On June 12, Lexus officially launched the new generation of the Lexus NX online, which is based on the Toyota TNGA architecture and features significant changes to both the exterior and interior compared to the current model. It is worth mentioning that the new vehicle will also be the first Lexus model to be equipped with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, further accelerating the electrification process of the brand and adapting to the current changes and development of automobiles.
In terms of appearance, the new generation of Lexus NX is built with the latest design concept and offers two design styles, the regular version and the F Sport. Specifically, the regular version still adopts the family's signature spindle grille design, which is filled with black bars and the entire grille is very flat and nearly vertical. The new shape of the headlights is outlined by sharp lines, with arrow-shaped daytime running lights, further enhancing the sharp effect. In addition, the fog lamp area has a very three-dimensional shape and is wrapped by a "C" shape trim on the outer edge, in which the round fog lamps are located.
On the other hand, the grille of the F Sport version is decorated with a black diamond-shaped mesh structure, and the air deflector in the fog lamp area is larger in size, making it look even more sporty.
On the side, the roof of the new generation Lexus NX has a very smooth curved design, with the rising window line between the C and D pillars, making the overall look very dynamic, while the segmented waistline is used on the body, and the overall shape is like a three-dimensional cut. In addition, the front and rear wheelheads are slightly protruding, with a bit of a wide-body effect. The new car's wheel specifications have also been improved, and will be provided with 18-inch and 20-inch wheels according to different configurations, while the wheels on the current model are only 17-inch and 18-inch.
In terms of body dimensions, thanks to the empowerment of the TNGA architecture, the new generation Lexus NX has a length, width and height of 4660/1865/1640mm and a wheelbase of 2690mm, with the exception of the body height, the rest of the car is larger than the current model on sale. For reference, the length, width and height of the current Lexus NX are 4640/1845/1645mm and the wheelbase is 2660mm.
At the rear, the new car adopts the popular through-tail lamp design, and the left and right sides of the lamp cavity also have an "L" type lamp belt, which is expected to be very recognizable when lit. Another major change at the rear of the car is the replacement of the traditional logo with the "LEXUS" English brand logo. In addition, the new rear surround is also equipped with folded corner imitation deflector holes on both sides, echoing the front. As for the bottom decorations, they are adjusted according to the different style versions, with the F Sport model adding a running chrome strip for a more sporty feel.
