Style and Power: the 2017 Lexus NX Series Luxury Compact SUV

Published on November 30 2016

Command attention without saying a word, in the 2017 Lexus NX 200t and 2017 Lexus NX 300h. With a choice of gasoline-turbo or hybrid power trains, the NX is a harmonious pairing of style and power.

“The NX is our bold, expertly crafted interpretation of the luxury compact SUV,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “Whether conventional or hybrid, the Lexus NX embodies progressive luxury. It’s big enough to carry five people in comfort and can handle a surprising amount of cargo. It’s small enough to be nimble in urban environments. And it delivers the quality, features, luxury and ownership experience that’s uniquely Lexus.”

 

The Lexus NX is different from the first encounter: One look is all it takes to understand this. From its diamond-shaped exterior form, to the supple layers of NuLuxe or leather that cloak the interior, the NX brings seemingly incompatible concepts and elements into a harmonious whole. The aggressively styled exterior is distinguished by robustly-carved fenders and sculpture-like outer mirrors. The gem-inspired LED headlamps make a dramatic impression, while the seamless LED tail lamps speak to exceptional levels of fit and finish. A roof-mounted rear spoiler adds a sporty flair.

 

Comfort, Convenience and Cargo Space in the 2017 Lexus NX

The product of more than 2000 Lexus engineers and designers, the NX expresses an attention to detail that sets it apart, combined with intuitive technologies and features that make it a pleasure to own and drive. Inside, the body’s peaked roofline offers ample headroom for rear seat passengers, while the cabin expresses luxury and modernity at every turn – from the soft-touch controls to the classic analogue clock. Power folding 60/40 rear seats effortlessly open up a world of versatility.

 

Comfort is assured with many premium features and amenities as standard. These include power adjustable and heated driver and front passenger seats, reclining rear seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more. The driver-focussed cockpit is divided into display and control zones, with premium features including a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio system controls, leather wrapped shift knob, the Smart Key System with Push Button Start, a multi-information display, three-setting (Eco, Normal, Sport) Drive Mode Select system, and more.

 

The five-person cabin is also a safety sanctuary, with several active and passive safety systems working in concert to protect occupants. These include eight airbags, a back-up camera, LED headlamps, tail lamps, stop lamp, daytime running lights, clearance lamps and fog lamps, a direct tire pressure monitoring system, whiplash injury lessening front seats, an onboard first aid kit, and more.

 

The NX series offers two flavours of luxury performance, both built around all-wheel-drive power trains

 

The NX 200t is built around a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine, fitted with a port and direct-injection system (D-4ST). This engine delivers 235 peak horsepower and up to 258 lb-ft of torque. Matted to a six-speed automatic transmission with lock-up torque converter, this powertrain confers unflinching performance on the NX 200t, plus impressive fuel efficiency of 9.9 L per 100 km city/highway combined.
