The exterior design is distinctive, but unmistakably Japanese. Perhaps Lexus has decided that they will stay true to their heritage rather than trying to mimic the European bland, taut and sometimes simplified design. The side profile has an element of IS and LS model, the front adopt the concept pioneered by CT200h while the rear is a clear progression of RX series and CT model, with some Mark X touch to it. 

Interior design and equipment
Interior design takes the simple elegance of RX series a step further, and a step down from CT200h over complex instrumentation. It adopts a clean, quite technical in finishing, with a nice play of wooden trim with metallic accents of solid metal finishing. It is quite awesome actually. Simply the best ever from Lexus.
