Lexus NX Preview
The Lexus NX is a compact crossover SUV, and the most recent model produced by Lexus. The NX was introduced in late 2014 as an all-new, entry-level crossover and is slotted below the mid-size RX crossover. The name NX stands for Nimble Crossover and the car shares a small portion of parts with the Toyota RAV4, primarily related to the structure and wheelbase.
The Lexus NX comes with various engine options and both front- and all-wheel drive. The RX 200t features the newly developed 2.0 litre turbocharged inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine that is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and produces 235bhp. There is also the Lexus NX 300h hybrid, which is powered by a 2.5 litre 4-cylinnder engine mated to an electric motor and CVT that puts out a combined 194bhp. This is the same drivetrain found in the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
The interiors are also very luxurious and the cabin gets some great features. The cabin gets ambient lighting, an available moonroof with a sleek design, and NuLuxe seating. There is also the Remote Touchpad, which allows you to easily access multimedia, climate controls and available navigation.
Just like the RX, the NX also gets the optional F Sport exterior design package and interior design for a more sporty and aggressive character. There is also wireless charging available for your smartphone and there are additional features such as the available Blind Spot Monitor and Intuitive Parking Assist to help you get around safely.
