Luxury Redefined for a New Generation

A new generation of Lexus for a new generation of luxury vehicle owners. This is the new 2022 Lexus NX!

It will set new benchmarks for the SUV segment and our brand. The 2022 NX will offer four new powertrains, including the brand’s first plug-in hybrid. It will also feature the next generation of intuitive technology through the Lexus Interface.

The Lexus-first plug-in hybrid system in the NX 450h+ will combine a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric drive system. This driveline mixes efficiency with lower emissions and overall range. On electric driving alone, the NX 450h+ can drive up to an estimated 36-mile range. The new Predictive Efficient Drive system couples with the navigation system to learn driving habits, predicts the expected roadway ahead, and analyzes real-time traffic reports to optimize the charging and discharging of the hybrid battery.

Also, NX 350 will offer a larger 275-horsepower 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, designed to excite the senses and deliver improved performance from the outgoing model. You also have the choice of the NX 250 with a 203-horsepower naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.  To round out the lineup, the NX 350h is powered by an improved 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an electric drive system. Power has been increased to a combined 239 horsepower while returning an estimated 36 MPG.

All four NX powertrains will benefit from a new architecture that is engineered with a lower center of gravity compared to the outgoing model. A result is an overall improvement in ride and handling towards a driving signature that retains its versatility as an SUV.

The new NX will be the first model to feature the all-new Lexus Interface multimedia system. The touchscreen itself will be right up front over the center stack for better driver interactivity. The standard screen will be 9.8 inches with an available 14-inch version on higher models. To add to the improved engagement by occupants inside the new NX, the Virtual Assistant will be the way for them to interact vocally with specific controls. Wireless smartphone integration and wireless charging will be standard on the new NX.

The driver now has a wider seven-inch multi-information display in the instrument cluster and an available 10-inch head-up display. Both of these features are designed to improve driver engagement on the road.

Taking driver assistance to the next level is the standard Lexus Safety System+ 3.0, plus Blind Spot Monitor. The updated system will include these new features: Risk Avoidance Emergency Steer Assist, Left Turn Oncoming Vehicle Detection/Braking, Right/Left Turn Oncoming Pedestrian Detection/Braking, Oncoming Vehicle Detection added to the Pre-Collision System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Curve Speed Management, Road Sign Assist, an improved Pre-collision System, Lane Assistance, and Intelligent High Beams.

Safe Exit Assist and the innovative Digital Latch system are designed to make exiting the vehicle safely even more effortless in the 2022 NX.
