As much modern art as car the striking new Lexus NX crossover offers flexible space and superb comfort for up to five people. Powered by our latest Full Hybrid drivetrain, this breakthrough Lexus delivers smooth and agile handling combined with incredible environmental performance.
The new Lexus NX is a premium SUV which is as unique in it's appearance as it is in it's driving pleasure. All models will come with LED headlights as well as daytime running lights and adaptive cruise control as standard.Flared arches, 17/18in wheels and L-shape combination rear lights showcase the NX's aggressive styling, while it's measurements of 4630mm long, 1845mm wide and 1645 high are enough to rival any of it's competitors for space and functionality.
The NX boasts a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with direct injection and variable valve timing with the ability to run on the efficient Akinson cycle at light load. At full bore, the water cooling of the integrated exhaust manifold also reduces consumption.Power sits at 235bhp between 4,800rpm and 5,600rpm, and the engine is paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox and a mechanical four-wheel-drive system.
Another version is the familiar hybrid one, using Lexus's 2.5-litre lump, a generator, motor and battery. This NX 300h will produce a total of 195bhp, though emissions will slip under 120g/km of CO2, and fuel economy is being targeted at 54.3mpg. This hybrid version will also come with specific chassis settings, including new adaptive sprung-weight dampers for better ride quality.Text here ...
