2018 LX 570 Superior gets unique design details and two-tone 21-inch wheels to headline the range — spot it at November’s

The 570 needs no introduction in this region, but anyway… Available in three trims, the big Lexus comes with a 5.7-litre 362 horsepower V8, 12.3-inch touchscreen, 10-way adjustable driver’s seat, 21-inch wheels, 10 airbags, 19 speakers, seven seats… Basically lots of big numbers. It’s big.

But it’s about to get bigger. A new 2018 flagship model has just leaked out before making its global premiere, and going on sale in select markets including China, Russia, and the Middle East. Called the LX 570 Superior, no doubt Lexus Middle East was preparing to take the veils off its latest luxury SUV at November’s motor show, before the leak somewhat spoiled the surprise.

The Superior sees no changes on the mechanical front, so the 5.7-litre V8 and the 362 horsepower figure remain, as does the eight-speed automatic transmission, and variable electric steering system.

The updates are all on the cosmetic side, with the LX 570 Superior getting a new exclusive grille design in a dark finish, which also matches the door mirrors, while the 21-inch alloy wheels come in a two-tone look.

Inside the car Lexus designers went with something called Shimamoku wood trim, and Rioja red interior hide accented with black details, and plenty of aluminium pieces like the pedals.

The 2018 Lexus LX 570 Superior is scheduled to go on sale after the summer in Russia starting from the equivalent of AED430,000, but considering the current headlining LX Platinum costs AED450,000 (in the the line starts from AED385,000) we’d expect it to receive a price hike once the Superior lands on our shores. A regional sale date post-Dubai motor show seems like a safe bet, so if you were planning on buying an LX hold out a few months to snag a Superior.
