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.

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

Not sure I really care much about the exterior changes. The headlights look more like the Rav4, IMO, and the rest of it is pretty static. I also feel like the spindle is a bit too big at this point.

Bigger infotainment screen is very nice, but I wish they'd done more to spruce up the interior like the GLC.

With that said, Lexus can barely keep them in stock, so maybe they don't need to change much at all!

I'm pretty happy with the exterior changes, in particular for North America the updated non F Sport grill without the overbite that I really disliked.

Overbite is about the only way to put it -- didn't care for the standard NX one bit. That said, I'm not a huge fan of the F SPORT refresh, I see too much RC F and it's not a great fit.

Excellent update. I can't wait to see it here in Canada and see what colours it will be available in along with any new interior colours. I'm hoping for a good December to remember sale.
