Lexus NX hails evolution of the brand's design language


The new Lexus NX gets an interior overhaul based on the Tazuna design concept, while the exterior has some fresh details too

The first in a flurry of imminent launches, Lexus has unveiled its new NX. The company says that the new compact SUV introduces the next generation of its design language, and will be available in both hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variants. 

Based on Toyota’s GA-K platform (which is also used for the Lexus ES and Toyota RAV4), the new NX appears similar to its predecessor when glancing at the exterior. The shape retains its neat and tidiness, while the bodywork gets a familiar angular treatment. At the front, the giant spindle grille dominates, accentuated by the slitted headlamps and vertical air intakes.
