NX SAFETY INNOVATION
Lexus NX honoured for safety innovation.
CLASS-LEADING HYBRID AND PLUG-IN HYBRID POWERTRAINS
Boasting the most advanced Lexus Plug-In Hybrid and Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid powertrains available today, the NX is more economical and more environmentally friendly than petrol- or diesel- powered mid-size SUVs. The product of over 15 years of experience in pioneering electrification, the Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid supplies the NX 350h with more power and acceleration yet best-in-class economy and emissions.
Extending the Lexus Electrified powertrain line-up, the NX 450h+ sets a new standard for plug-in hybrids. It’s not just the 80 km urban range in EV zero emissions mode, the 306 DIN hp of power and rapid acceleration that impress. It’s the class-leading hybrid efficiency when the battery is depleted, with no sacrifice in boot space or fuel tank capacity.
The striking ‘Tazuna’ concept that was first showcased on the LF-30 design study has been introduced on the NX. Created to deliver an exhilarating driving experience by maximizing your contact with the road ahead and steering wheel in your hands, the NX cockpit was inspired by the way riders are connected to their horses through reins (Tazuna).
DRIVE MODE SELECT
Located near the steering wheel, Drive Mode Select allows drivers to choose between Eco, Normal and Sport modes, to maximise the car’s efficiency, dynamism or refinement. As well as Eco and Normal, the NX F SPORT features additional Custom, Sport S and Sport S+ modes.
Built on our much-acclaimed Global Architecture K-platform, the NX delivers many dynamic improvements, including enhanced grip and responsiveness. A wider tread and a lower centre of gravity result in superb handling and stability. In search of refinement and reduced understeer, Lexus engineers specified laser screw welding, adhesive bonding, roof reinforcements, twin bonnet locks and high-tensile steel strengthening. To save weight, aluminium was used for the wings and bonnet.
On All-Wheel Drive models, E-FOUR delivers seamless performance and confident traction over rougher terrain. The innovative E-FOUR drivetrain features the addition of a 54 DIN hp electric motor mounted on the rear axle, which supplies instant torque on demand.
LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM +
The feeling of well-being, which is at the heart of every Lexus, is raised to new levels and is standard on the NX. The latest Lexus Safety System + is like having your own co-pilot, keeping you safe in every driving situation, be it in city traffic or on the motorway, in daytime or at night, at intersections, on bends or during lane changes, with technology that defines a new era in accident prevention. The NX also assists in making driving safer at intersections by detecting approaching vehicles from left or right which might be hidden in blind spots and warns the driver.
PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM / EMERGENCY STEERING ASSIST
As well as detecting cyclists during daytime and pedestrians at night, the Pre-Collision System can now detect cyclists at night and will help prevent collisions at junctions and with oncoming vehicles and pedestrians. If the system judges that the possibility of a collision is high, the brakes are automatically applied to support collision avoidance, or reduce damage in the event of a collision. When a pedestrian is very close to or in your path of travel, Emergency Steering Assist on the NX will support your steering movements to enhance the car’s stability and prevent accidental lane departure.
DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL
The system uses the millimetre-wave radar sensor and a camera to detect the vehicle in front and maintain an appropriate distance. If the vehicle in front comes to a halt, the NX will stop too. When the vehicle moves off again, the NX will start off again. This system now features earlier detection of vehicles cutting in and automatically adjusts speed around bends. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control will also prevent you from driving inside a slower vehicle in the outside lane. And when following a slower vehicle, preliminary acceleration will be applied when you indicate to overtake. When changing into a lane where there is a slow vehicle in front, preliminary deceleration will be applied.
In addition to an immensely strong passenger safety cell, occupant protection is enhanced by eight advanced airbags: Dual-stage airbag and knee airbag for the driver; Single-stage airbag for the front passenger; Centre airbag to reduce contact between the driver and front passenger; Side airbags on the front seats and curtain shield airbags that run the full length of both cabin sides.
For the latest NX, our designers were determined to create a powerful look. A more dynamic grille, with an integrated frame, has been developed. As well as contributing to weight reduction, the design emphasises the car’s dynamic impression. For an intriguing mesh pattern, slender U-shaped components were crafted. Finally, the vertical design of the grille, in combination with triple slits at the bottom, provides enhanced cooling performance.
