Lexus is sticking to its guns when it comes to the spindle design. The outgoing model also has the famous spindle grille, but that design DNA has now been applied to the entire Lexus RX exterior.
You’ll notice the sculpted, seamless grille, which incorporates the LED headlights up front. At the rear, you can see new design lines that kink slightly inward, also creating a spindle-like surface.
Thanks to the new platform, the RX has a lower center of gravity, and Lexus wanted to use it as a design element, with a wider, lower-down stance accentuated by 19-inch alloy wheels.
Our favorite design feature is the new L-shaped light bar lamp with lenses that wrap around the sides of the body. Land Rover uses the same design tactic on the new Range Rover Sport to give the car a wider, sportier stance.
There will be ten available Lexus RX colors: Ultra White, Eminent White Pearl, Nebula Gray Pearl, Iridium, Caviar, Matador Red Mica, Copper Crest, Nori Green Pearl, Nightfall Mica, and Grecian Water.
