Lexus will launch the second-gen NX on March 9 in India. The luxury compact SUV, whose bookings have been underway, will be available in only the base-spec NX 350h variant.

The second-gen model shares its underpinnings (TNGA-K platform) with the Toyota RAV4. Here’s how it compares to its previous generation in terms of dimensions:

While the carmaker hasn’t tinkered with the overall silhouette of the SUV, it has given the new NX a host of cosmetic upgrades including sharper and sleeker LED headlight and taillight clusters. Inside, it gets a larger 14-inch touchscreen, an optional heads-up display, and leather upholstery.

Lexus will also offer it with a 10-speaker music system, power adjustable and ventilated front seats, and even Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

The new LX will be powered by a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, coupled with an electric motor, cumulatively producing 239PS. Lexus could offer it with both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive options, but only with an automatic transmission. As per the carmaker, it’ll be able to go 55km in electric-only mode.
