The New Beast In Lagos.

"The 2016 Lexus LX 570 is a plus-sized luxury SUVs with solid truck underpinnings and big-displacement V-8 engine."

The LX 570 has always been a popular car on the streets of Lagos, mostly seen with Lagos big boys, in convoys of politicians, also used as a family haulage.
Lexus has over the years made the LX a big competitor to Range Rover, vogue supercharged, even as it is built on the same body on frame as the Toyota land cruiser.

This year, the automaker has given the LX its second major reform in this model's generation, which started with the 2008 model year. The look is very different from the previous model, with its facelift at the front which consist of a spindle grille, LED headlamps, turn signals, and fog lamps. This gives it an upright look, with well sculpted fenders and high shoulders, that has muscled up the LX since the last redesign.

Inside the LX there are some modest changes to the interior, it now has a big 12.3-inch infotainment screen, and the cabin is trimmed in some warmer, upgraded materials.
The 2016 Lexus LX 570 carries a strong 383-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine. This model has had that for quite a few years, but this year it gains an 8-speed automatic transmission in place of the outgoing model’s 6-speed. The LX is very suitable for offroading, it not like owners will actually take it off road but it good to know it has that feature.

For a passenger, the LX 570 is delightfully spacious. There's room for seven. The front seats are comfortable and they sit quite high like the Range Rover, the second-row bench powers to and fro for more leg room, 'a quality a Lagos businessman looks out for'.

The LX 570's big V-8 has a high tendency to penalize the fuel economy. The fuel economy is estimated at 13 miles per gallon city, 18 miles per gallon highway, 15 miles per gallon combined, (4.5 litres equals 1 gallon); which simply means 'it go chop fuel' but with the luxury the LX offers buyers won't compromise.
