Lexus NX e-BROCHURE
Bringing together striking design, free-spirited performance and innovative technology, the brand new Lexus NX is the luxury automaker’s first foray into the ultra-competitive compact SUV segment of the market.
Styling was key – the aim was to make a bold first impression and ensure the NX gets noticed. What the NX designers have given us is an intelligent expression of the Lexus L-Finesse design language, retaining the sharp lines, wide, powerful stance and sporting feel of the original show car which gives it phenomenal on-road presence.
But the newcomer is not just about the show – it’s got the go to match. The NX 300 is the first Lexus model to use the company’s new 175 kW, 2.0-litre turbocharged direct injection petrol engine. Nine years in development and debuting with technical innovations such as the Lexus-designed cylinder head with integrated four-into-two exhaust manifold (a world first) and twin-scroll turbocharger, the 1,998cc unit is matched to a newly developed six-speed automatic transmission with a Drive Mode Select system.
