I dont mind that at all. Although it seems they left the rear quarters unchanged and grafted the leaked front end on. Its close but theres too much dichotomy between the soft-ish front end and the jagged rear...

i think it looks really good. Now I would like to see it in one body color with no black lower parts and a better looking spindle grille.

Looks like a toned down RX

So much for the NX concept.. Man lexus dissapoints with concepts..
The NX concept was just a design exercise. I think the point of these design exercises is to show design cues and features that will make it to production, that's all, not the whole thing.

but its more toned down than a RX.

Looking at the concept I thought they were going for a sport style theme. The renderings look so bland.. They could almost be Toyotas.

They could also be wrong about the vehicle they spotted.
side profile looks too plain but it could just be the camo is doing it's job at hiding body lines

its certainly possible, but you cant mistake that those wide body arches are in no way the same...

I know that lexus likes to go out there when it comes to concepts but on the NX it seems like they went out there as usual but finished off with such an ordinary product it could pass as a toyota lol.

The back of it looks more angular and interesting like the concept, but that is the part of the NX that wasn't shown in the leaked shot, so how much does that really tell us. I think most people will be disappointed that the front of the NX looks so round given the sharp and angular design of the concept.

Do you think that the NX will stand a chance against the competition if it tones down the concept design this much.

I dont doubt the ability of the NX to succeed. The RX doesnt have particularly knock your socks off styling sales either and is still the top selling luxury SUV out there.

If you want a clue as to what will happen with the production NX, just look at the transition the LF-LC underwent to become the RC coupe...

it boggles me how a NX rendering could have made it onto a lexus presentation unless it was done by lexus

and if that is the case


it really does look kind of like a rav4
