Sequential indicators


Recommended Posts

Browsing through the UX Takumi spec. for the 99th time, whilst impatiently waiting for mine, I picked up on something I had not noticed before, it said sequential turn indicators, taking this literally I assume they are those cool strip of LED lights that light up... well sequentially, al la Audi.

Never noticed this on a Lexus UX but then I don't see many UX models about, not many Lexus's, Lexi, Lexae??? come to that, this being one of the things I like, Audi, BMW, Mercs, ten a penny.

Any one throw light (excuse pun) on this.

I don't know about UX but my 2018 RX has sequential indicators and I love them. They seem to draw the eye much more than standard ones.

Pretty sure that high grades (Takumi obviously qualifies) on all models of Lexus has had sequential inductors for a while now.  Perhaps all models that have LED lights?  As Herbie says, RX has had it for a while (I think the RX actually got it for the launch of the fourth generation in mid 2015).

The press release spec sheet mentions sequential turn lights across all grades, right back at launch and still today. However I believe it is wrong.

The rear indicators are too small to have any sequential lighting, and whilst the front ones seem capable I've never seen one do it - my wife's car certainly doesn't.

Colin is right when he says

"The rear indicators are too small to have any sequential lighting, and whilst the front ones seem capable I've never seen one do it"

Just looked at my car, delivered last September, and which has "normal"  flashing indicators.

My 2022 Fsport Premium Plus doesn’t even have LED indicators, still fitted with ancient incandescent filament bulbs, even the CHR has LED’s!!

Checked my 2022 Premium Plus Pro and it is fitted with ordinary bulbs.

I did notice that the Lexus NX rear indicators are not much bigger than the UX, even though they have 6 or 7 led’s

I believe it is a mistake. UX does not have sequential turn lights. Leave them to VW-Audi and clones!

All NX after the 2017/2018 facelift have sequential indicators back and front.

Interesting Daniel, so is yours that updated spec?

I must admit I do like sequential indicators, they catch the eye much better which is what an indicator should do surely especially useful with a lot of modern day light clusters which seem to be form over function.

Won't help with all too common habit however of indicating in the same moment you start the turn, what's the point then, it's obvious you are going to turn if you are already turning, i'm sure you would never pass a test doing that.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
