New Lexus NX priced from £38,300 (gallery)

8 2022 Lexus NX

Lexus dealers are now accepting orders for the new NX mid-sized SUV, which is priced from £38,300.

The new model is offered with a choice of two powertrains. The NX 350h uses a hybrid engine, while the NX 450h+ is a plug-in hybrid.

It will arrive in UK dealers in early 2022.

Lexus says 95% of the car is all-new. It’s larger than the previous model, with the additional space benefitting rear-seat passengers.

The NX is the first Lexus to feature the brand’s new interior cockpit design, known as ‘Tazuna’. It curves round from the driver’s door to the centre console, with information sources grouped in a unified area so they can be read with minimal eye and head movement.

It is also the first Lexus model to be fitted with the e-latch electronic door release system. This replaces the familiar internal door handle with a push-button switch next to the arm rest in the door panel, operated in a single, smooth movement.

The NX 450h+ features a 2.5-litre petrol engine and a rechargeable 18.1kWh lithium-ion battery – the highest capacity in its class. It produces 302hp and gives 0-62mph acceleration time of 6.3 seconds. An EV range of 40 miles enables all-electric, zero-emission driving at speeds up to 84mph.

The NX 350h has an output of 239hp and a 0-62 acceleration time of 7.7 seconds.

The new NX will be launched in the UK with three equipment grades for the NX 350h – NX, F Sport and Takumi; the NX grade can also be enhanced with Premium Pack and Premium Plus Pack versions. The same grade structure applies to the NX 450h+ plug-in hybrid, excepting the NX entry point version.

Equipment highlights for the NX include 18-inch alloy wheels, Lexus Link Connect with 9.8-inch multimedia and cloud navigation system, Tahara synthetic leather upholstery, bi-LED headlights with Automatic High Beam and the new generation Lexus Safety System+.

The Premium Pack adds rear privacy glass, smart keyless entry, a wireless phone charger, LED cornering and front fog lights, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Premium Plus Pack provides 20-inch alloy wheels, Lexus Link Pro 14-inch multimedia with navigation, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, four-eye LED headlights with Adaptive High-beam System, a Panoramic View Monitor and ambient cabin lighting with 64 selectable colours.

The F Sport model has F Sport 20-inch alloys and dedicated exterior design features including a piano black grille, black roof rails and F Sport badging. The cabin features an F Sport steering wheel, aluminium pedals and sports front seats. The package also equips the car with Adaptive Variable Suspension.

Takumi models have 20-inch alloy wheels with a dedicated design, a Mark Levinson 17-speaker Premium Surround audio system, a digital rear-view mirror, remote and automatic parking functions, panoramic roof and additional Lexus Safety Sense+ features, including Front Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist.
