Lexus has launched the 2018 LX 570 Signature luxury SUV, which comes with numerous interior and exterior upgrades, according to a statement released by the company.

“The Lexus LX 570 Signature exhibits a host of exclusive add-ons, including a new front Spindle grille, new front bumper spoiler, black door mirror cover, darker door molding and rear bumper diffuser for enhanced aerodynamic performance,” said the statement.

The statement added that the LX 570 Signature is fitted with a Performance Damper, aiming at improving the handling performance and ride comfort of the vehicle, while enhancing the quality of the audio sound.

Strong UAE ties

“The Lexus LX 570 is our best-selling vehicle, thanks to its strong ties with the people of the UAE. Now with the LX 570 Signature, Lexus fans who are looking for an even more premium driving experience can enrich their lifestyle with this exclusive luxury SUV,” the statement quoted Christopher Buxton, Managing Director of Lexus at Al-Futtaim Motors as saying.

The LX 570 Signature, which is exclusively distributed by Al-Futtaim Motors in the UAE, comes with a 5.7-litre V8 engine, producing 362 horsepower and delivering 90 per cent of its peak torque at just 2,000 rpm.

“Combined with a super intelligent, electronically controlled eight-speed automatic transmission, the Lexus LX 570 demonstrates easy acceleration on-road and ample power at low and medium speeds off-road, while delivering better fuel efficiency. It also offers improved handling through Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), Drive Mode Select, 4-Wheel Active Height Control (AHC) suspension, Crawl Control feature and the Multi-Terrain Select switch,” described the statement.

A flagship model

It noted that the athletic exterior of the Lexus LX 570 combines the power of an SUV with the inherent luxury befitting a Lexus flagship. Its exclusive new spindle grille is paired with distinctive three-eye LED headlamps on either side to create a captivating front, while their auto-leveling system adjusts illumination based on oncoming traffic.
