2010 Lexus RX Prototype Spotted in Germany

2010 Lexus RX Spyshot

A set of mildly-camoflagued Lexus RX prototypes have been spotted at Nürburgring in Germany, and the design is looking to be a successful merger of the current model and the LF-Xh concept shown at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

The most obvious element taken from the LF-Xh is the smoother, more flowing shape, looking lower and longer than the current model, let’s et’s compare and contrast:

I find the streamlining to be very attractive, eliminating my biggest complaint about the current RX’s styling. I think the front-end needs some reworking though. While I’m relieved the Ford Edge style grille of the LF-Xh was dropped, the resulting nose is looking rather ordinary.
