Exact details on the new RX line aren’t clear yet, but we know from looking at the new crossover that, as is the same with other updated Lexus vehicles, it will sport the face-lifted front end first shown during the company’s first Superbowl Ad. That updated grille borrows heavily from the radically different front fascia originally seen in the LF-LC concept.
Opposing Lexus “L’s” form the new pinched and refreshed front-end look that other cars including the GS sedan have adopted.
Otherwise, the CUV still looks very much like its predecessor with the same body shape and recognizable styling that set it apart as a Lexus from other Japanese car-based platforms like the Acura MDX.
We’ll bring you more details with the official release, for now browse our gallery.

Now, a new block of photos has been released of the RX 450h, 350, and 450h F Sport and show off the full SUV.
Debuting with the RX 450h hybrid and gas powered RX 350 will be the first sport tuned Lexus SUV: the RX 450h F Sport. Details aren’t available on the 450h F Sport, but we expect it will have a lot in common with the GS F Sport line.
The face lifted RX seems to use much of the design language found on the LF-LC concept that debuted last January in Detroit, the most striking similarity being the grill design. The nose is the most prominent feature on the RX SUV line, thought the wheels and headlights were also refreshed.
