The new Lexus RX 450h has been unveiled at the Geneva motor show. The hybrid SUV receives Lexus’s new corporate styling, which includes the pinched, chrome-edged grille first seen in the latest GS saloon.

Other styling tweaks include new headlamps which feature a trio of projector units and a LED daytime running light strip. New alloy wheels will also be offered.

A new variant was also announced in the Lexus RX 450h F Sport, which endows the full hybrid SUV with a new front bumper, grille, rear spoiler and larger wheels. The interior will be given a host of sporty revisions.

The RX 450h appeared alongside the Lexus LF-LC coupe concept, which received its European debut.

I think this looks okay.

Yes, I agree the slightly understated, classier look of the old model has gone but this appears to have a lot more presence, which will matter to their target market.

It's almost as if they've looked at the Audi model for selling premium cars (and why not, it seems to be the bench mark of the moment) and thought, if you can't beat them, joint them!

At first I thought Audi had tied a piece of string to their grill and pulled it tight and all this LED's to copy too. VERY unoriginal

I'm really not a fan of that 'basking shark' grille that Lexus is rolling out across its range. The large grille works on Audis and Rolls-Royces (and Rovers of old!) but this just looks awkward.
