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.

Wheels24 will have more details and specs closer to the Lexus LF-NX concept debut at Frankfurt.
