All LX models boast “three-dimensional” headlights with double inner lenses for more visual depth, while muscular wheel arches and narrowing quarter pillars add a modern look and feel. The rear boasts the redesigned ‘LEXUS’ script first shown on the NX, along with new combination lamps with an L-shape that matches that of the headlights.
As for safety, you get Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, offering forward collision detection with automatic emergency braking and detection of both pedestrians and cyclists. This has been enhanced to expand the response range, even in low light. Other features include emergency steering assist, full-speed dynamic cruise control (from 30 mph up), lane keep assist, auto high beams, and traffic sign recognition.
The new LX looks like a powerhouse of all the luxury and tech you could ever hope for, but we’ll give our full verdict once we drive it. If you want to get behind the wheel, it arrives in US dealers in the first quarter of 2022.
