Lexus adds cheaper front-wheel-drive NX to hybrid SUV line-up

The Lexus NX hybrid SUV

Lexus has added a new entry-level version of its NX mid-size hybrid SUV into its model line-up - offering a lower price and front-wheel-drive.

The new model offers lower CO2 emissions and better fuel economy, making it better suited to business users.

Available only in the entry-level 'NX' specification, the front-wheel-drive NX costs from £35,860 on-the-road.

The car uses the same 197PS 2.5-litre petrol-hybrid engine as the all-wheel-drive version but CO2 emissions of 161g/km are 10g/km lower, meaning buyers save £330 on their first year VED.

The car sits two BIK bands lower, at 35%. This delivers a saving of £418 in the first year and £832 over three years for a business motorist paying income tax at 40%.

Fuel economy is also improved, with the front-wheel-drive NX 300h achieving 39.4mpg.

The NX features power-adjustable front seats, eight-inch multi-media display, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, LED headlights with Automatic High Beam, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, auto-folding door mirrors, auto-diming rear-view mirror and an eight-speaker audio system.

Lexus Safety Sense is also provided as standard, including Pre-Collision Safety, Adaptive Cruise Control Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High Beam and Traffic Sign Recognition.

Lexus Navigation can be specified as an option.

The front-wheel-drive Lexus NX 300h is available to order now.
