That GX 470.. is based on LC Prado and i think that GX 470 is sold only in USDM and Canada. and comes only as a LHD.. this vehicle has become more popular than the LX 470 as it has the same engine and costs less and is a bit better perofmer in terms of fuel econ and other factors..

Default Lexus LX470/LX570's in Mumbai

Pics of a couple of Lexus LX470's around Mumbai. The white one was spotted in Navi Mumbai and the green one on the expressway. Also a black LX570 in Colaba.

The LC80 (especially) and the LC100 are much better proportioned than the ungainly LC200. The 200's front end is handsome, but its designers completely lost the plot by the time they got to the C Pillar. I absolutely hate the rear of the new Landcruiser. Zero design flair, lights are too big and it looks like one of the cheapo American minivans from the late nineties.

Ouch! Coming for a LC fan like you!

I personally prefer the Toyota version to the Lexus this time. Altho the LC200 has grown on me, wasn't a fan when it was launched.

I like the old one better. And being in Dubai, I see these everyday. And frankly, it seems to me that the old one is also more comfortable and has a better designed interior in ergonomical terms.

Thanks for the info guys. I also thought that all the Lexus in India were Land Cruisers only :(

btw are spare parts a problem for the LX470 model ? Please quote my message in your answer so I get an answer as I am looking for one.

Most Land Cruisers have been fitted with the Lexus kit in India. The easiest way to spot this is notice the emblem on the steering wheel and the alloy wheels...this is where most people leave the toyota badge. As far as i recolect original Lexus LX470's came only in Petrol engines.

Spare parts are not an issue, you can find them in the local market or then can import them. I do believe toyota dealers also service these cars.

Platinum Auto had a clean 100 series LC for sale.

I don't think it is being tested or is on carnet. Looks like a private import to me or officially imported by Toyota.
