Lexus' flagship SUV is available in a single trim priced at Rs 2.32 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). Based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, the SUV is powered by a 4.5-litre diesel V8 motor that develops 265PS of power and 650Nm of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels. Lexus claims a 0-100kmph time of just 8.6 secondsand a fuel efficiency of 9.6kmpl. Highlights of the LX include all-LED headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, four-zone climate control, a moonroof and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.
Let's face it, the LX 450d is a glorified Land Cruiser. So why does it cost a whopping Rs 1 Crore more?
We'll let that sink in for a bit (curse you - CBU taxes!)
