Naveen Soni, President of Lexus India, gave us some insights about upcoming launches and the company’s future intentions in India when we chatted with him on the eve of the NX350h debut. We predicted that its top-of-the-line SUV, the LX600, would be the next to arrive in India, and we can now confirm that predictions were accurate! We anticipate a slight price increase once the LX600 is released. Lexus India has formally opened reservations for the vehicle for a sum of Rs 10 lakh.

What is The Lexus LX600 ?
The Lexus LX600 is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser and has several parts in common with it. Furthermore, it serves as Lexus’ response to the Land Cruiser, albeit in a much finer and more expensive vehicle.
While the LX600 still has a basic SUV profile, it has sharper design cues than its Toyota rival, including an aggressive front end with the familiar Lexus grille.
Sharper tail lamps, a new bumper, and a full-width light bar running over the tailgate are all changes made to the rear to set it apart from the Land Cruiser.
The Lexus LX600 is supported by the GA-F platform and is available with gasoline and diesel engines all over the world. However, the sole engine available to us will be the 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo, which has a 403-bhp and a 649-Nm torque output.
The transmission used with this engine will be a 10-speed automatic. The LX600 will be available in four-seater and five-seater trims, though we are unsure of the exact kit that will be supplied.
On the dashboard of the new LX600, there are two screens: a 12.3-inch touchscreen for the multi-terrain monitor, sound controls, and navigation, and a 7-inch touchscreen for the climate control and other features.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS, BMW X7, the new Range Rover, and the Toyota Land Cruiser compete against the Lexus LX600.
The expected on-road cost is Rs 3 crore, which represents a modest price increase from the current-gen model’s ex-showroom pricing of Rs 2.32 crore.
