TORONTO, ONTARIO, November 15, 2017 – Get to know the Lexus NX series and embrace the bold, expertly crafted interpretation of the luxury compact SUV. Significantly updated for 2018, the NX stands out in any crowd.
“The Lexus NX blends progressive style, intuitive technology and exquisite craftsmanship – plus more advanced features than ever as standard,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “Offered in a choice of turbo-charged gasoline and advanced hybrid powertrains, the NX series is the perfect vehicle for Canadians looking for something new and exciting in the luxury compact SUV segment.”
Striking style is front and centre with the NX. This progressive compact SUV features a distinctive diamond-shaped body with bold character lines, combining the powerful presence of an SUV with the dynamic agility of a sports car. For 2018, the boldly-styled signature Lexus spindle grille is now flanked by air intakes for enhanced engine and brake cooling, plus newly designed Bi-Beam LED headlamps. The rear fascia features a revised tail light design, while the spindle motif of the back door helps accentuate the NX’s low, powerful stance. Keyless door handles illuminate to light your entry and exit and the unique outer-sliding design of the power moon roof provides a larger opening and more interior headroom. Other exterior details of note include power adjustable and heated mirrors with integrated signal lamps, LED daytime running lamps, fog lamps, and brake lamps, and dual exhaust.
The NX is as luxurious on the inside as it is bold on the outside. Eight-way power adjustable front seats and power reclining/folding 60/40 split rear seats are cloaked in soft, durable NuLuxe. The steering wheel and shift knob are wrapped in hand-selected leather. Lexus craftsmanship is evident in every stitch. Controls are close at hand – with audio controls and paddle shifters (new for 2018) mounted on the steering wheel, and an enlarged centre console for easy viewing.
New for 2018, all NX models feature Lexus Enform, delivering thoughtful connectivity and peace of mind technology in one simple to use package. Enform App Suite 2.0 puts popular apps at one’s fingertips, and lets drivers bring their music along for the ride. Embedded or Scout GPS-link cell-based navigation helps show the way. And Enform Safety Connect offers emergency assistance at the press of a button.
With NX, inspiring performance comes in two equally-delicious flavours:
Regardless of power train, every NX also features highly responsive and efficient electric power steering, MacPherson strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension, all-wheel-drive, vehicle stability control, traction control, hill start assist control, dynamic torque control, front ventilated disc brakes, electronic parking brake, mud and snow tires, and more.
The NX series also features impressive safety performance. New for 2018, all models feature Enform Safety Connect including automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locator, emergency assistance button and enhanced roadside assistance. Also new for 2018, all models feature Lexus Safety System +, including the pre-collision system, automatic high beam, dynamic radar cruise control, and lane departure alert with lane keep assist. Other safety features include whiplash injury lessening front seat headrests, a back-up camera, eight airbags, a direct tire pressure monitoring system, an onboard first aid kit, and more.
