What is the best Lexus for snow?
I’ve always been loyal to Lexus, and I’m in the market for a new car. However, I’m moving to Syracuse, so the car I choose has to be able to handle wintery conditions. What is the best Lexus for snow?

You’re wise to consider the climate where you’re moving! Fortunately, there are a few Lexus SUVs that handle well in the snow. SUVs have higher ground clearance, more weight, and a taller center of gravity, which makes them ideal for driving in the snow. They’ve also got an all-wheel drive that’s optimized for driving in wintery conditions.
As for the best Lexus, we’d have to say the Lexus LX is a fantastic choice. Consumer Reports gives it a 7.0/10 score on its “Best SUV for Snow” list.
In addition to all-wheel drive, this SUV has a Multi-Terrain Select system with a “Deep Snow” option. The LX also has Active Height Control suspension, so you can raise the vehicle to get even more ground clearance—a great option if you’re driving in deep snow.
You can’t go wrong with any Lexus SUV in the snow, so we’ll give the Lexus GX, NX, and RX honorable mentions!
After you make your choice, don’t forget to shop for snow tires and snow chains. Then, check that you’ve got the car insurance coverage you need, and you’re all set for winter driving!
