2016 Lexus RX Could Look Much Different

A quick glance can be quite deceiving. Then again, a fleeting look is all we're going to get before the 2016 Lexus RX debuts next month at the New York Auto Show. This is that first tease of the next iteration of Lexus' best-selling crossover, and one thing is immediately apparent. It looks different.  Though, that's not quite surprising – it's a new car – but it looks 'significantly' unfamiliar, what with the bulging fenders, angular taillights, knife-cut midriff, and a more sweptback roofline. The photo alone would belie something of a Lexus branded BMW X6, however in reality the new RX is likely more familiar and evolutionary than what the photo would suggest.

No technical details were announced following this initial teaser image, however the 'RX 450h' and 'RX 350' nameplates were noted at the tail end of the release, hinting that the brand's 3.5-liter V6 and current hybrid system will port over. Tune in on April 1st to see Lexus pull the veil off the fourth-generation RX, and stick around, because Scion will be debuting the production version of its Scion iM hatchback.
