While it's not a complete redesign, Lexus has quite a few tweaks planned for its 2013 RX range. We got an initial glimpse of the crossover's new face via a grouping of leaked brochure scans, and now, it appears that some semi-official stock shots have hit the Interwebs prior to the CUV's debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

2013 Lexus RX F SportWe like the look of the RX's new front fascia, but that's probably because we already like it on the CT, GS and LX, not to mention the forthcoming ES; it's that same pinched spindle grille with LED running lamps flanking either side. What's most interesting about the 2013 RX, however, is that an F Sport model (pictured right) will be produced, offering a sportier appearance that includes things like a new front bumper, honeycomb grille, larger wheels and tinted front and rear lamps, among other things.

The 2013 RX's interior is slated to get a decent overhaul as well, with a new center stack with an infotainment screen that's now recessed into the top tier of the dash. Expect both RX 350 and RX 450h models to be offered with their powertrains likely untouched from the current models, save a slight massaging or two. We'll have the full scoop as part of next week's Geneva madness.

      Looks nice. The New face on the current body actually works. This will continue to be a strong seller for Lexus.

      Most normal cars (i.e. not exotics) are either boring or ugly looking. Boring looking cars probably last longer in terms of aesthetics, but ugly looking cars increase interest levels in the short term, which is probably what car makers want. There are very few exciting but good looking cars for the average person, but they might not be very good mechanically. It would be nice to have Lexus reliability + Aston Martin styling + Ferrari performance + Hyundai prices. One can only dream haha.

      Don't get why this thing sells so well. It looks, rides and drives like crap, but that doesn't bother its buyers. You really have to be brain dead to buy this over the superior SRX and MKX.

        Sorry, you'd have to be brain dead to buy the srx or mkx.

          Yes, because the SRX and MKX is so unique and isn't re-badged itself. You'd be stupid not to build on something you already have. Everyone does it...not just Toyota.

          Also, let's not forget the vehicle that started this segment. Yes, the RX.

          The RX is a more expensive Camry that's been lifted up and rebadged. It doesn't give you much more than that. The SRX and MKX are way more refined and luxurious with much, much more technology for the money.

          I didn't say the SRX and MKX weren't using platforms used by other vehicles! The SRX and MKX are better because they're more than the cars they're based. They feel like a true step up to a luxury vehicle that's worth paying more money for. If you drive the RX, you fee like you're driving your everyday POS that Toyota makes. The RX is joke of a Luxury.

        I was with you until you mentioned the MKX.

      Lexus, I have an ad for you (do you have a position of a creative director available, by any chance?): Narrated in low voice: Do you hate driving, but you must get from Point A to Point B? Are you afraid of speeds above 20 mph and sharp turns? Would you forgo style, as long as you arrive to your destination reliably? Do you need a vehicle whose emotional appeal perfectly matches your favourite sweater vest and admiration for Rick Santorum ? Narrated in cheerful voice: Then we have an answer for you! Our impressive line-up of cars has everything you need: from plain boring to autonomously dull. Choose one of our vehicles, and your friends will never mistake you for that "risky", "he-missed-church-last-year-in-June" type again.

        And the Sienna minivan that you drive is better than this?

        Amusing, but don't quit your day job to do stand-up. The Santorum thing was a low-blow. Plus, I don't think that his hard core supporters would be caught dead in a Japanese-Mercedes,.

          Hey, what can you do? The dude has an impressive sweater vest knitted by his granny and thinks that life begins at erection. It it wasn't for the election campaign, he would make a perfect brand ambassador for Lexus, just like Schumacher was for Ferrari.

      We've got a very offended and determined Lexus fan here. His sworn job is to immediately down-vote every post critical of Lexus.

      That's incredibly ugly. Toyota just can't build cars. They're overpriced, drive like crap, and get recalled too much. If that isn't bad enough, they now look like space monsters! How dumb do you have to be to buy these things!?

        Not sure why you are being down voted. Most retards that buy SUV's and CUV's truly need a minivan or a STATION WAGON.

      Good job, TURDyota! What a great way to make an ugly POS look even uglier. Seriously, the Japanese should go back to ripping of the Germans. I don't think my eyes can take much more of this.

      That grill really is just downright terrible. I'm sorry, but it just is. The rest of it is fine looking, but the whole hourglass grille thing is awful, and Lexus would be well served to stop before they let it get out of hand.
