  • Compact luxury SUV blends daring style, intuitive technology, and exquisite craftsmanship
  • Standard comprehensive safety with Lexus Safety System Plus (LSS+)
  • New grade structure with available F SPORT and self-charging hybrid electric NX 300h models

TORONTO, ON – July 5, 2018 – The Lexus NX is the compact luxury SUV that’s like no other – a unique expression of style, performance and luxury that reflects what drives you.

“The NX series blends brave design – inside and out– with nimble handling and outstanding performance in a luxury crossover that stands out from the crowd,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “The NX combines the versatility of an SUV with the driving dynamics of a sedan in a beautiful, luxurious package.”

The NX’s striking style fuses the powerful presence of an SUV with the dynamic agility of a sports car – and seamlessly blends form with function. The boldly-styled Lexus signature spindle grille is flanked by air intakes for enhanced engine and brake cooling, while its gem-inspired headlamps reflect its cutting edge nature. The rear of the vehicle completes the expression of the NX’s low, powerful stance with a roof-mounted spoiler and – on turbo models – a dual exhaust.

Inside the NX, the driver and up to four adult passengers are welcomed to a luxurious yet modern cabin. Lexus guests relax in the rich warmth of interior colour schemes – including Rioja Red, Glazed Caramel, and the F SPORT exclusive Circuit Red. Regardless of hue, Lexus Takumi craftsmanship is evident in every stitch.

Under the hood, Lexus guests will find a choice of two powerful yet efficient powertrains.

  • The NX 300 is built around a 235 peak-horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged Atkinson-cycle engine, paired with a six-speed automatic super electronically controlled transmission with lock-up torque converter.\
  • For the NX 300h, a 2.5L Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine forms the heart of the Lexus Hybrid Drive – a self-charging hybrid-electric powertrain that delivers 194 system horsepower and remarkable fuel efficiency through an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission.

Regardless of powertrain, all 2019 Lexus NX models feature the added all-weather confidence of all-wheel-drive and highly responsive and efficient electric power steering. All models also feature the Lexus Drive Mode Select system, which allows drivers to fine tune the vehicle to multiple performance and efficiency profiles to match their mood and the road conditions.

The NX series also delivers high-performance safety, starting with Lexus Safety System +. This bundle of active safety technologies (pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with lane keep assist, dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beam system) is now standard equipment on 98% of all new models Lexus offers in Canada. Other standard safety features include whiplash injury-lessening headrests on the front seats, LED brake lamps, a backup camera, eight airbags, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

All 2019 Lexus NX models are generously equipped with convenience features and amenities. These include Lexus Enform – a multimedia system combining Enform App Suite 2.0 and Enform Safety Connect – which highlights an audio package that also features Lexus Display Audio with USB audio input and Bluetooth connectivity. Other standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, Smart Key System with Push Button Start, and more.

The NX series is offered in turbo charged and self-charging hybrid-electric models, in a choice of trim levels:
