The most prominent exterior change center around the front of the vehicle, with the LX getting the new Spindle Grille design along with LED daytime running lights and a new bumper.
Other exterior changes include:
- New 20″ alloy wheel design
- Side mirror turn signals
- Wider bodyside moldings
- Revised tail lamps
- New rear bumper
- Nebula Gray Pearl and Satin Cashmere Metallic replace Twilight Gray Metallic and Golden Almond Metallic
The interior has also been reworked:
The instrument panel has been redesigned, and now includes a new color information display between the dials. There’s also a dark chrome finish around center console and chrome highlights above the glovebox. More functional interior improvements include driver-side Easy Access (which retracts the front seat and steering wheel during entry and exit), and a 120-volt power outlet added for the middle row.
I’ll have live photos for you tomorrow from the auto show floor, but judging from these photos, the Spindle grille really scales well with the super-sized LX — I would have liked to see more changes to the interior, but just simplifying the number of buttons on the center console was a step in the right direction. and I like the look of the new instrument panel.
