Lexus LX 570 crowned as the best Luxury SUV in Qatar
Lexus LX 570 received an award as the best Luxury SUV in Qatar by Arab Motors and Maqina auto magazines. The award was presented to RK Murugan, AAB Acting CEO, during an event held in Lexus showroom. The Lexus LX represents a paradigm for automotive perfection and reflects the evolution of this iconic vehicle to offer luxury, technology and elegance through its sophisticated exterior design, progressive luxury interior and advanced technologies.
Receiving the Award, RK Murugan said, “We at AAB are extremely pleased to know that Lexus LX has won the prestigious award for the best Luxury SUV in Qatar. The Lexus LX, with its outstanding performance and versatility has already carved a niche in the luxury segment.”
The Lexus LX is for those seeking that special combination of unparalleled off-road performance and luxurious daily driving. With a powerful V8 engine, sophisticated 4WD chassis and seating for eight, the LX 570 remains one of the few luxury utility vehicles that combines sumptuous luxury with brute performance, providing a silken-smooth ride along with the capability to venture where few others can – all while surrounded in unsurpassed interior comfort and refinement. The result, unsurprisingly, is a driving experience taken to new heights.
The restyled front end wears an even bolder rendition of the Lexus signature spindle grille, framed by elegant satin chrome trim and complemented by a distinctive standard LED headlight, turn signals and fog lights.
Powerfully elegant design
The exterior of the Lexus LX combines the power of an SUV with the inherent luxury befitting a Lexus flagship. The front profile provides a sense of stability with its daringly muscular lower portion, while the side profile emphasizes a refined yet bold and dynamic underbody and the rear cuts a sturdy yet graceful outline. The spindle grille projects a sense of strength and elegance, and symbolizes the ever-evolving nature of Lexus. The lower portion of the grille takes on a protective shape while the inner grille bar juts out energetically from the hood and merges with the grille frame to form a single hard surface. Sequential LED turn signal lamps are utilized in a Lexus vehicle for the first time. These innovative lamps light up in a flowing sequence, increasing visibility when turning right or left.
Outstanding performance and versatility
The Lexus LX 570’s formidable 5.7-liter V8 engine produces 362 horsepower and 54.0 kg-m of torque at 3,200 RPM. It also delivers 90 percent of its peak torque at just 2,000 rpm to confidently tackle the challenges of demanding terrain with a smoothness that takes driving freeways and city streets in easy stride. Combined with a super intelligent, electronically controlled eight-speed automatic transmission, the Lexus LX demonstrates easy acceleration on-road and ample power at low and medium speeds off-road.
