Now in its second generation, the Lexus NX is a compact luxury crossover that truly stands out. For 2022, Lexus has taken that luxury to a whole new level, from exciting powertrain options to a new multimedia system and much more.
Most notably, for the first time ever, Lexus is now offering a Plug-In Hybrid model: the 2022 NX 450h+. Utilizing a hybrid transaxle and a 2.5-litre inline four-cylinder engine, the new NX hybrid is expected to get up to 58 km of range on electric power only, according to Lexus. On the other side of performance, the new Lexus NX also offers a 275-horsepower 2.4-litre turbo engine paired with a new eight-speed transmission.
Another new features on the 2022 Lexus NX is the Lexus Interface multimedia system. The 9.8-inch touch screen uses a Human Machine Interface that adapts and enhances user interaction through sight, touch, and voice. You can also maximize your experience with this new system with the available 14-inch touch screen.
The 2022 NX will also be the first Lexus vehicle to be equipped with the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0, Digital Latch, and Safe Exit Assist. The new safety suite includes helpful features like Risk Avoidance Emergency Steer Assist, Left Turn Oncoming Vehicle Detection/Braking, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Curve Speed Management, and more. The new Digital Latch system opens doors at the touch of a button while Safe Exit Assist alerts passengers when vehicles or cyclists are approaching as they leave the NX.
