Test of the most expensive Lexus SUV: why Lexus LX 570 Black Vision costs more than 8 million rubles.

Everything is in the spirit of trends. We say «Black Series» (in this case «Black Vision»), we mean black accents in the exterior.

The main body color can be black, but does not have to be black.

For example, our test Lexus LX 570 Black Vision for 8,194,000 rubles is painted in sparkling white metallic. Contrasting!

Distinctive features are spelled out in black and white in the exterior of the massive frame SUV: darkened optics, black spindle-shaped radiator grille, black 21-inch forged wheels, darkened roof rails, as well as black door handles and covers on mirrors, bumpers and sills.

All the chrome that glitters on the younger versions is tinted. The name of the complete set will be reminded by the emblem and light projections when opening the front doors.

In contrast to the exterior, the LX 570 Black Vision’s interior can be exclusively black. What do they say, black slims?

In this case, black is young. Stylish solutions and interior elements, which may seem controversial or outdated in light design, are not striking in black.

Another would be to remove this blue backlight from the widescreen display of the media center and the on-board computer screen.

There are no complaints about the quality of the materials. Lots of leather, wood and aluminum. Plastic parts are made neatly.

The keys are tactilely noble. And, by the way, it’s nice that Lexus remains true to the physical buttons, rather than striving for a touch-digital world.

I just wish these buttons were more intelligently packaged around the cabin from the point of view of ergonomics.

Large front seats are moderately dense, comfortable, with cushions adjustable in length. It is a pity that they were not taught the art of massage.

Although, with such dimensions, each of them could fit one Japanese manual. The second row sofa is spacious.

A pair of screens in the backs of the front seats will entertain passengers. But they will have to fight for one remote control.

There is something to criticize the «black» LX 2020 model year. I myself am surprised that I say this, but the touchpad for controlling the media center, to which most modern Lexuses have been transferred, is more convenient than this joystick, for which it is almost impossible to hit the menu icon without being distracted from the road.

The interface and capabilities of the multimedia complex are outdated. The image quality from the rear view camera is mediocre.

The infotainment controls on the second row are reminiscent of the zero-based ones. And with such a large inner world in the LX, there is absolutely nowhere to put a smartphone so that it is at hand. Just don’t offer cup holders!

The «black vision» technique was not affected in any way. At the heart of the LX 570 is a continuous beam frame at the rear and independent suspension at the front.

A mighty 5.7-liter naturally aspirated «eight» with 367 forces and 530 Nm is hidden under the wide hood.

Traction is digested and distributed by an 8-speed automatic and a permanent all-wheel drive system with a demultiplier and a limited-slip differential. There are many assistants in the arsenal for overcoming off-road conditions.

A quick start from a standstill on the LX 570 is exciting. Not speed, but theatricality of the process. First, a slight hitch, then the 2.6-ton colossus lifts its nose and, under the growing, deep roar of the 5.7-liter V8, making its way into the cabin through the layers of soundproofing, rushes forward.

From zero to a hundred, the SUV accelerates in 7.7 seconds, which is pretty fast considering the weight.

But the speed inside is not felt. So, something flickers there outside the window. And the sound of the engine and exhaust system, which change as the speed increases, they are here with you.

True, the payback for such a performance is an immodest appetite of 25 liters of the 95th. However, with quiet movement, the average consumption can be lowered to 16-17 liters.

You can jump on it from row to row, but hardly necessary. Even in Sport mode, the LX 570 wobbles from side to side and doesn’t like harsh, emergency braking.

They are hard for him. Its story is comfort. Closed from the outside world and roll, looking at the roofs of crossovers.

The hydropneumatic suspension easily swallows small and medium bumps.

Only on large ones, like «speed bumps,» 21-inch wheels tremble, which you notice by small vibrations on the steering wheel and floor. 20 discs would have saved the day, but here we come back to the fact that the LX 570 Black Vision wears only the very best of what is in the Lexus «wardrobe».
