The previous-gen NX still looks fresh alongside newer rivals, so perhaps that explains why Lexus has taken an evolutionary approach to the new model's exterior design. The large spindle grille and slanted headlights are still there but they've been refined for the new version. The grille's U-shaped blocks create an impression of depth. At the back, the Lexus 'L' emblem has been replaced by Lexus lettering, and there is a new full-width blade combination headlamp. The base model gets 18-inch alloy wheels, while 20-inch wheels are fitted to upper trims. The F Sport adds model-specific bumpers, a mesh grille insert, and black exterior trim. A power moonroof is available.
The new Lexus NX is nearly an inch longer than the model it replaces but marginally shorter in height. Fortunately, the NX isn't a car that feels too large for easy commuting in the city. The dimensions include a length of 183.5 inches, a 105.9-inch wheelbase, a height of 65.8 inches, and a width of 73.4 inches with the mirrors folded. Ground clearance is 7.7 inches across the range.
The NX's curb weight figures vary, with base models starting at 3,660 pounds in FWD configuration, while the 450h+ tips the scales at 4,475 lbs.

There are 11 colors available for the Lexus NX but some are subject to an additional charge and some are only compatible with certain trims. No-cost shades include Redline, Atomic Silver, Nori Green Pearl, Grecian Water, Caviar, and Obsidian. All of these besides Obsidian are available on the base trim. For an additional $500, customers can spec Ultra White, Eminent White Pearl, and Cloudburst Gray; Cadmium Orange and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0 cost $595. Colors that are unique to the F Sport models are Ultra White, Obsidian, and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0. Cadmium Orange is probably the most striking shade of all, but, like some of the exterior paints, it can only be had in combination with certain interior color schemes.
