The extensively facelifted Lexus LX 570 has been spotted without any camouflage by Chinese website auto.ifeng.com, revealing an all-new front and rear along with a heavily reworked interior.

The now-familiar Lexus spindle grille dominates the front end, but with a more aggressive and overblown look than currently adorns the facelifted 2012 model.

This time around, the grille is more prominent, the headlamps are slimmer, bolder and reach further rearward into the quarter panels and the bonnet now sports a semi-clamshell design.

All sheetmetal ahead of the A-pillars is new, and boomerang-shaped LED foglamps take the place of the current model's circular lamps.

Unlike the IS sedan, the RC coupe and the NX midsize SUV, the Lexus signature fish-hook daytime running lamps are integrated into the LX 570's headlamp cluster.

Wheel designs are new and the side-steps are more aerodynamic and more smoothly integrated with the rest of the bodywork. At the back, the bumper, upper tailgate and tail lamps are completely new.

The LX 570's cosmetic refresh isn't limited to the exterior either. Inside there's a new dashboard and centre console, a widescreen LCD infotainment display and steering wheel.

The shifter also gains a leather gaiter, the front cupholders are moved forward to the base of the centre stack and the previous-generation version of Lexus' haptic infotainment interface, which uses a joystick rather than the touchpad system in the RC and NX.

This particular car also shows a pair of factory-fitted rear entertainment screens, which appear to be noticeably larger than those available in the current-generation LX.

No major changes are expected for the LX 570's 270kW/530Nm 5.7-litre petrol V8, which is presently the sole powertrain available for the LX despite its Toyota-badged cousin the 200-Series Landcruiser being available with diesel power.

An official reveal is expected in the coming weeks, though at this stage it's unclear when the new LX 570 will come to Australia. We'll bring you more information as it comes to hand.
