2021/22 Lexus NX

These Japanese illustrations show us what the next generation Lexus NX could look like.

And, it does look a lot like the RAV-4 based new Toyota Harrier. Except, even a bit cleaner.
It looks liek Lexus will have simpler cleaner designs for its next generations. Which is a good thing.
(They already cleaned up the RX a bit for 2020)

The current NX design is quite busy, and almost weird. Something like this would be much classier and more upscale.

I don’t think that’s supposed to be the NX. Looks very much like the production LQ flagship, based on the LF-1 Limitless concept: https://www.netcarshow.com/lexus/2018-lf-1_limitless_concept/

I think you are right. It looks like it is RWD based as well.

This is way too upscale for the lowly NX.

Burlapp, how can you tell by looking at it that its RWD?

This looks like a mashup of a Mazda and a Jaguar. Not very original.

Fart, usually the distance between the forward cut of the front door and the front wheel opening is a visual indicator. On FWD cars the wheel opening is closer to the door, on RWD cars it’s further away. The new Volvos (in particular their S sedans and V wagons) are a noticeable exception. They’re FWD but look RWD due to their transverse-mounted inline 4 and creative platform engineering. Still, the possibility of a RWD NX is highly unlikely. That it will be FWD, derivative and sport a ghastly nose is a good bet.

It is an old rendering for the LQ (LF1 LIMITLESS concept)

Looks like a Jaguar crossover!

This is just a render for the upcoming LQ-F.. I mean it even has the F badge and wheels and stacked exhaust.

There is no Lexus LQ. It's a stupid rumor from the Toyota trademark of LQ filed in May 2018.

That's just really a Toyota brand concept shown at Tokyo Motor Show last year.
