The Power of Design
Bringing together striking design, free-spirited performance and innovative technology, the brand new Lexus NX is the luxury automaker’s first foray into the ultra-competitive compact SUV segment of the market.
Styling was key – the aim was to make a bold first impression and ensure the NX gets noticed. What the NX designers have given us is an intelligent expression of the Lexus L-Finesse design language, retaining the sharp lines, wide, powerful stance and sporting feel of the original show car which gives it phenomenal on-road presence.
The Lexus NX 300h hybrid powertrain was designed to achieve excellent fuel economy coupled with enjoyable acceleration and agile driving. The Lexus hybrid powertrain features a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle engine and a multi-mode six-step electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (E-CVT) with sequential-shiftmatic change and a unique kick-down feature.
Lexus NX 300h has total system output of 145kW, from the combination of the petrol and electric motors. The petrol engine delivers 114kW of power at 5700rpm and 210Nm of torque from 4200-4400rpm. The 0-100km/h dash comes up in 9,2 seconds and top speed is capped at 180 km/h. The 650-volt electric motor has 105kW maximum power and 270Nm maximum torque.
The hybrid powertrain has been specially tuned for NX 300h to provide greater response hill climbing capabilities and fuel economy.
