Rendered: The Next-Generation Lexus RX Crossover


Youtube channel AutoYa has taken a guess at the next-generation Lexus RX, a vehicle rarely ever covered in the car rendering business.

As to be expected, they’ve used the current Toyota Venza as the starting point — the Venza is a rebadge of the Japanese market Toyota Harrier, which in turn used to be a rebadged version of the Lexus RX.

Even so, the grille is too small.

Yuck...Lexus would never F-up the RX like that. What would happen if The Pontiac Aztec and Nissan Murano had a ******* child: That Rendering.

And throw in a little front grille DNA from a Mazda CX.

Crazy how there are zero spy shots of the next generation RX despite us getting it exactly in a year (October 2022).

In fact, it seems like October 2022 is going to be a big month for Toyota and Lexus.
One could hope for a February surprise like we had with the NX ... LOL

Wow that first render is awful, and the 2nd...well it seems to have lost it's identity.

Not sure about LF-1/LF-Z influence... Recent releases, NX and LX, are clearly evolutionary, but I find them successful. I prefer the RX continues this way, the evolutionary approach rather than look like a FWD LF-1 or LF-Z and botch the whole thing up.

Mag-X is showing a different front end:

It seems more plausible, it's more like the NX.

Hah! I think Lexus (and Toyota) will be sworn to secrecy after what happened several months ago. The good news is that the Toyota product that will be released on October of next year will genuinely make all enthusiasts beaming with joy. :^)

I think the Toyotaring is pretty busy at these times with the testing that's going on.

I'll shut up now.

The SUVs are well under everyone's expectation, I'm more curious if the rumored LC FSP / TTv8 is still alive.

It has to keep its own identity...not a cross between 2 or 3 other makers, like in some of the renderings I've been seeing.

BestCar is also going in a similar design to MAG-X (more NX-like):

is this RX or TX. Its interesting that Lexus will keep the weird prolonged rear end for the 5 seater RX. That means Lexus is listening to the RX-L buyers who purchased that vehicle over a RX not for the seats but for the additional cargo volume/height. That would mean the TX is gonna be a chunky beast and probably interesting in the space. X7 volume but X5 price?

Styling is always subjective and i personally like this rendering by AutoYa very much.

I am not a fan of the huge grille brigade so like the more compact and sporty look of this rendering. The current RX front aspect has long been the subject of intense debate - it is improved in the latest version but that slatted big grille when first launched i reckon cost plenty sales.
