TORONTO, ON –– The Lexus NX is the compact luxury SUV that’s like no other – a unique expression of style, performance and luxury that reflects what drives you. “The NX series blends brave design – inside and out– with nimble handling and outstanding performance in a luxury crossover that stands out from the crowd,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. The NX’s striking style fuses the powerful presence of an SUV with the dynamic agility of a sports car – and seamlessly blends form with function. The boldly-styled Lexus signature spindle grille is flanked by air intakes for enhanced engine and brake cooling, while its gem-inspired headlamps reflect its cutting edge nature. Inside the NX, the driver and up to four adult passengers are welcomed to a luxurious yet modern cabin. Lexus guests relax in the rich warmth of interior colour schemes – including Rioja Red, Glazed Caramel, and the F SPORT exclusive Circuit Red. Regardless of hue, Lexus Takumi craftsmanship is evident in every stitch. Under the hood, Lexus guests will find a choice of two powerful yet efficient powertrains. The NX 300 is built around a 235 peak-horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged Atkinson-cycle engine, paired with a six-speed automatic super electronically controlled transmission with lock-up torque converter. For the NX 300h, a 2.5L Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine forms the heart of the Lexus Hybrid Drive – a self-charging hybrid-electric powertrain that delivers 194 system horsepower and remarkable fuel efficiency through an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. Regardless of powertrain, all 2019 Lexus NX models feature the added all-weather confidence of all-wheel-drive and highly responsive and efficient electric power steering. All models also feature the Lexus Drive Mode Select system, which allows drivers to fine tune the vehicle to multiple performance and efficiency profiles to match their mood and the road conditions.
The NX series is offered in turbo charged and self-charging hybrid-electric models, in a choice of trim levels: The 2019 Lexus NX 300 (starting MSRP: $44,050). The 2019 Lexus NX 300 with Premium Package (starting MSRP: $48,000). The 2019 Lexus NX 300 with Luxury Package (starting MSRP: $53,500).
