Supercapicitor hybrid possibly. Hydrogen...maybe in some parts of the world. Probably just Japan. And there's nothing emotion evoking with those rendered pics about the next gen LS.

In other words, its too heavy and lacks low end punch. Jeremy Clarkson and the stig said the same thing about the IS-F when they tested it.

I don't understand the 3.5L V6. It will probably have a bit more hp but less torque than the 2.7L Turbo 4 and cant tow as much as the 2.7L. More refinement perhaps?

Don't expect to get 40mpg in the NX as you would in the Camry or Avalon or ES. Poorer aerodynamics, bigger and heavier car add in 4WD, the little engine has to work that much hard. Its the same...

+1. The new RX will leapfrog the NX just like the NX should leapfrog the current RX. If Lexus doesn't, it's competitors will.

I agree the NX is not an upgrade over the RX, but being a brand new design and 4 to 5 years newer, I certainly expect it to improve on the NVH front. When the new RX comes out, it should leapfrog...

I don't see why this would dilute the Lexus brand. I think this looks great and will only force Lexus to continuously improve on their designs instead of resting on their laurels.
