The headlight became one slick shape at the front with nothing jutting out from the sides. Almost similar to the RC headlights. There also seems to be some (fake?) side intakes next to the grille as well with a sharp foglight below it. The grille itself is also more refined, looking a lot less plastered on. I feel the next RX would nail the spindle design.I can't even tell how the front end has changed, but for some reason it looks better to me, and the rear taillight change is welcome, just because I'm getting sick of seeing so many identical RXs on the road.
The touchscreen is also a major step in the right direction, with the addition of Apple CarPlay and presumably also Android Auto.
also, at 0:24 in the video they used footage of the pre-facelift RX lol...
My guess is the next gen RX will have the continuous red taillights across the entire tailgate like the UX. First the LF-1 Limitless concept and then the UX has it. Only a matter of time before the next gen NX and RX will too.Updates look pretty good. Loving the mesh grilles for the non-FSport models that Lexus is doing now. I'm also glad they didn't slap a continuous taillight on it even though there was an article a while ago where Lexus said they were going to start following that trend.
But yes, like everyone else, I also see more minivan vibes in the RXL...
when it comes to touchscreen, it has been moved to front, considerably, compared to the old model.The front end closely resembles the NX. The red NuLux F-Sport seats also look very similar to the NX version.
Touchscreen is great but the screen is too far away for it to be useful IMO.
yeah... and in general, maybe first european TMC vehicle with carplay? European system lags a lot compared to the US one, and looks worse on Toyota's too... I know Rav4 salesmen were telling everyone that Android Auto support is coming by the end of the year to existing vehicles.Here in US, Sequoia/Tacoma/4Runner/Tundra are first to have Android Auto, but RX may well be first TMC vehicle to have it in Europe.
