The Lexus LX570 now has an Aero Package that will help it perform even better on the streets. The vehicle is actually an offroader, but is now being equipped to meet city road conditions as well, initially on the roads of South Africa.

Enjoying a distinct popularity in the SUV market, the LX570 has the best off road capability in the market, say reports. This performance, combined with the luxury that Lexus always guarantees has made it a spectacular offering. Now, making it more street worthy is sure to add even more to the appeal that the vehicle holds.

Specially designed with the tough weather conditions of Asia, Australia and South Africa in mind, the eight- seater SUV has now been equipped with the Aero Package.

Lexus says this modification has also been inspired by the fact that the US market will find the on-road capabilities more appealing.

Judging by the response it has received, the move has been a perfect one. The demand for the vehicle has far outmatched supply, ensuring that the market is wide open in favor of Lexus.

The vehicle is a permanent four-wheel drive with low range and four-wheel Active Height Control and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS).

Other features like the Adaptive Variable Suspension that it possesses will come in handy as it becomes more focused on being an on-road vehicle.

With a revised front and rear spoilers and 20-inch alloy wheels wearing Dunlop 285/50 R20 tires finishing up the aerodynamic body kit, the SUV will be much in demand for the on-road presence it ensures.

The vehicle can comfortably accommodate eight people plus luggage, with three rows of seats. The engine is a 5.7-liter V8, which totally gives it the punch that is called for, giving it 270kW at 5,600 rpm and peak torque of 530Nm at 3,600 rpm.

This is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission that ably handles high torque while simultaneously ensuring the Lexus quiet silky smoothness.

Like all the other Lexus vehicles, this one is also covered by a four year/100000km warranty and full maintenance plan. The standard LX570 is priced at R1 110,700, the LX570 Aero R1, 136,300.
