The Lexus LX570 has just received a significant price drop in Malaysia. Launched at RM923,960 in 2015, the flagship SUV now goes for RM850,000, a reduction of almost RM74k. Specs remain unchanged, so this is a genuine price drop, no caveats. If you’d like to know, it’s RM851,872.20 in Sabah and Sarawak, RM454,283.31 in Langkawi and RM 455,092.21 in Labuan.

The third-generation J200 LX570 is in Malaysia in its latest facelift form, powered by a 3UR-FE 5.7 litre V8 engine, with 362 hp at 5,600 rpm and 530 Nm at 3,200 rpm. It’s paired with an AE80F eight-speed automatic transmission, together with a full-time all-wheel-drive driveline that includes two-speed transfer and variable fore-aft torque split via a Torsen limited-slip differential. It gets to 100 km/h in 7.7 seconds, on to 210 km/h.

It gets full LED lighting on the outside, with massive 21-inch wheels to go with the equally gigantic spindle grille. Under the skin, it gets adaptive variable suspension (AVS), auto height control as well as crawl control. A Multi-Terrain Monitor offers an image display of areas around the vehicle when traveling at low speeds (up to 20 km/h), as well as an underfloor view.

Highlights inside include the 19-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround System with 16 channels of amplification, and a Rear Seat Entertainment system with dual 11.6-inch screens for second row passengers. On the safety front, the LX570 comes equipped with ten airbags, all-speed active cruise control, blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert (plus reverse camera), lane departure warning and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
