The company has confirmed the launch of the front-wheel drive Lexus NX in the near future.

The model was discontinued in 2018, but now the company has again introduced the transmission as optional equipment in the hope of attracting more fuel-saving buyers. Prices start at £ 35,860, with the first deliveries to begin shortly after the government-approved coronavirus blockage ends.

It is equipped with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine as the all-wheel drive NX, but is equipped with only one electric motor on the front axle. The power of the combined system is 195 hp. and a torque of 210 Nm, which, as with the all-wheel drive model, is supplied to the front wheels via a CVT gearbox.

Lexus front-wheel drive NX 300h is only available in the company’s entry-level specifications. Thus, standard equipment includes automatic LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and a pair of heated automatically folding door mirrors. Front and rear parking sensors are also included, along with a rear view camera and pre-collision support.

Inside, customers get a pair of heated eight-way power front seats, LED lighting, dual-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a pair of USB connectors, an eight-speaker stereo system and an eight-inch infotainment screen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
