Some details about the all-new 2022 Lexus NX were revealed earlier in the year when road tests began on the model.

Camouflaged crossovers that appeared on test trials confirmed that the proportions of the new body will remain the same, and that the emphasis will be on changing its «plastic».

The novelty will definitely receive new bumpers and modified optics, and the designers, as expected, tried to hide the rest of the change with the help of camouflage.

But, something clearly did not go according to plan, and more than six months before the official premiere, detailed photos of the second-generation NX SUV appeared on the Web.

Despite the fact that the source of the «leak» tried to hastily remove them, these photos quickly spread across numerous automotive Internet publications.

2nd generation overview

The compact premium SUV Lexus NX has been produced since 2014, and in 2022 the model is preparing to change its generation for the first time.

The concept remains: the branded «hourglass» still flaunts on the front end, but the filling of the radiator grille will be completely different.

Instead of horizontal jumpers, a lot of vertical elements will appear.
The bumper will receive several original openings and aerodynamic planes, and the front optics will get rid of the «arrows» of the running lights.

The shape of the hood and sidewalls of the new body, up to the shape of the wheel arches, will remain the same.

At the stern, the new bumper will be decorated with a new false diffuser, the lights will receive different graphics, and the aggressive design of the rear end will be given by folds-holes designed to divert air from the rear wheels.

A place for wireless charging will be provided on the central tunnel, a separate unit will be responsible for switching transmission modes, while the second half will be occupied by cup holders.

Door cards, a multifunction steering wheel and a digital dashboard will be completely new in the Japanese SUV. The latter will be hidden in a recess and covered with a stylish visor, where the head-up display will «hide».
