Very well done, though this is a marketing pic.

I'm very surprised to see a "waterfall" center stack and not the horizontal ones..

Not sure if anything else in this class offers red or anything remotely this interesting. Wow.

something about the proportions seems off to me, and the front 'snout' is yuuuuge. also not a fan of the black wheel arch coverings.

Lexus obviously doesn't appeal to you so not surprising.

From 2IS to 3IS, some sacrifice is made in the interior material but gaining more technology
integration. This trend can be seen in NX as well despite this is the 1st gen model.

Overall, the NX looks very stylish. It will be interesting to see its handling and performance and how it is compared to its rival in the segment.

I think (hope) it's just the angle of the shot that makes the nose look like it's sticking out so far.

Agree, but for the IS (and NX) price point, the vehicles have competitive materials.

Not digging the metal polished F-Sport wheels and blackout trim all over. I preferred the prior leaked photo's graphite wheels. Perhaps it's the contrast with the Sonic White paint. I am liking the Atomic Silver (or what appears to be) F-Sport though. I have a feeling the NX will be best in the medium to darker colors. Overall, still a winner.

Is that extra padded layer on the dash in the 300h there for the HUD? It's not there on the F-Sport's interior...

Well when the 2016 RX debuts we'll see if they go the "waterfall" route or continue the horizontal layers/recessed dash

Love it, looks great in the pictures and I will agree with some current sentiment, I'm not liking the black fender arches and side mirrors, I really don't understand it.

Regardless, this car will sell sell sell.


It's pretty crazy how Lexus has been making cars that I personally can imagine myself driving in. This is what makes people want to buy a car.

Lexus absolutely killed it....KILLED it...I think they will sell 4-5k of these a month pretty easily.

Automatic parking brake!! RX and GX don't have that and the LX is still a hand brake. Also notice there is a Hold button, such a useful feature available on the GS and LS.

Yes, it is true. With the existing pricing, 3IS has very competitive materials for the cabin. If NX is priced competitively, it should be okay.

I like that. It helps no occasional bumping into the foot brake
