I am a very large man and did not think
that I would be able to really have the
comfort I had in my Navagator.I was
wrong. It has lots of room and there is
good head room. It runs like a champ

I looked and drove every SUV that was
for sale. The LX470 was and is by far
the top performance, easy to handle,
comfortable,and beautiful auto I have
ever owned. I was always a Mercedes
person until I bought my Lexus. Wow
what an Auto! If you have not Driven a
Lexus you are missing an outstanding
Comfort of the drive.
