Lexus has launched its top model LX 450d SUV in India, with a price tag of Rs. 2.32 crore. This SUV is available in one top-of-the-line model with a V8 diesel engine and in seven different colors.
As far as looks are concerned, the Lexus LX is all about presence and its designs says this very well. The face exhibits the large Lexus grille and LED headlamps while the side is typical SUV lines, thanks to the design of the roofline and flared wheel arches.
The seven seat cabin is all leather based with a deep brown dashboard and dark beige upholstery. It is quite feature loaded and has all the luxury that can be expected from the vehicle of this segment. Of these important elements include: a 19-speaker Mark
Levinson audio system, wireless charging port in center console, screens for passengers in the second row as well as a four-zone climate control system.
The Indian market gets the LX in the 450d trim which means that it is powered by a huge 4.5-litre diesel V8 producing 270bhp/650Nm of torque. All this power and torque is channeled through a six-speed AT and an AWD system which can be operated through a terrain management system. The mammoth output has given this 3.3-tonne beast a 0-100kmph time of 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 210kmph.
With this price tag the only competition for the Lexus LX is the Range Rover in the 4.4 SDV8 Autobiography trim level which is priced at Rs 2.27 crore.
