TORONTO, ONTARIO – NOVEMBER 17th, 2022 – Every moment counts when you drive a crossover that’s confidently imagined, intuitively connected, and meticulously crafted. The Lexus NX series harmonizes design, technology, performance, and safety to set a new standard for luxury.

“The Lexus NX series offers our Canadian guests many class-leading innovations, including a range of electrified powertrains, exhilarating driving dynamics, modern styling, and state-of-the-art connectivity that’s powerful yet easy to use,” said Martin Gilbert, Director of Lexus Canada. “What’s more, the NX is manufactured on our dedicated assembly line at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada in Cambridge, Ontario – one of the top auto assembly plants in the world.”

The NX is immediately recognizable, from its refined signature Lexus “spindle” grille to its full-width blade tail lamps and spelled out LEXUS branding across the rear. The body melds clean lines with dynamic shapes and sharp edges to express the NX’s muscular mindset and nimble, athletic performance.

The cabin invites Lexus guests into an oasis of calm – a warm and welcoming environment that’s also fresh and exciting. Head and legroom is delightfully spacious, while the cargo area is also generous. The cockpit is carefully designed to welcome drivers to the vehicle, with a multi-information that conveys vital vehicle information, alerts, and updates within the driver’s line of sight and most driving-related controls concentrated on the steering wheel to enable intuitive operation. The result is an advanced yet user-friendly experience behind the wheel.

Every NX features the Lexus Interface – a North American designed, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-compatible multimedia and connectivity system incorporating a natural language virtual assistant that enables a voice-first approach to navigation, media, communication, and other vehicle features.

The 2023 NX is available in a choice of four powertrains:

  • The NX 450h+ plug-in hybrid electric features a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that achieves electric vehicle (EV) output equivalent to a 2.0L gas engine and an estimated EV range of 58 km. The plug-in hybrid system’s battery can be fully recharged in as little as 2.5 hours, and because the system is integrated into a newly developed self-charging Lexus Hybrid Drive built around a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine, there are no concerns about range.

  • Guest looking for hybrid power may also choose the Lexus NX 350h, a 239 total system horsepower self-charging hybrid electric that delivers both great performance and impressive fuel efficiency.

  • The NX 350 is a gas-powered model built around a 2.4L turbocharged engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. This model boasts 275 peak horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque to deliver a spirited driving experience.

  • The NX 250 features a 2.5L four-cylinder and eight-speed automatic that delivers a proven combination of power and efficiency.


Lexus offers select 2023 NX 350 and NX 450h+ models with available F SPORT packaging. These models deliver even sportier driving dynamics with active variable suspension systems and front and rear performance dampers. Models equipped with these packages also feature a many F SPORT exclusive details – including the grille and bumpers, colour-keyed fenders, black roof rails, dark graphite aluminum ornamentation, unique meter cluster, sport seats clad in Black and Circuit Red NuLuxe upholstery, an F SPORT steering wheel, and aluminum pedals and scuff plates.

As a Lexus, every NX series model is impressively equipped with state-of-the-art safety features, starting with Lexus Safety System + 3.0. This portfolio of active safety technologies supports the driver’s awareness and decision-making under a range of traffic conditions and contingencies. Other safety systems include a backup camera, active front headrests with whiplash protection, and eight airbags. A digital latch system enables doors to open smoothly at the touch of a button when entering or exiting the vehicle – and by scanning the environment, Safe Exit Assist alerts the driver and passengers to avoid the risk of accidental contact with passing vehicles and cyclists, helping ensure safe openings and closings.
