By far the best SUV ever made,
especially if you care about luxury.
Compared to my previous Range Rover
(and even Landcruiser), the LX470 is
simply amazing in its ability to
deliver quiet, luxurious, reliable
performance. It is also beautiful and
stylish, despite being around since
1998. Off-road capability (if you
dare) is astounding and as good as any
stock 4x4 out there. On-road
performance is sumptuous, smooth,
quiet, relaxed. Driving the LX470
just makes you feel like the world is
a more peaceful place. Security in
snow and off-road is first-rate.
Gorgeous interior, tasteful wood trim.
Variable ride height is nice for off-
roading. Split tailgate is great --
gives a nice clean place to sit and
put on ski boots after driving through
mud/snow (much better than lift-up
tailgate). HID headlights add
distinctive look. Very quiet!
Rain-sensing wiper would be nice.
Steering-wheel mounted radio controls
would also be nice, as would a heated
steering wheel. Another 100 horsepower
would be great. Gas mileage could be
better, but in this league, they are
I have only one negative comment - and
that is the way the rear gate opens.
It opens like a door instad of like a
gate. When putting groceries in the
back, I like to have the gate serve as
a cover for me in the rain while I load
groceries. I'm not a fan of the way
this back gate is designed.
Navigation system - most definitely!
I'll never want another car without it.
Open the gate UP instead of out. I'd
also like to see a bench seat feature
(or two separate seats without the
console in the middle) for us ladies.
There's nowhere to put our purses when
someone's in the passenger seat.
Overall excellant vehicle.This vehicle
does everything well.Materials and
craftmanship are second to none.Ride is
buttery smooth and very elegant.Mark
levinson sound system rivals many home
systems.The navigation system is very
easy to use and is very detailed. The
handsfree Bluetooth Phone system is
excellant, every car should have
this.Overall this car is highly
recommended and would purchase again
next time around.
