The Lexus NX combines innovative style with a high performance, fuel-efficient engine, world-class safety technology. Combined with a spacious and comfortable interior, this car is one of the most impressive compact SUVs on the market. Regarded as remarkably reliable, the NX enhances Lexus’ reputation for manufacturing top of the range luxury vehicles.
Traditional Lexus looks with a contemporary twist
Those who have previously owned a Lexus or who enjoy the manufacturer’s unique sense of style will immediately recognise the NX as a Lexus vehicle. The traditional hourglass grill features prominently on the front, as do L-shaped headlights and the strong, angular lines that define its hood, front end and body. Lexus engineers have aimed for a balance between the desire for a sleek and stylish finish with the car’s naturally durable and muscular build. The result is an innovative and distinctive look that’s very much in keeping with Lexus aesthetics.
Efficient, powerful and a real pleasure to drive
The NX’s 2 L, 235-horsepower, four-cylinder, turbocharged engine is just the right amount of engine for a compact SUV. While it won’t win any speed awards, it performs well in almost all situations and delivers ample power when needed. Combine this with the vehicle’s ability to soak up bumps and potholes, and the result is a pleasant and comfortable drive.
However, the Lexus NX excels when it comes to fuel economy. Far superior to most of its immediate rivals, the NX averages around 22 mpg in the urban environment and roughly 28 mpg when it hits the highway. For a vehicle of its size and weight, that’s impressive efficiency and likely to pique the interest of those looking for a cost-effective motor or something a little more environmentally friendly.
Equipped with Lexus’ acclaimed safety suite
When it comes to safety, Lexus has pulled out all the stops, equipping the NX with an array of next-gen driving technologies. Centred around the highly regarded Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 platform, the NX showcases several new technologies that are yet to roll out across other SUVs.
These features include a rearview camera, cyclist detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, and traffic sign recognition technology. Lexus also offers several upgrades, ranging from blind-spot monitoring to automatic emergency braking.
Spacious, luxurious and stylish – the Lexus way
Lexus is often considered synonymous with luxury, and the NX’s spacious interior lives up to this billing. Sophisticated, stylish and designed with an exceptional eye for detail, the vehicle’s high-end upholstery and intelligent dash layout brings absolute comfort and an intuitive driving interface.
