It hasn’t been that long since the NX lineup launched outside fo Japan, however, the 2018 Lexus NX series are due for a minor tweak already that is indistinguishable to the naked eye unless you put the old next to the new.
Lexus has stated the entire front end is different and much you now; we are also scratching our heads wondering what’s new.
Upon further inspection, we noticed the headlights have a new shape with the tick-shaped LED lights underneath, and the spindle grille is also different according to Lexus.
Select models of the 2018 Lexus NX series sport different front air intakes and fog lights with the rear end playing host to revised taillights, larger chrome-tipped exhausts, underbody spoiler and a new set of 18-inch alloys to adorn each corner.
On top of the slight refresh, the NX 200t moniker has been dropped in favour for NX 300 that will grace base models of the 2018 Lexus NX series. The same four-cylinder 2-litre turbocharged motor is present controlling all four wheels.
NX 300H models retain the 2.5-litre naturally aspirated motor aided by a pair of electric motors with no tweaks to the power outputs.
2018 Lexus NX F Sport models also benefit from the mild refresh with their own unique characteristics including exclusive rims, black grille and interior trim.
Lexus has mentioned when we’ll see the 2018 Lexus NX debut, but we’d expect it to launch later this year.
