cars – longer Lexus The GX 2021 is one of the best luxury SUVs with superior off-road capabilities with an impressive level of reliability and a spacious interior, although it has several flaws in other aspects, and today we will introduce you to it during its review.
Come Lexus The GX has a majestic and rugged overall design that suggests its ability to withstand off-road, and that begins in its front fascia that includes the iconic Lexus spindle grille, surrounded by triple LED lights, in addition to providing the Sport package for a more aggressive character with a lower grille with a rear splitter and 19 wheels Inch with black exhaust pipes.
On the sides, we note that it has a traditional box design that offers a large interior capacity and prominent side fenders with a large luggage door that allows for easy entry and removal of various items.
Cabin and Technologies
The Lexus GX offers a very practical and spacious cabin, albeit with one of the lowest luggage capacities in its class, but the tailgate, which opens sideways and allows the glass to be lowered, makes placing or removing some items quickly easy.
In addition, there are 3 rows with 7 seats in the cabin, with the first and second rows providing a spacious and excellent seating area with good back support, but the third row has limited space, and the seats are available with a leather covering with support for changing the position in 10 directions for the front seats, in addition to the presence of decorations from Wood and leather steering wheel with optional heated and ventilated seats and the possibility of premium leather upholstery.
On the technical side, there is an 8-inch center screen that is easy to use with several buttons for air conditioning and volume, but it suffers from an outdated interface design and without the support of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto available in several competitors.
The Lexus GX did not get any safety tests, but it comes with a large number of safety systems that include forward collision alert with automatic braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control, a rear view camera, and front and rear parking sensors.
performance and consumption
The Lexus GX comes with a 4.6-liter V8 engine, developing 292 hp and 438 Nm of torque, with four-wheel drive with an average consumption of 7.4 km / liter, via a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Lexus GX suffers from several obvious flaws, the most important of which is its old interior design, which needs to be updated badly, and this appears especially in the infotainment system that does not support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay like most competitors, in addition to the limited space for both the luggage compartment and the third row of seats. The engine’s fuel consumption is high without making up for it with a strong acceleration experience, and you will also find that the riding experience is harsh due to the car’s design specifically towards off-road.
Lexus GX prices in Saudi Arabia start from 261,625 riyals after tax, and the global price starts from 53,450 dollars.
