NX 200t F SPORT
The NX is Lexus’ first entry into the compact crossover segment. Its edgy and striking design was developed to appeal to new customers seeking urban and active lifestyles.
Developed at all stages from the perspective of young, urban, luxury drivers, the NX sets new standards for future Lexus models.
The NX exterior has been designed to provide a feeling of agility not usually associated with an SUV while also being suitable for urban use. It embodies an aggressive form that makes its functionality and higher performance evident at a glance.
The NX is sculpted to look nimble while hinting at the incredible power concentrated inside. Front and rear flares fuse with the diamond-shaped body at the spindle grille, and innovative LED headlamps and daytime running lamps firmly express Lexus’ bold design language.
A roofline peak towards the back of the vehicle provides ample headroom and accentuates the side profile, creating a tight silhouette. Bold, flared wheel arches house 17- or 18-inch wheels that set the vehicle in a crouching, muscular stance.
The rear is punctuated by Lexus’ signature ‘L’ shape combination lamps, each with seamless LED lighting, while the bodywork echoes the spindle grille design at the front.
An innovative outer mirror and world-first door handle mechanism (with hidden key barrel and integrated lighting) add to the luxury appearance.

The interior of the NX directly evokes the premium, urban feel of the vehicle, combining the structural beauty of a high-performance machine with a material feel that maximizes luxury and functionality.
The center silver frame is strongly embedded into the instrument panel, symbolizing the strength of the vehicle, and knee pads located on both sides of the frame firmly support the driver and passenger.
Advanced HMI (Human Machine Interface) technology offers intuitive interaction and an advanced impression. Separate display and operation zones represent a further evolution of Lexus’ driver-oriented design concept.
Cabin design prioritizes seating and interior space. The NX possesses the lowest hip point in the segment, adding to the connection between the driver and the vehicle and increasing overall head room. The quilted pattern of the seats and varied pad thickness express the crossover intention of the vehicle.
The NX offers best-in-class luggage load length and rear seat leg space.
The NX adopts highly sophisticated hybrid (HV) control especially developed for the NX, with Lexus’ proven 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine, generator, motor and battery. Special features of the hybrid model include sprung-weight damping control to increase ride comfort and handling stability by reducing pitching on uneven road surfaces.

The new Lexus 2.0-liter turbo engine was tested over one million kilometres of various, often harsh road conditions and environments.
The direct-injection turbo engine features the world-first combination of a cylinder head with an integrated water-cooled exhaust manifold and a twin scroll turbo charger.
A new 6-speed automatic transmission has been adopted to match the new turbo engine. It features new torque-demand control logic, which calculates required engine torque to maximize the exhilaration of quick acceleration response and fuel efficiency.
The Lexus Valvematic system provides high torque through an expanded valve opening angle and VVT operation range in a 2.0-liter, naturally aspirated engine.
The power plant has a high compression ratio and diagonal fuel injectors that optimize the fuel mixture to produce strong power throughout the rev-range. The engine is matched to a newly-developed, electronically-controlled S-CVT/Multi-drive sequential-shift transmission.

A newly developed shock absorber, capable of controlling even the smallest micro-level fluctuations, contributes to excellent handling stability and ride comfort. Additionally, the NX features a new Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), capable of variable control in 30 stages.
The NX employs specialized Lexus manufacturing techniques such as body adhesives and laser-screw welding to improve the rigidity of the suspension system as well as the body, enhancing overall driving performance.
An array of innovative on-board technology complements the vehicle. Enhancing the console are a Lexus-first Wireless Charging Tray for portable devices, the first application of a new Lexus Remote Touch Interface with a touch pad, and a Panoramic View Monitor and comprehensive Multi-information Display. Driving technology includes a Lexus-first G sensor and boost meter, Heads-Up Display, All-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The Panoramic View Monitor, introduced into a Lexus vehicle for the first time, helps the driver avoid other vehicles and pedestrians approaching from the sides. This system combines video from four cameras mounted to the front and rear sides of the vehicle, offering a view of everything happening around the car, including in blind spots. The display is automatically adjusted based on gear-stick operation, with the system able to display enlarged views from above the vehicle.
Radar Cruise Control with All-speed Tracking Function maintains inter-vehicle distance within a set speed and supports the driver by detecting the vehicle ahead and ensuring that an appropriate distance is maintained from cruising speeds down to a stop.
The NX F SPORT version provides more aggressive and sportier design. F SPORT exclusive items include a mesh spindle grille, new front lower bumper, aluminium wheels, black outer mirrors, exclusive interior color options, ornament panel and sport seats.
