Upcoming Lexus Technology

As we’ve read through some of the upcoming generations of vehicles arriving from Lexus, let’s dig into some of the exciting technologies that make these models stand out.

Starting with the Tazuna design concept in the 2025 Lexus NX.

Tazuna Design

The Tazuna design concept, as mentioned above, comes from the Japanese word for ‘reins of a horse’. Our new Tazuna cockpit design style for the interior of the 2025 Lexus NX signifies a growing partnership between beauty and functionality. 

Just like how small and precise hand movements of the reins can control and command a horse, the human-centred design of the Tazuna cockpit is set to make driving as intuitive as possible.
