really become our family’s dream car! Don’t forget to visit your nearest Lexus dealer so you can experience it for yourself!

  1. I have not driven a Lexus LX 570, but I have ridden in a Lexus vehicle before as a passenger and I must say they are luxurious vehicles. I love that there’s a mini fridge in the Lexus LX 570, thank you for this review.

  2. OH WOW!!!! I bet you were thrilled to no end for the chance of driving this nice car for evaluating purposes only. I think you should have a special link and anyone that has checked your review out or followed Lexus they would take $100.00 off the price-lol. The car is beautiful tho it’s only my
    hubby and I so I will stick with my Durango-lol The pics and review was very well written-Thanks

  3. Wow what a nice car. My kids would love the entertainment package. It would be great for traveling with the kids. I think it also is great that it has fold down 3 seating are.

  4. I wish I could afford that price, but unfortunately I can’t. 🙁 My husband and I are loyal Toyota customers, so a Lexus is something we would love to have one day in the future. I’ve heard wonderful things about the LX 570, and that it is better than other luxury SUVs when it comes to having kids.

  5. Wow, it looks amazing! I can’t believe how much space it has! I bet that was fun to drive. A little (ok a lot) over my price limit but a girl can dream!

  6. I have never driven a Lexus, but this Lexus is such a gorgeous luxury car with all the features of a classy car. I like the color and the interior is very pretty. I also like that it is very roomy, and I can take this car on long road trips. Very dependable car.

  7. Wow!!! I have seen the commercials for the Lexus, and I love it! Thank you so much for all of the pictures! I am so jealous! I bet you didn’t want to give it back….haha

  8. What a beautiful vehicle! I love the interior and the roominess it has

  9. I have never driven a Lexus and your report makes one realize why this is z luxury car. I am glad that you were able to enjoy your test driving of it.

  10. Wow, lucky you to be able to drive this beauty even if it was just for one week. But, at a price of over $80,000! I know I won’t be driving that vehicle any time soon. If they start adding a feature of a car being able to clean your house and cut your lawn too, I may consider paying that price. Thanks for the review.

  11. Wow…what a sweet ride! A silly amount of money for a car but I guess you get what you pay for.

  12. I have always wanted a SUV LEXUS. I think that they are so pretty and I bet a nice ride.Maybe when I get rich. lol

  13. What an awesome experience! You’re pretty lucky – that sounds like a fabulous drive!

  14. The Lexus LX 570 is a beautiful SUV. We are fortunate and own a Lexus ES, but the starting sticker for the SUV is way above what we will be spending on our next vehicle.

  15. I’ve been borrowing my mom’s Audi for the last six months, and between that and this post, it sure has me re-thinking my plans to buy a used Honda! It’s so hard to go back to a regular car after something as nice as this!

  16. Wow. I had no idea these were so luxurious. They have every thing anyone could ever want in a vehicle and then some. The Lexus LX 570 SUV is amazing to say the least. I even loved the color of both the interior and exterior. By looking at it I didn’t think it had a third row in it. The Lexus LX 570 SUV seats 8 people but looks like a normal size SUV. That is really impressive.

  17. Honestly, when I ‘car shop’ the inside of a vehicle is what makes my decision. I could drive the worst looking car if the inside was luxurious. FORTUNATELY, these SUV’s are BEAUTIFUL on the outside as well as on the inside. I would love a chance to own one of these beauty’s

  18. This is a beautiful vehicle. We are currently shopping for vehicles and this one fits into our criteria. My family is a family of 7, so the space is great. The TV’s help with keeping our little ones occupied as well. We frequently travel with the kids, so the luggage space and the fridge would be perfect.

  19. I would love to buy this model of Lexus, but I simply can’t afford it and probably won’t be able to for a long time. & For that load of money I would probably go with a different brand…

  20. It must have been awesome to test the Lexus vehicle, maybe a little hard to go back to your ‘old’ vehicle after the week was up? Even the rear seat looks comfortable, and the paint color looks custom and unique.

  21. Very nice vehicle!! We are going to be purchasing a new car in about a year so I will consider this one. I really love the interior, which is a lot better then my pilot!!
