Leaked picture of the production Lexus NX



During a presentation earlier this month, Toyota CEO Jim Lentz mauy have given the world a peak at the Lexus NX in its production form. Lentz briefly showed an image of a toned down version of the LF-NX concept that was on display in Frankfurt last September. The spindle grille has been toned down a bit and some of those really intense contours seem to have been smoothed out a it, but the vehicle has kept the same silhouette.

"We don't want to copy BMW and we are certainly not chasing BMW and Mercedes volumes. Our focus is to keep the brand very individual," explained Richard Balshaw, the director of Lexus' British arm.

What do you guys think? Has it lost some of its mojo, or has it just become more mainstream?

I love everything about it aside from the fog lights. If it was up to me I would black out the chrome ring around it.

I dont mind it one bit. I especially like that they kept the aggressive rear fenders and incorporated IS style headlamps. I think we all knew there was no way the concept could transition to production, this is an excellent compromise IMO

Looks too much like a Lexus GX

It looks too much like the cross between a GX and an IS. The headlights straight from the IS and the grill is definitely from the GX470. They should have stuck with the prototype!! This is definitely a down-grade from the RX450H. Hopefully the interior looks better.

I don't want the front grille to have those horizontal bars. i want the honeycomb pattern that was in the concept. I wonder if they are keeping the taillights from the concept though. Those were also quite distinctive.

I think we also need to wait for a hi res picture before we crucify the NX you can see it still has that crease coming of the front quarters into the doors and some of the shadows seem to indicate there is more subtlety hiding than this picture can show us...

I would be surprised if the front grille was NOT spindle considering all the new lexuses have them
