Re: 2016 Lexus LX spied undisguised inside and out

The NX looks nice to me from the side and rear view but that grille does not look good from the front. The predator grille looks better on the cars vs the cuv's/suv's.

The Navigator looks a lot better in person but still dated to anybody familiar with the pre-refresh.

I actually like the dramatic textured modern design of the Lexus, but what I don't like are huge overhangs and that's what you get right here.

In either case, none of these are my cup tea. The few in this segment that get the design right come from England and Germany, and that has more to do with quality and precision with balanced restrained design. Navigator isn't garish but it's extremely outdated and lacks precision.
I agree with you when you say that the best in this segment come from England and Germany: the Land Rover Range Rover and the Porsche Cayenne-VW Touareg twins are the best offering in the big luxury SUVs market.

About the Lexus design languaje, is too busy for my taste. And that grille is unpalatable for me... In general, the design of the japanese brands is not to my liking. Too many lines, complicated surfaces, overstyled details. I prefer the simplicity of the german or today american design trends.

That front end works so much less bad on cars than SUVs/CUVs. I'm going to let Sir Charles express his dismay here...

I spoke with several loyal Lexus LS owners and all have decide to go with the flow of the front grill design. They don't like the looks of it; but see no other alternative!

A friend's parents that had an '07 LS just recently purchased a '15 A8L because they don't like the spindle grille. I realize everyone's different though, and while it works for some, it doesn't for others.

Re: 2016 Lexus LX spied undisguised inside and out

hmm...
now I'm wondering, Rmc^^^

maybe Lexoid is deliberately "pushing" the fugly-extremes...as long as they meet whatever they think are adequate numbers
since
they have the built-in EASY-FIX of an attractively design frontend (cheap to change)
+
all the PENT-UP Demand for/by/of people who aren't style-blind


but No Way I'll believe that about Acura!
