In keeping with Lexus’s latest L-finesse design theme, which made its in-the-metal debut on the latest IS sedan, the LF-NX’s body is sharp and angular. It almost could be called brutal, and we think it looks rather cool. The hunkered-down profile and alert stance will seem familiar to anyone who’s seen a Mazda CX-5, but Lexus makes the vehicle its own. The brand’s signature spindle grille dominates the front end, which also features a shapely domed hood and ultra-thin headlights. The same Nike swoosh–emulating LED running lights that adorn the IS also are present here, and stand apart from the main headlight units. The front and rear fenders are squared off and bulge out from the body, and the back of the rear blisters are left open—presumably to help tackle the prodigious cooling needs of a crossover.
