Lexus recently made its way into the Indian market with three models - the EX 300h, the RX 450h and its flagship model, the LX 450d. The Lexus LX 450d is the only vehicle in its Indian portfolio that doesn't feature a hybrid powertrain. Instead, it gets a 4.5-litre, V8 turbo-diesel which produces 260PS and 650Nm. It goes up against the SUVs like the Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover LWB Autobiography. Here's our image gallery from the first drive event in Ootacamund.

The interior design has quite an old school approach, but that's not a bad thing at all. The analogue clock and shape of the AC vents remind you of old school SUVs. The wood finish is impeccable. 19-speaker Mike Levinson belts out crisp and clear audio. One of the best we've experienced.The interior has quite an old-school approach, but that's not a bad thing at all. The analogue clock and shape of the AC vents remind you of old-school SUVs.

The perforated leather seats are big and comfy.  The leather used in fact one of the best we've seen in luxury cars in India.

LX 450d (16)The Lexus LX 450d's instrument cluster is quite large and offers quite a bit of information. Notice the ammeter and oil temperature gauge - we don't see them too often these days
