From the images, it appears to feature all the contemporary Lexus design cues like the spindle grille and L-shaped LED graphics. Other details from the front are difficult to discern as the image is rather dark, akin to a teaser.

From the rear, the Lexus letterings are spelled out and there’s a light bar that runs across the width of the car, as seen in the all-new Lexus NX. To be frank, almost too similar to the NX, which leads us to suspect that this leak may be a rendering. So take this with a healthy pinch of salt.

Who’d spend more than a million Ringgit on what is seen as a dressed-up Toyota Land Cruiser? Well, if you’re incredibly successful in East Malaysia (we know the harsh road conditions) and you don’t want be seen in a “mere” Land Cruiser, the Lexus LX really fits the bill.
