Very interesting concept by Lexus. They are not someone I would have thought would be interested in 4x4. We'll see if they can find a place in the market for it

Not heard of the Lexus LX (or any of the other Lexus 4x4s from through the years)?

Are they saving money for the parent company by taking an old Toyota Landcruiser, re-badging it and giving it a couple of new panels and a paint job? (especially from the rear 3/4 shot)

Exactly (although since 1995 with the LX so almost 30 years ). In terms of Crossovers / SUVs:

LBX = Yaris Cross
NX = Rav4 / Harrier
RX = Highlander
RZ = bZ4X
TX = Grand Highlander
UX = C-HR / Corolla Cross
GX = Land Cruiser Prado
LX = Land Cruiser

The one thing I’d say in favour of the back end, is that it’s a full width hatch.

Admittedly that’s about the only positive I can come up with

I do NOT like the current VAG rear hatch layout. We have an Atlas and it looks to be the same layout. HATE all the crap that falls in the gaps and you can't clean it out well, and we have a crap load of pollen and multiple seasons of it a year

Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute are not sold here, but the Ford Kuga could be more or less the same. Having owned more than one Ford over the years I wonder how they manage to have such a poor and complicated sat-nav system! Really not user firendly, not mentioning the voice command requiring a tough accent. May be the same team works on the ECU's…

Microsoft, and dear ALL car companies, stop running the HVAC through the infotainment system so I'm boiling while it takes it sweet time to boot, check all audio sources, update and then think, hmmmm 97 degrees out there maybe we'll turn on the fans now.

Boiling, puzzling and irritating. Even the last generation of Fords sold here gives you an idea of what human stupidity can be when applied to the sat-nav. It takes ages to load the first page, then other pages and you sometimes have to make a search via the street name first the request from the town name giving no result at all. Great temptation to use the cell phone, which you're not allowed to do when driving. Modern, huh? And the management of what they call "unburned gazes" leads to strange effects like the engine revving up alone. My carburetted '74 Capri deos better!

I don't see it too complicated. Sat Nav tech is still being perfected. At least it works once it gets going. It's safer than using the phone and easier than using a map. Although the glitches can be annoying. Bit different when we had simple tech in cars

The logic of placing so many controls on to the SatNav system just beats me. How is it that it is against the law to touch our mobile whilst driving, yet the law appears to permit the car manufacturers to have the controls for the heating, etc. on a touch screen which must surely require the driver to pay more attention to what his fingers are doing than purely concentrating on driving.

As I say, it defies logic having watched my son doing exactly that whilst driving his fairly new Range Rover.

+1. Now 10" screens are common and carmakers do promote the Apple CarPlay app. From Tesla to a single 208 we are much encouraged to play during driving. And when the voice control is crazy (Pug/Citroën,Ford and many other brands sold on our domestic market) it does not improve safety at all.

Talking about the voice control, I wonder how it's developped. Mazda originally in japanese then translated in english, then in french, then in german? I'll try to use Google translate to talk to my car next time.
