This will be interesting to see and even more interesting to hear the reviews.

BUMP! Your post is newer than the other one. Maybe someone can merge the two?

Thanks for the photos, modernx! That first one of the 450h F Sport front end is the money shot for me. I want it @ 1920x1080 (in Riviera Red!) for my wallpaper.

Now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the 450h F Sport is slated for release in the North American market (unlike GS450 which will have neither AWD nor F Sport in NA this year).

Yeah, that's it.

Lexus badge was removed just for the US, while Europe and Asia still have them.

Looking *really* closely at the pictures, I noticed that there are more parking sensors in the front of the RX now - a total of 4 now.

Notice the two sensors on either side of the licence plates at the very front, and a sensor towards the bottom on the side (4th pic down).

A very nice improvement

I like parking sensors but you need they much more for a long car a few inches off the ground than a a short high SUV.
