As another concept, the RX-VISION has some changes to offer. Based on our renderings, it will get some friendly features as well as slightly toned down design. Besides, a taller roof will be added to the low roofline and aggressive design to give a positive impact to its head and shoulder room.

Door handles and slightly larger grille is added for its front fender. It has more changes for its profile with the new multispoke wheels.
