I'm just glad to see that it takes after the RC as opposed to the IS.

But geezus, I think it's got way too many different creases going on all over the place.

I like the extreme styling in what is usually such a bland segment. Suburban America is going to be a lot more interesting with these around.

It's nice to see that the Mazda CX-5 now comes with a hybrid powertrain and Lexus badges.

Too bad some idiot drew a pair of Nike swooshes on the front bumper... probably the dude in the red polo shirt... what a tool.

Well I personally like it. I'm a 20 something professional so Lexus hit their brief. But why does the interior have a stand up screen, I'm so over them.

It's a weird mix of a RAV4, an RX and the RC.
To me, I HATE the nike swoosh, the lower aluminum ground effects trim looks like a parking lot nightmare and the taillights stick out too much. Too bad, cause the overall shape of the car is pretty.

I actually like it quite a bit. It's nicely toned down from the concept but still has plenty of neat details; I particularly like the taillights and, oddly, the door handles, which unlike most Toyotas and Lexi have had some thought put into them. The interior looks good too, incorporating the "spindle" shape into the center stack in an interesting touch, and well-executed.

I was going to say I thought the grille should be toned down but it appears I was looking at the F-Sport; the regular NX does dial things back a bit.

Note to Lexus designers: Do less drugs.

Single worst new car design to come out of a major manufacturer in quite some time. It makes the Jeep Cherokee look like a masterpiece. Shame on Lexus.

Agggggg I must me blind or something, but I just love this thing. It's alien and unique and a real stand out in the boring pack of luxury crossovers. In particular, I like how Lexus is actually making sharp creases and points with the details. There's less dulling/rounding off in the head and tail lights. The shape and proportions are spot on too. I don't see any RAV-4 in it (and if you do, you're grasping at straws IMO), but the back does have a really really light CX-5 feel (C-pillar + rear window). The concept had an overabundance of lines and body creases, but Lexus tones that down sensibly. The main line along the sill remains prominent and a secondary one pulls from the tail light down like with the IS.

Maybe Lexus designers are on crack, but it's sure better than the sedatives the folks over at BMW and Audi are taking.
