Lexus wanted something rather better than their previous endeavours in the mid-size SUV’s. With a sleeker and stylist design, not to mention under the hood power, the new NX might just be what Lexus needs to keep its market interested.
Here are some thing you need to know about the NX:
- Lexus says 90 percent of the NX is new or redesigned.
- Those who look deeper will find the usual hybrid offering – which looks set to be the base model locally, priced around $55,000 to $60,000 – and an exciting new 2.0-litre turbo with the latest in cutting-edge engineering to help it haul 1700-1800kg of SUV around (and still be fun).
- The 2.0 litre turbo in the NX 200t is far the better bet. It provides a driving experience that’s almost as sharp as the exterior design.
- The result is impressive for an engine of this size in a car of this heft, and it gets off the line nicely, zipping to 100km/h in 7.3 seconds (7.1 in AWD variants).
