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'm fine with running boards as an option. I dislike the fixed ones that are integrated into the bodywork.

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

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)

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.

the GV80 is a fake Bentley with a chicken wire aCuRa grill just like the 300c was a fake Bentley, I agree that interior is posh and very well done as well.

I see the LX taking a different direction and I don’t except everyone to oooooh and ahhhh. Having played with it I’ll say more after 12:30 :)

Prepare your bodies.

also FYI genesis and Hyundai/Kia are brutalizing their capital and operational efficiencies with those interiors and designs. The headlight designs on the new Hyundais are insanely expensive and I can’t think justifiable for those vehicles. I wouldn’t be surprised if future updates are more incremental.

just like how the Nissan GTR is still thought of by most people as an affordable supercar killer, despite having gone up in price and down in relative value proposition. It’s mental anchoring. Most people rarely update their mental associations around stuff they aren’t super attuned to.
