A start-to-end with the that allow your model to display an image more urban, modern and elegant.

The new Lexus NX 2018 is now a reality and very soon will be available at dealerships. Although a priori seems to have no changes of draft, all changes made are sufficient to “update” the NX while we wait for the development of a new generation. In any case, with this update Lexus makes it clear that it will seek to extend its commercial life as much as possible.

Aesthetically, the major new developments are concentrated in the front, behind and in a new set of “shoes”. Focusing our gaze on the front of the new Lexus NX 2018, it jumps to the view of a grille revised headlights, redesigned and features LED lights for daytime running.

To all this we must add the new set of alloy wheels of 18 inches that is in addition to the range currently available.

Leaving to one side the outside, and taking a look at the images of the passenger compartment, we see that Lexus has worked on improving the finishes and finials to convey a feeling more luxurious. The screen present in a central position on the dashboard increases its size going from 7 to 10.3 inches. The analog clock has also been redesigned and restructured some controls.

Other significant changes are the increase the size of the tray wireless charger for smartphones or the new position of the USB ports.
