Default Refreshed 2018 Lexus NX



What does everyone think? The current design is nice, and this is a nice update to it.

Its okay. The F-Sport doesn't look all too different. Larger vents at the bumper, and newer styled spindle grille. The headlights I guess are okay. I still prefer my triple beam style. I hope with the refresh, Lexus will make the car tighter and less susceptible to rattles. Especially the subwoofer location.

Are the changes just to the front end or do we know any more yet? Thanks for posting.

Great information, thank you.

Not enough to have me ready to trade in or anything but good to see it's stepped up its game.

Is Lexus dropping the "t" designation off of all their turbo'd cars? Seems to be the case with this name chance.

That is a major improvement in many areas. Can't wait to see what the price difference is between a 2017 NX200t and a 2018 NX300. Any guesses?

I like the name change as a lover of the RX300 models.

I also like my 2015 triple beams better, but that's about all that I like better.

Another video.

A larger nav screen is always a nice addition. The video below shows google maps which is weird since it doesn't look like android auto. And lastly, the new horizontal slat spindle grill is a HUGE upgrade over the current beak

Nice video! Showed the subtle interior upgrades like bigger screen and more fined buttons and *****. Hopefully they added ventilated seats for the F-sport (US-spec)!

Kinda weird to change the NX200t to NX300 without any changes in output for the engine. I hate it when the number behind the model name doesn't mean anything...was hoping Lexus wouldn't follow this trend.

Some pics of the rear. Nice, sleeker looking tail lights.

The photos from my post above taken from the video of a 2018 FSport shows heated and cooled seats.

Not bad.. kinda has the same evolution path of the Scion FR-S to Toyota 86, from cuter/sleek to more aggro.. I would like dials for HVAC controls tho.. easier to turn a dials to the correct temp, but maybe i'm old school.. Love that new screen and turn sigs.. but still no DIGITAL CLOCK??

I wonder whether or not North America will get the NX with these new features and changes.
