The NX Series is enhanced for 2021 with an F SPORT edition of the self-charging hybrid electric NX 300h.

This special edition joins an NX line up now featuring connected services on all models and a palette of fresh colour combinations, plus the concert hall-quality experience of Mark Levinson audio on top trim levels.

Exterior

The Lexus NX‘s spindle grille is flanked by large air intakes for enhanced engine and brake cooling. Keyless door handles illuminate to light the Lexus’ entry and exit. The body flows back from the hood, over the cabin to a rear hatch designed to accentuate the NX’s low, powerful stance. New available body colors include Caviar and, on select NX hybrid models, Grecian Water.

Interior

The interior can hold up to five adults. Notable features include leather to clad the steering wheel and shift knob, eight-way power adjustable front seats, steering wheels fitted with audio controls and paddle shifters, and available power reclining and folding rear seats. New for 2021, NX 300 F SPORT Series 2 and Series 3 models in Caviar are paired with a white interior.

Lexus adds a 14-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound audio system with 10.3” display. These models also feature Lexus Navigation with Remote, adding embedded navigation and Enform Destination Assist (3-year subscription). Other models feature 10-speaker Lexus Display Audio Systems with an 8” screen as standard. New this year, all models are standard equipped with a range of Lexus connectivity technologies – including Enform Remote (3-year subscription), Enform Service Connect (10-year subscription) and Enform Safety Connect (3-year subscription), plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Engine

Under the hood, NX hybrid models feature a Lexus Hybrid Drive built around a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine, high-torque electric motors, electronically controlled continuously variable transmission, delivering 194 net system horsepower, lower emissions, and a fuel efficiency rating of 7.2L/100km (city) and 7.9L/100km (highway).

The gas-powered NX 300 is built around a 2.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection four-cylinder engine generating up to 235 horsepower. This is coupled to a six-speed super electronically controlled automatic transmission with lockup torque converter for smooth, quick acceleration and a fuel efficiency rating of 10.7L/100km (city) and 8.5L/100km (highway).

All NX models include electric power steering, all-wheel-drive and a long list of performance systems.

As a Lexus, every NX Series model is equipped with safety features, headlined by Lexus Safety System + 2.0. Other safety systems include eight airbags, direct tire pressure monitoring, whiplash-injury-lessening front seats, and a backup camera.
