Lexus NX 2018 Update

The updated 2018 Lexus NX has been keeping a low profile — outside of the usual CGI imagery and a single photo gallery from the Shanghai Motor Show, the refreshed model has been practically invisible.

That changed with a recent Lexus USA photo tweet, which shows the new NX F SPORT out for a cruise. The previous design didn’t really need too much tweaking, and with this update Lexus managed to modernize without going overboard — I see a healthy dose of last year’s IS sedan refresh in the changes.

(Show of hands — are you considering the 2018 NX when it arrives at dealerships this fall?)

I am considering buying a new NX300 this fall/winter to replace my 2011 RX450h. A lot will depend on the trim packages available and the price of course. But I do want a smaller SUV.
The shape of the new headlight is a lot more like the Rav4, IMO, but overall, this is a nice update.

I will be getting one to replace my 2015 NX 200t 's lease that ends in MARCH.
I'd love to replace my wife's out but it doesn't even have 10,000 miles on it yet...looks good tho!!

No V6 ... Our IS reminded me how much I miss the larger engine. I'm waiting for the next-gen ES, before I trade our NX on this refresh ...
Loving the NX updates.....
