For better protection of the passenger compartment, the LR4 uses safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment. It provides extra impact protection and a sturdy mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. The LX 570 uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

Both the LR4 and the LX 570 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available collision warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

On the EPA test cycle the LR4 gets better fuel mileage than the LX 570 with its standard engine (15 city/19 hwy vs. 13 city/18 hwy).

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the LR4’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The LX 570 doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

For superior ride and handling, the Land Rover LR4 has fully independent front and rear suspensions. An independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort. The Lexus LX 570 has a solid rear axle, with a non-independent rear suspension.

The LR4 has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The LX 570’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The front and rear suspension of the LR4 uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the LX 570, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the LR4’s wheelbase is 1.4 inches longer than on the LX 570 (113.6 inches vs. 112.2 inches).

For better maneuverability, the LR4’s turning circle is 1.1 feet tighter than the LX 570’s (37.6 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the LR4 has a greater minimum ground clearance than the LX 570 (9.4 vs. 8.9 inches), allowing the LR4 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Land Rover LR4 may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 350 pounds less than the Lexus LX 570.

The LR4 is 9.3 inches shorter than the LX 570, making the LR4 easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Unibody construction makes the LR4’s chassis much stiffer, which contributes to better handling, and enables softer springs to be used for a better ride. Unibody construction’s stiffness also contributes to better durability and less body squeaks and rattles. The LX 570 doesn’t use unibody construction, but a body-on-frame design.

The power windows standard on both the LR4 and the LX 570 have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the LR4 is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The LX 570 prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the LR4 to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The LX 570 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

The LR4’s power mirror controls are mounted on the door for easy access. The LX 570’s power mirror controls are on the dash, hidden behind the steering wheel, where they are awkward to manipulate.
