Lexus 2016 NX Crossover SUV: Turbocharged with Style
The Lexus NX premium compact crossover SUV has been turbocharged for 2016! With the NX offering many of the qualities of the popular Lexus RX at a great price point, US News and World Report called the 2016 Lexus NX “Best luxury compact SUV for the money.” On the surface, the RX and NX look a lot alike, but the Lexus NX offers some of its own unique surprises in style and performances.
Capable of a top track speed of 124 mph, reaching 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, the Lexus NX boasts an impressive, 2.0 liter, 235 horsepower engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), providing enhanced fuel economy and better control. The Lexus NX 200t is the first Lexus SUV to sport a turbo engine. Electronic Power Steering (EPS) provides superior maneuverability. Meanwhile, this road warrior gets an impressive 22 mpg on city streets and 28 mpg on the highway.
Lexus NX 200t and Lexus NX 300h Hybrid Deliver Impressive Road Performance
The hybrid version NX 300h features an in-line 4 engine and 194 horsepower. As a Certified Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) it achieves fuel efficiency averages of 35 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
Interior Design and Innovation Enhance Driving Pleasure
The NX interior is sleek and well-appointed, with a technology packed dashboard and enhanced digital controls. Leather stitching adds to the contrast of cool and warm fabrics and paneling. The NX F Sport model features aluminum sport pedals and divider-edging panels. The Lexus NX F Sport also offers an automatically adjusting heated steering wheel, while contrast stitching further enhances the sporty interior styling.
The NX makes interfacing with your dashboard controls simple with its new, intuitive Remote Touchpad which accepts touch, swipe and flick gestures just like your smartphone. The touchpad is included in the optional Lexus Navigation package which also includes features like a voice-activated GPS navigation system, plus Lexus Enform Destinations with 24 hour live navigation assistance, as well as Lexus Apps Suite featuring Pandora and covering everything from sports to stocks.
Lexus NX Experience Stands Out
The NX comes with 17-inch, aluminum alloy wheels in standard models, with available upgrade to 18-inch wheels. The spindle-shaped grille and arrow-liken style of headlights and taillights improve aerodynamics and add to the NX’s distinctive design.
As a Lexus driver, your NX purchase or lease comes with all the Lexus Ownership Experience benefits, including hotel, retail and entertainment discounts to enjoy on your road trips.
