Photo: Updated 2018 Lexus NX F SPORT on Public Roads

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?)