QUADRUPLE LED BEAMS
These stunning 4-projector LED headlights feature a black surround that conveys a highly distinctive impression. The light is highlighted by the Lexus Signature L-shaped Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
LEXUS BLADE LIGHT
To the rear, a stylish Lexus signature blade light, with a distinctive L-shaped lighting design, spans the entire width of the NX. Creating a modern look, the redesigned LEXUS logo is located at the centre of the vehicle.
As the steering wheel and gearshift can significantly affect the driving experience, designers worked together with a Lexus ‘Takumi’ to thoroughly refine these points of contact. For the steering wheel, special focus was placed on the shape and cross-section to give an excellent feel and enhanced steering stability. The thumb rests and touch-sensitive switches were also redesigned.
Much faster and easier to use, the NX offers improved resolution on both the Lexus Link Connect with cloud navigation and Lexus Link Pro with embedded hybrid navigation (14” touchscreen). Lexus Link Multimedia is the first system of its kind to use cloud navigation to regularly update your maps and traffic data. Perfectly positioned for relaxing interaction while you drive, this 14" HD touchscreen is one of the largest available and allows you to access information like navigation, audio and climate control. Connected services and other software on the NX are regularly updated using “Over The Air” technology, meaning you’ll always have the latest connected experience.
An exceptionally fast and responsive remote-controlled tailgate ensures convenience, especially when your arms are full of shopping. With the key in your pocket or bag, simply place your foot under the rear bumper to open or close the tailgate.
AC CHARGER PORT
The NX 450h+ is equipped with an AC charging inlet on the right rear-quarter, as well as an onboard charger with 6.6 kW maximum output.
Vehicle data is projected in colour directly onto the windscreen. This larger 10-inch Head-Up Display lets you check navigation, safety features, car information and audio settings without taking your eyes off the road ahead. Its operation is seamless, thanks to touch switches on the steering wheel.
S-Flow intelligently controls the interior climate according to ambient conditions, ensuring excellent fuel economy and optimal comfort for each passenger.
LEXUS LINK MULTIMEDIA
Much faster and easier to use, with improved resolution on both the 9.8-inch (Lexus Link Connect with cloud navigation) and large 14-inch touchscreens (Lexus Link Pro with embedded hybrid navigation), Lexus Link Multimedia is the first system of its kind to use cloud navigation to regularly update your maps and traffic data.
17-SPEAKER MARK LEVINSON® SOUND
Available on NX 350h Luxury and F SPORT grades, the new 17-speaker” Mark Levinson® Premium Surround system is tailored to the acoustic properties of the NX. It delivers a peerless 7.1-channel digital home-theatre experience enhanced by Clari-Fi™ that rebuilds sound lost in MP3 digital compression. For improved sound, the large 25 cm rear subwoofer is concealed in a 20-litre compartment below the luggage deck, rather like a speaker of a home hi-fi system, with no compromise to boot space.
A 10-speaker premium audio system is fitted as standard on all grades. This features an FM RDS tuner, Digital Audio Broadcasting and Bluetooth connectivity and offers greater fidelity with large speakers in the front doors.
With Android Auto® or wireless Apple CarPlay®, the new NX allows you to easily display and access some of your smartphone’s apps on the 9.8-inch or 14-inch display.
Artificial Intelligence and the cloud work together in the clever Lexus Voice Assistant, which spares you grappling with buttons while you’re concentrating on the road ahead. This newly developed “Hey Lexus” voice assistant understands natural language and the context of statements such as “I’m hungry” or “I’m cold” and can even recognise which passenger is speaking. You can activate vehicle features like ambient lighting or search the Internet without taking your hands off the wheel.
You can charge compatible smartphones or other electronic devices using the inductive wireless battery charger. 50% faster than before, it is conveniently positioned, with a handy storage compartment underneath. To keep your devices charged and connected, the NX features four USB sockets (Front: 1xA-type + 1xC-type, Rear: 2xC-type).
Our aim is to make your experience of owning a Lexus car truly amazing. As part of this we offer bespoke services that look after your needs and the needs of your car. These benefits include:
