Editor's Overview

The 2017 Lexus GX 460 luxury SUV is jam-packed with Lexus’ best amenities, safety features and technology, yet unlike many of its rivals, this SUV can actually tackle the toughest of off-road obstacles. However, the same chassis and suspension can’t deliver the kind of car-like ride and handling found with the Audi Q7 or Mercedes-Benz GLS.

Its comfortable seats are built to prevent backaches caused by long driving hrs.

The Lexus gx 460 2017 model has the best features, it is a very spacey and comfortable car ideal for family trips. It has a smooth drive and wonderful performance. It is very reliable and I have not had any issues with it since we got it, I use it for my daily activities, drive the kids to school, do my shopping and every other errands I need to run. I would say to and for on a daily basis it run's over 30 miles daily.

Decent mid sized vehicle that needs more of a luxury feel.

This is an okay mid sized vehicle. It has a third row seat that is not very easily accessible nor comfortable. It is not as smooth to drive versus the other Lexus vehicles I have owned. The features are great, such as heated front and back seats. Also air conditioned front seats. The navigation screen could have better features.

- Emilie H

Far and away the best car I've ever owned

I absolutely love driving this car. The engine has more than enough power and it runs quiet and extremely smooth. It's the best handling car that I've ever driven. On top of all that it's also a great looking car both inside and out. I wish it had come with a little nicer radio but that's really my only complaint about the car
