Refreshed 2018 Lexus NX Bows in Shanghai with a Sharper Look, Enhanced Performance
• New look is an evolution of the NX’s sporty, dynamic styling
• Offers sharper handling performance, with smoother overall ride
• Lexus Safety System + now standard equipment
SHANGHAI – April 19, 2017 – When the Lexus NX was introduced in 2014, it offered crossover-luxury-vehicle customers exactly what they had long been desiring: a stylish and spacious compact with exciting driving dynamics and excellent fuel efficiency. But not even Lexus could have predicted that it would become a worldwide sensation, outperforming sales forecasts in every one of its markets around the world—including North America, Europe and China. For the 2018 model, Lexus intends to keep the proverbial wheel rolling with a refreshed model introduced today at the Shanghai Motor Show.
Bold New Exterior Styling Refinements
For the 2018 NX, the entire front fascia of the new NX has been refreshed, with the upper portion of the grille and the front bumpers redesigned to more fluidly blend into the hood and front doors, resulting in a sleeker overall shape and excellent aerodynamics. The new NX’s available headlamps with triple projectors are similar to those equipped on the LC luxury coupe and impart the car with a sportier look. Also of note, satin and smoked chrome trim pieces have been applied to the grille treatment in addition to new vertical elements added to the grille’s inner portion.
