Reports from Motor Authority
indicate that Toyota Landcruiser’s cousin, Lexus LX570’s 2016 model have been leaked way before it’s official unveiling date.
And the picture shows such a handsome looking car that Lexus has come to be known with.
Motor Authority reminds us that both vehicles can trace their roots to the 2008 model year, when they were introduced as all-new models, and both were given updates for 2013. We should see the latest versions of the Land Cruiser and LX 570 officially revealed in the summer ahead of a sales launch before the year is out.

The latest images are likely to be a scan taken from a Lexus brochure in Japan.
They were posted on the Facebook page of the BCE Cars Abu Dhabi dealership and show the revised exterior of the 2016 LX 570 as well as its revamped dash.
There is a more aggressive take on the Lexus spindle grille introduced for 2013. And the shape of the headlights is also new. This is made possible thanks to some new front fenders, which also feature sharper creases than the units on the current model (shown below). At the rear, the D-pillar is completely new. There are also new tail lights and a new wheel pattern.
The changes inside are just as dramatic, with the center stack mostly revised and a large display screen situated at the top. We’re also expecting the latest Lexus Safety System+ suite of electronic driver aids to be part of the update.
This should be the last round of updates for the Land Cruiser and LX 570 before a complete redesign in the next two to three years.
