According to the automaker: “The LF-NX delivers a mix of power and economy while being tuned for SUV performance.” It has an evolution of the automaker’s “L-finesse” design language with highly sculpted exterior panels and a low and powerful stance.

HUGE GRILLE, SLEEK INTERIOR


The front is dominated by an enlarged version of the signature Lexus’ spindle grille. As the automaker says: "In profile, the LF-NX features a pronounced diamond-shaped belt line, while the glasshouse creates a coupe-like silhouette. Rounding out the profile are muscular black-trimmed wheel arches.”

The facia is divided into an upper display zone and lower operation zone and carries the automaker’s next-generation technology such as touch-sensitive electrostatic switches and a new touchpad design.

The interior's metallic surfaces are complemented by yellow and  black leather upholstery with contrast stitching and blue lighting.
