Description

LX 450d Overview –

Back in January 1989 Lexus stunned the automotive world with the debut of the LS 400 sedan. Here was a Japanese manufacturer daring to encroach on the European prestige brand turf. Lexus produced, what was for many, a flawless sedan. It has developed from nothing AWD SUV’s in the RX and NX range but for their premium 4WD SUV they have relied on
the ubiquitous LandCruiser underpinnings. This brings many advantages and some disadvantages for the LX 450d. Make no mistake, the LX450d is a genuine Luxury 4WD though.

For years Lexus resisted adding the diesel engine to their flagship model. Finally they have the ammunition to fight some of the competitors and in fact go one better than some. It comes in slightly cheaper than the LX 570 with a few minor features missing and five seats. However it is competitive amongst prestige SUV’s in that it combines a level of luxury expected (and beyond in some cases) with true robust 4WD capability.
