    Already revealed overseas, the new NX carries forward the overall profile of the previous-gen SUV, but comes with a sharper look that includes single-piece headlamps (which replace the split units from before), a larger version of the company’s ‘spindle’ grille, new bumpers, a longer hood, and all-new LED tail-lamps that are now connected by a light bar.
    On the inside, it gets fresh interior design replete with a new 9.0-inch touchscreen (or a 14-inch unit, depending on the variant). Lexus has also done away with much of the switchgear in the central console, including the touchpad from before. A digital instrument cluster and a new steering wheel are also part of the package.
