Default 2016 Lexus LX570 spotted in the UAE

Just when the new Toyota Land cruiser is getting ready for the Launch,The premium brand of T.M.C has imported 12 samples of the original,2016 LX570 into the United Arab Emirates.
These cars below are awaiting customs clearance at the Abudhabi Port.
Photographs from a company named "BANIYAS CARS ESTABLISHMENT" were doing rounds in the internet and the ones at the port are very similar.
Will update you all with the specifications as soon as I get hold of it from T.M.C.

Drive safe!

The LX also gets the latest Lexus design, the rear looks cool, but the front looks kind bloated like the Infiniti QX.

But not the steering....This is a full sized luxo barge, not a sportscar to have that kinda steering

It's looking nice specially the interiors. I am not a fan of the new front design of all Lexus's but since this is a big SUV, the front will probably suit this car the most.

The steering wheel looks small for a SUV this size & man look at the buttons on that steering wheel!

What's with the gear knob in the second picture? Why is it tilted towards the passenger side?!

Yeah, agree with you on that.The steering wheel is too small and unSUVish.

BTW, I also thought why the gear knob is tilted.
IMO maybe in such a wide cabin that's a more ergonomic design and easily falls in hand.
