Keeping its promise of ‘Experience Amazing’, Lexus, exclusively distributed by Al-Futtaim Motors in the UAE, launched the 2018 LX 570 Signature luxury SUV that comes with numerous interior and exterior upgrades, adding further accents to its already stronger, grander and finer look.
Available in limited quantities, 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.
For added stability and agility while driving, 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.
Owners of the new LX570 Signature will also get to enjoy new alloy wheels with a darker color pattern for added presence and elegance on the road. Also, courtesy of Al-Futtaim Motors, the Signature model comes with a special Lexus branded prayer mat as well as a cargo mat.
On the new model, Christopher Buxton, Managing Director of Lexus at Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “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 LX 570 Signature comes in formidable 5.7-liter V8 engine producing 362 horsepower and delivering 90 percent 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.
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 3-eye LED headlamps on either side to create a captivating front, while their auto-leveling system adjusts illumination based on oncoming traffic.
As with other recent Lexus vehicles, the interior layout of the new LX 570 has been designed following the Lexus’ Human Oriented concept which locates controls in an easily accessible area closer to the driver, for a much more convenient and safer operation.
The new, larger 12.3-inch navigation screen can show several view combinations to help aid the driver, while a larger, 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display screen has been installed on the new, high-visibility Optitron meter. The LX 570 puts more information directly into the driver’s line of sight with the Heads-up Display, which shows information such as vehicle speed, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, warnings, information icons, and more.
Other key interior features include the Rear Seat Entertainment System using dual 11.6-inch screens and the Lexus-exclusive Mark Levinson Surround Sound Audio System, equipped with 16-channel output DSP amplifiers with sound output from 2-channel sources to create a realistic sound space.
The car comes equipped with a suite of safety features called Lexus Safety System + aiming at preventing accidents while enabling the driver to cruise confidently and safely. The package includes a pre-crash system with pedestrian detection, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beam.
The 2018 LX 570 Signature is initially available in Sonic Quartz with a Dark Rose interior across all Al-Futtaim Motors Lexus showrooms at AED 475,000.
