2021 Lexus NX SUV Revealed
With the redesigned SUV design, more features, and improved engine options the second-generation Lexus NX is introduced.
Lexus has adopted a more evolutionary approach than a revolutionary one with their second-genre NX design. Lexus said that the LF-Z EV concept shown earlier this year was design-inspired.
At first sight, the SUV is still an NX, however, the Japanese auto manufacturer has refurbished it to seem much more smart and contemporary. The new Lexus Spindle grille is still the center of attention on the front, yet it is the new single-piece headlamps that truly help to unravel the SUV’s design (switching splits onto the old model). With the integrated fog lights, the C-shaped air intakes give the foreground a more aggressive look.
From its side, the new NX is distinguished from its predecessor by its larger bonnet, fresh lines, and sharper pinions. The SUV still has a dynamic and well-proportioned design but its general appearance and shape are comparable from the side to its predecessor.
At the back, the NX is dramatically upgraded by the new sculpted LED tail lights which cover the width of the SUV with the light bar connection. The Lexus inscription on the back of the door (just behind the light bar) replaces the carmaker’s former ‘L’ inscription.
The 2021 Lexus NX has also been renovated, much like the outside, with a more driver-oriented new dashboard design, similar to the LF-Z idea. The dash is dominated by a new 9-inch infotainment system with innovative software from Lexus, which can be upgraded to a 14-inch unity. The NX also has a 360-degree camera, auto headlights and wipers, mobile wireless charging, motorized front seats, and a digital instrument cluster.
The 2021 Lexus NX also offers a range of safety characteristics, such as EBD ABS, traction and stability control as well as front and rear parking sensors. It also has a blind sports monitoring system that works with the new Lexus E-Latch to avoid opening the door when cars or cyclists are coming in.
Lexus will offer the new NX with a variety of alternatives for four-cylinder petrol engines including a 2.4-liter, 279hp, and 430Nm turbine-petrol unit, a 2.5-liter, naturally vacuumed 205 hp and 250Nm unit, as well as a 242hp, hybrid plug-in (PHEV) version of the same NX 350h movement. The 2021 Lexus NX 450h+ has a stronger version of the PHEV drive that is 306hp. The assertions of Lexus that PHEVs are just 58 km electrically. A new, electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system will also be available in selected models.
Since 2017, the Japanese luxury automobile manufacturer in India has been offering the starting point of its SUV line – NX. Today’s all-new SUV might reach our shores in the future. No firm timeframe has yet been revealed, though. The price of the SUV may climb marginally in relation to the existing model Rs 54.90-60.60 lakh (ex-showroom) if Lexus launches its new NX in India.
