I'm fine with running boards as an option. I dislike the fixed ones that are integrated into the bodywork.i would have liked to see the integrated automatic running boards like on range rovers. They slide out when the door opens and slot under the car when it’s closed. I believe the Benz GLS and Maubacj 600 has it as well.
I have no issue with the NX interior. The sceeen just dominates things. The LX will continue a kind of minimalist theme.
I read Motor trends Nx thoughts and they don’t like the NX interior but they somehow jerk off to the rdx Interior which is as busy and Non-luxurious as anything.
I dont get it
The GV70 interior is fantastic and arguably best in class. I think only the GLC with the carbon fiber comes close then it’s the NX. The GV70 is a slightly different target being RWD based, more of an enthusiast cuv. The NX offers technology the GV70 doesn’t offer especially with hybrids and plug ins.From a design perspective, the NX is good but when you have an upstart like Genesis who is designing gorgeous interiors even in their entry level GV70, that all the car reviewers are glowing about, then Lexus has to do better. The NX is a step up from the previous generation, but it’s just not enough. It will still be a sales monster, but it’s not going to excite enthusiasts and luxury fans who wants the envelope to be pushed. With the GV80 interior and exterior design being compared to Bentley, I hope the LX reaches that or surpasses it. It needs to be flagship level like the LC is (I hope they do an all saddle interior)
