    Why is it so farking ugly?

  • Puppet H

    How ugly will the watered-down production car look like?

  • Zipman

    Will Lexus ever offer performance versions of their SUVs?

    (something like the Audi SQ5 or even BMW X5 50i)

  • BlackDynamiteOnline

    How much power will the NX200T have?

    I actually love the way it looks. I think it would be great as a power horse to compete with the BMW X6

    • Thomas

      It’s front Wheel drive only, it will have the IS300h engine, so no way it would compete With the X6 in the slightest way.

    • Jake

      It’s not a competitor for the X6 but the X1.

      • nj101

        …this thing will dig the grave for the X1

  • nj101

    Seems like lots of Toyota/Lexus haters are trolling in this site. Describing this concept as ugly is the most moronic act one can do in his life. This thing has a great silhouette and surely an eye catcher. It will make the lambo SUV looks bland and the jag’s cx-17 even more bland.
    I just wanna know if there will going to be an NX-F..

    • Thomas

      No. The silhoutte is ugly too. There isn’t a single beautiful line anywhere in this concept. And I’m a Lexus owner and I think the Third gen GS is and LS from 2006 forward are absolutely the best looking cars.

      • nj101

        Man, looks are subjective. But saying that this concept is ugly is so inappropriate. This thing is so radical and I think the shape is purposely designed. For me it looks bad ass and i know it gets mix opinions, why not just wait for the final product?
        People say that the RX is bland but its doing well despite the age. They say the new IS is ugly but doing well too. Since many people say that this concept is ugly, I think its an early complement to the upcoming success of the NX.

      • Mankind

        No. The concept is ugly. I am also an Lexus IS driver. ;)

      • Thomas

        It’s not really radical either. And it is ugly. The Citroën Cactus Concept is a radical design, it’s ugly too, but at least it is interesting.

        It took me time to get used to the first wave of L-Finesse vehicles (2006 GS, 2007 LS, 2006 IS, etc.), it took me time to get used to the spindle grille. Change is tough.

        I’m still piecing together my opinions of the LF-NX, but I know for sure it could never be called beautiful. I also wouldn’t call it ugly. The angles, the sharpness, it’s all very futuristic, very extreme, and not for everyone.

    • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

      I think you’re catching on the exact purpose of this concept. While I doubt the final production model will be as controversial, Lexus wants people to react strongly to the LF-NX — love or hate, doesn’t matter (would likely prefer love ;-).

    • Puppet H

      Lol, my favorite car is the Lexus LFA second is Supra. Jeremy Clarkson loves the LFA and even said the new Lexus designs are ugly and I never agreed with that statement until NOW seeing this NX. Now I understand why car enthusiasts call the spindle grille ugly.

  • Сафиуллина-Мохамед Ибрагимов

    I like the questions of both BD and Zipman
    Really my all time questions are 2
    the first is about the design I know that he said 95% Will be in the real deal, so
    A) will we see the flop side line or it will be straight side as all Lexus even the LFA?
    B) will this be a study for next generation RX and forthcoming TX?

    The second question is about the TX, will it be a RWD or simply a Luxurious highlander version

    • dfdf

      What by the sake of god is a TX?

      • Сафиуллина-Мохамед Ибрагимов

        The TX
        Is rumored large crossover to replace the truck based GX and compete with all the foloowing
        Porsche Cayenne
        Volkswagen Touarge
        Mercedes GL
        Infiniti JX
        Audi Q7

        I don’t believe Lexus will truly compete with any of these. By choosing to build their crossover vehicles off the very ordinary front drive platforms of camry and rav 4, they limit themselves to the point where they cant be any better.
        The only hope they would have is to develop a new chassis for their SUVs, or build one off the GS platform, I doubt either will happen. Until then Lexus SUVs will be dressed up Toyota.
        Thankfully they are creating some good cars, IS, LS , GS.

      • nj101

        Dude, TX will be built on GS’ platform.

      • Сафиуллина-Мохамед Ибрагимов

        We still hope
        No confirmation yet

        But wow, finally a CUV that share it with GS, RC, IS

  • Thomas

    When will this Madness stop and Lexus Return to perfection that was the Third gen GS and the LS of the same time? You know, L-finesse, where this has no finesse at all!

    • nj101

      oh..seems like another one who really knows nothing about car..wheres your finesse dude?

  • FooFoo

    How is it different from the production one?

    • FooFoo

      How much is the aerodynamic coefficient?
      Dimensions? Materials? Platform?

  • Mike Delorca

    This is absolutely outstanding in design – I hope not too watered down in production release necXt year. Although it will be toned down, no doubt…..LEXUS is answering the publics demand for Bold, Aggressive and Sporty Luxury. All the negative feeback is LEXUS/TOYOTA detractors that can’t stomach the fact that LEXUS is doing something very innvoative and stylish coupled with their award winning reliability,value and resale. If you criticize this look you have no idea that all of the new models released recently with the spindle grill and more aggressive design are selling at historic levels and demanding increases that are tops in the industry. Have you seen what LEXUS and TOYOTA increased in August ? More than any auto maker in the World. The industry leaders in in US and Globally. Hard to digest for those that are so rnvious….if you don’t like the product, then why do you visit the site ? I don’t consider MB and BMW as an option and I don’t take the time and effort to criticize or to bother visiting….GO LEXUS !

      Nobody is dissing on the brand, thats why we are here, we are enthusiastic about the brand. But there is a lot to hate in this concept design, looks like some origami that someone failed to finish.

  • BlackDynamiteOnline

    I expect, by the end of 2015, for the Lexus powertrains to be completely updated with turbo engines, Toyota’s new Valvematic technology, and the CVTs & 8-speed transmissions will move throughout the lineup.

    220HP for the hybrids, including the next Lexus CT
    240-250HP for the turbo-four engine
    306HP for the V6 models
    Lexus LS moves to a 400+HP 5.0 V8 in 2015.

    Write it down, take a picture of it, I don’t give a……

    • F1orce

      That sounds about right.

    • nj101

      any idea about the force-feed engine? Will it be a turbo diesel or not?

      • F1orce

        Lexus will not make a diesel.

        Petrol & Hybrid only

  • F1orce

    I never understand the bad comments about this concept.

    It looks how a concept should look. btw them headlights are simply amazing. And I hope they make it to production.

    This looks much, much better than the boring X1

  • corradoMR2

    Love the front, lights, grill and overall silhouette. Rear, yuck. Interior A+. I hope the production version keeps these details but with some softer lines and rear, and I will have one in my driveway.

  • PIT

    Wenn der LF-NX so gebaut wird, kaufe ich ihn!!! PIT

  • DARRELL

    WHEN IS THIS CAR DUE OUT? THANKS
