From the front side, the second generation Lexus NX gets much bigger air dams with integrated fog lamps for aggressive looks, this is further complemented with the use of sleek headlamps with integrated DRLs. However, the centre stage at the front is still carried by the large ‘Spindle' grille.

Moving on to the sides, the longer bonnet helps the car look more premium and well proportioned, while the sharp new creases help the second-generation NX to differentiate itself from the previous version.

It is at the rear where the new second-generation Lexus NX looks the most different to its predecessor with completely different tail lamps that are connected by an LED stoplight. This new design treatment makes the second-generation NX looks properly modern and catchy. The Lexus badge has also been replaced with a gapping set of alphabets that spells ‘LEXUS'.

Like the exterior, the interior is also thoroughly redesigned yet looks more evolutionary than revolutionary. This is evident from how the large 14-inch touchscreen infotainment system gels with the overall cabin rather than taking the spotlight.
