It’s quite obvious what Lexus was going for with the styling - pure and unadulterated aggression. It almost seems as if the designer only had an axe at his disposal. The front is dominated by Lexus’ signature spindle grille and angular headlamps.
At the rear, the highly articulated lamp clusters project down the full depth of the bumper, creating a sharp, aerodynamic trailing edge to the vehicle that mirrors the detailing of the front-wing design.
Lexus is presenting the LF-NX in a new brushed-metal colour that creates the impression of the car having been carved from a single piece of solid metal.
The Japanese manufacturer also says that the cabin follows a human-oriented approach. The dashboard is divided between and upper-display zone and a lower-operation zone. This enables intuitive interaction with the concept vehicle’s next-generation technology, including touch-sensitive electrostatic switches and a new touch pad Remote Touch Interface design.
It may only be a concept at the moment, but we think it’s definitely a sign of things to come. Lexus needs a mid-size crossover to take the fight to BMW’s X3 and the upcoming Mercedes GLA. It probably won’t be as radical as the car you see here, but if it’s half as aggressive as the LF-NX, it’s going to be a stunner.
