Lexus had unveiled its India line-up some time back and launched the ES and RX but the biggest SUV which is the LX450d has just had its price being announced and it is priced at Rs 2.3 cr ex-showroom. The LX is the biggest and the flagship product in the Lexus range till the new LS luxury sedan gets launched. The LX450d is also the only Lexus to be offered with a diesel and the engine in question is as big as the SUV itself.
What you get is a 4.5l twin-turbo V8 with 261 bhp and 650Nm with a six-speed auto gearbox as standard. As you might expect from a Rs 2cr SUV, pretty much all the bells and whistles are covered here. You get a 19 speaker Mark Levinson audio system, heads up display, wireless charging, four zone climate control etc. There is also huge space inside with terrific comfort levels. The LX is a 5-seater. Thus we expect the LX450d to find buyers who want a large, luxurious SUV which stands out.
