There is an 8-speed automatic transmission unit for the engine along with four-wheel drive. Multi-Terrain Select is available for the variant that has several driving modes.
5-speed Crawl Control also helps in measurement of the pace of the car across terrains which are challenging and adjusts the brakes and torque automatically. There is a single configuration for the LX 570 petrol variant. There are triple headlights that also get L-shaped illumination and exquisite Takumi craftsmanship. There is semi aniline leather upholstery along with the Shimamoku steering wheel trim. The hospitality spirit or omotenashi is visible all throughout the car with features like the Lexus Climate Concierge for individually customizing temperature and the liquid crystal 11.6 HD AI display setup at the rear.
