The all-new Lexus NX was revealed almost simultaneously at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show and the New York International Automobile Show. The new model is the brand’s first entry into the luxury compact crossover segment and is the first turbo in the lineup. 

The Lexus LF-NX concepts, originally introduced at the 2013 Frankfurt and Tokyo Motor Shows, influenced the striking and emotional design of the NX. The NX will be the fourth vehicle in Lexus’ luxury utility vehicle lineup and positioned below the RX.

Lexus_NX_3Powertrains will vary by region. The U.S. market will offer the NX 200t turbo and NX 300h hybrid with the choice of front and all-wheel drive. The NX 200t F SPORT will also be available with unique exterior and interior features.

The NX was developed to have more agility than a SUV plus a bold, eye-catching exterior with its low profile and unique roofline. As with all Lexus vehicles, the aggressive exterior starts with the spindle grille. Innovative LED headlamps and daytime running lamps firmly express Lexus’ bold styling.

The NX’s cabin combines the structural beauty of a high-performance machine with luxury materials that maximizes functionality. The combination of hard metallic surfaces and contrasting soft materials help create a unique interior.

Lexus_NX_6The NX has an array of innovative on-board technology, including an available Lexus-first Wireless Charging Tray to enable a mobile phone to be charged. Other available technology includes the first application of a new Lexus Remote Touch Interface with a touch pad; and a comprehensive Multi-information Display, including a G sensor and boost meter, Heads-Up Display, All-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
