The new NX features a range of cosmetic updates that make it look sleeker and sharper while having the same overall shape. The biggest visual changes include the new lights front and rear. Lexus has made more significant updates to the cabin with a new digital driver’s display and a large touchscreen infotainment system angled towards the driver. The cabin is furnished with premium leather upholstery and garnished with high quality details.

Its full list of features will depend on the trim but it is likely to be offered fairly well equipped in India. It will offer some ADAS features (dynamic cruise control, pre-collision system, etc.), multi-zone climate control, a 10-speaker audio system, a powered tailgate, and a panoramic sunroof as well. Other premium features can include power adjustable and ventilated front seats, larger central display, and a more premium audio system.

Lexus has already confirmed that the new NX will be offered in a single hybrid powertrain variant: the NX350h. It uses a 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine in tandem with an electric propulsion system for a combined output of 239PS. The NX350h is expected to be offered with the choice of front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, but only with an automatic transmission. The carmaker claims it’ll be capable of doing 55km in electric-only mode.

The all-new NX350h is likely to have a starting price of Rs 60 lakh. It will resume its rivalry with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60.
