2017 Lexus NX Release Date, Specs & Info

One of the more asked for releases for the upcoming year is the 2017 Lexus NX model. This vehicle is going to be one of the newest additions that are going to come out of the Japanese automaker’s luxury production line. It is perceived as the direct answer to the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes Benz M-class. This is going to be one of the most luxurious vehicles that Lexus is producing for the next season and as such gains already a lot of attention.

The name of the car is an abbreviation which stands for Nimble Crossover. The model has been made available first time for this year but preparations are already being made for the new 2017 model. The testing are in its final phase and the expansion of the car promises to bring us even more. So if you liked the previous car you will most certainly like its 2017 version which is going to bring us even more. The luxury crossover segment is a demanding one so the NX needs to bring everything it got in order to compete with the giants from here, models such as Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, to name a few.

The newest Lexus NX design is going to be a continuation of the present model. As the look has still yet to age there are some plans which will give it a more natural expansion of the current model that are going to be given to this new one. They mean keeping the already trademark spindle grille that is a recognizable addition of every Lexus vehicle that has come out recently. The spindle grille does not keep the vehicle as a recognizable brand but also keeps it much more aggressive than it is now. As you can see from the released pictures the front side of the car is planned to remain aggressive but with some sporty elements that make it an even better addition than you would have expected to see.

Other elements that make it to the exterior design are the newly made headlights that add some LED lights, with LED elements and LED daytime running lights as well. These lights are placed directly beneath the headlights and also give a very cool nice look to the car as well. The back side has also been revised as well and the most noticeable part comes with the taillights. The added LED features there are also an innovation but the shape of the back lights is also something new for the NX car. The back side is completed with a large diffuser which has two exhaust pipes placed beneath.

Interior

The 2017 Lexus NX is going to add an advantage to the sport elements than the traditional luxurious ones that are mostly expected to appear inside the car. But the materials remain the highest quality and is something that you would have expected to see inside the luxury crossover. They went for using the most quality ones and managed to incorporate some leather materials for the seats and the steering wheel while the dashboard has some soft touch surfaces that include metallic and black piano trims.

The most part of the interior is going to be similar or the same as before, but some innovations are going to be placed inside the car and are going to start with the technology that is given inside the car. The updated software and the new infotainment system is something to be expected but we are still not sure what is the thing that is going to be added inside. As the vehicle gets closer to its release date the parts will become more familiar to us.

2016 Lexus LX 570 Release Date, Review and Specs

2016 Lexus LX 570 Release Date, Price, Review, Interior – Unlike other full-size crossovers, the new 2016 Lexus LX 570 has a firm history on its side. Based on the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser, you could be right to say that its antiquity stretches to mid ‘50s. Now, a majority of shoppers in this class should be willing to take a hit at the gas station, which is, among other reasons why we intentionally cut the LX 570 plenty of slack in the past.

However, a sizeable number of European rivals are increasingly making use of forced of both superchargers and turbochargers meant to pump up the top speed whilst ensuring a reasonable return of fuel economy.

Simply put, the LX 570’s EPA of 14 mpg when combined is outright dissapointing in its segment, and so is the lackluster 7.4 second sprint from 0-60 miles per gallon. Fortunately for 2016 year, we should expect a revamp of the figures in the right direction.

Despite the promises by Lexus to work on its previous model’s flaws, it is important for buyers to sample out other vehicles in the segment. A case in point is the Mercedes Benz GL-Class, which comes with more cargo space, roomier third row, better fuel economy, cutting-edge infotainment, quicker acceleration, bespoke interior, and a reasonable price tag. Also, the 2015 BMW X5 stands out with its powertrains, smooth driveability, cabin technology and on-road handling.

According to some credible reports, we should expect the new Lexus LX 570 2016 before the fall of this year. Also, expect the vehicle to set you back by an MSRP of $84,000 depending on the selected packages and features. The price should also be dependent on the selected trim model. There is going to be a tight race between the models that are going to come to in the segment as the added competition is the Lincoln Navigator, 2017 Cadillac Escalade and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport model.
