A proximity key, which lets you unlock the car and drive away without removing the key from your pocket or bag. To start the engine, you push a button. Sidesteps, to help you get in and out of the car.
Satellite navigation, displayed on a 12.3-inch touchscreen. A 19-speaker audio system with USB and iPod ports, and Bluetooth connectivity for music streaming and phone calls. Wireless charging for compatible mobile phones.
Controls on the steering wheel for the sound system and your phone. Power-adjustment of the steering wheel for tilt and reach.
A head-up display that projects your speed and navigation prompts onto the windscreen, so that you can see it easily without taking your eyes from the road.
A rear-view camera, and front and rear parking sensors. Additional external cameras that allow you to select different views from around the car.
Bright and long-lived LED headlights that come on automatically when it gets dark, and that dip automatically for oncoming traffic. Windscreen wipers that operate automatically when it rains.
A leather-trimmed interior, with three rows of seats. Heating and power adjustment for both front seats. A memory for your adjustments to the driving position (steering wheel, external mirrors and 10-way adjustable seat), so that you can restore settings quickly after a companion has driven the car.
Powered fore-and-aft adjustment for the second-row seat, and powered deployment and stowage for the third-row seats. Powered opening and closing of the two-piece tailgate.
Four-zone climate control, so that the driver, front-seat passenger and two rear passengers can each set their desired cabin temperatures. A refrigerated coolbox in the centre console.
Two 11.6-inch DVD screens behind the front seats, and three sets of wireless headphones, so that rear-seat passengers can watch movies or play games. A sunroof.Active (radar) cruise control
, which will follow a vehicle in front at a pre-set distance, braking automatically if necessary. When the road ahead is clear, the LX will restore the cruise speed you have chosen.
A range of driving modes, which lets you adjust in concert how directly the car responds to the accelerator, how weighty the steering feels, and how comfortably the car rides. Eco mode will even tailor the air-conditioning for maximum fuel economy.
Adaptive suspension that optimises the ride automatically – and almost instantly – for smooth or rough roads, and that lowers the car at highway speeds to reduce body roll when cornering. You can also lower the car further when it is stationary, to make it easier for passengers to get in and out. And when you are driving off road, you can raise the car for more ground clearance.
Electronic traction control, which helps the car go further in difficult off-road conditions. Crawl Control, for negotiating very difficult off-road terrain. (This controls the accelerator and brakes automatically to maintain a speed you select; all you have to do is steer. You use this in conjunction with the low-range gearing.)
Settings for different off-road conditions that optimise the stability and traction control (also used in conjunction with the low-range gearing).
Shiny alloy wheels, and a full-size spare wheel. A system that warns you if a tyre is losing air pressure.
Ten airbags, and electronic stability control. (For the placement of airbags, and more on the LX570’s safety systems, please open the Safety section below.)
The LX570 comes with a four year, 100,000km warranty.
