New 2022 Lexus NX 450h+ – Compact Premium SUV | Plug in Hybrid
The all-new Lexus NX is much more than a second generation of Lexus’ mid-size luxury SUV, it opens the next chapter for the Lexus brand. It heralds new directions in design, new powertrains, including Lexus’ first plug-in hybrid electric, and a leap forward in dynamic performance that delivers a greater and more rewarding connection between driver and machine with the Lexus Driving Signature.
The NX also debuts a new multimedia platform that takes connectivity, information and convenience to a higher level, and benefits from expansion of the scope and functionality of the next generation Lexus Safety System + active safety and driver assistance systems to help guard against an even wider range of accident risks and reduce the burden on the driver.
Though the new Lexus NX isn’t a huge visual departure from the old car, it certainly takes on a more aggressive look.
The ‘spindle grille’ (as Lexus likes to call it) dominates the front, with angular LED headlights flanking it with strike-through daytime running lights.
Short overhangs give the NX a boxy stance, and you can have those alloy wheels up to 20 inches in size.
At the back, a new LED light bar stretches the width of the car with separate slatted units pushed out at either side. Gone is the usual Lexus badge too, with spaced lettering taking its place.
One area the Lexus NX has seen a total overhaul is inside. Lexus calls it the ‘Tazuna’ cockpit, which is said to be more oriented towards the driver while giving passengers a better sense of space. This is done with a wrap-around dashboard and centre console, and a central display that’s titled towards the driver’s seat.
There’s a completely new infotainment system as well. Gone are the fiddly trackpads of old Lexus cars, replaced with a huge 14-inch touchscreen.
For better or worse, this now plays host to climate controls as well, plus offers support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. If you’d rather not use your phone, the built-in sat nav uses cloud services to provide live traffic data and keep itself up-to-date without requiring any sort of data plan.
