LEXUS EXPANDS APPEAL OF LUXURY NX


Lexus has updated the contemporary design, enjoyable driving dynamics and luxury features of its best-selling model, the luxury NX.

Bold new exterior designs evolve the popular SUV's sporty, dynamic styling while the interior delivers a true driver's environment with added convenience including a 10.3-inch display screen and improved remote touch controller.

Under the skin, extensive suspension improvements result in sharper handling performance and a smoother overall ride while adaptive variable suspension on higher grades delivers enhanced control and stability.

This system is also linked to the introduction of a custom setting for the Drive Mode Select, providing the driver with the ability to set their preferred powertrain, chassis and air-conditioning settings.

The strong appeal of NX has been further enhanced by the expansion across the range of the Lexus Safety System+ (LSS+) - a suite of advanced technologies that can prevent accidents or reduce their impact.

A pre-collision safety system1, now standard on all grades, has been upgraded to detect pedestrians, not just vehicles, on the road ahead.

Other LSS+ technologies - previously on top-of-the-line Sports Luxury and now standard on Luxury and F Sport - are autonomous emergency braking, all-speed active cruise control1 and lane departure warning1 with steering assist.

All models now receive a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, trailer sway control1 and the ability to select a wider field of vision from the reversing camera.

Bi-LED headlamps and automatic high beam1 are new to Luxury grade. F Sport and Sports Luxury gain an adaptive high-beam system that automatically adjusts light distribution from 11 independent LED chips in each headlight.

This allows NX drivers to have maximum, safe use of high beam to improve their field of vision without the risk of dazzling other road users.

Lexus has also added two-wheel-drive variants to the F Sport for consumers who want the aggressive styling and sportier tuning with a more affordable entry point.

Lexus chief executive Peter McGregor said the comprehensive NX updates reflect the focus by Lexus on design, craftsmanship, quality and technology.

"Improvements to the NX styling and dynamics will enhance its appeal by projecting a sportier character from what is already one of the sharpest luxury SUVs on the road," Mr McGregor said.

"New and expanded features will be appreciated by consumers for enhancing ease of use, convenience and comfort while delivering an even more luxurious feel," he said.

All the additional features outweigh prices changes for the new range, which starts at $54,800 for the Luxury NX 300 - the new name for the turbo-powered cars. F Sport NX 300 is from $60,800 and Sports Luxury NX 300 from $73,800. Across the range, the hybrid drivetrain adds $2,500 and all-wheel drive $4,500.

Enhancement packs for the Luxury and F Sport grades add a moonroof for $2,500 or the moonroof plus 14-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, head-up display and smart key card for $6,000. These features are standard on Sports Luxury.

Other standard NX features include satellite navigation, reversing camera, power tailgate, 18-inch alloy wheels, smart entry and start, 10-speaker audio with digital radio4, Enform connected mobility2, tyre pressure warning sensors, 60:40 rear-fold seats and a spare wheel.

F Sport, in addition to Luxury, is equipped with a 360-degree panoramic view monitor that now has a "see through" mode, wireless phone charger, paddle shifters, performance dampers, unique exterior and interior styling and 10-way power seats (cooled and heated) with driver memory function.

Sports Luxury standard features include a leather-accented interior, full-colour head-up display, Mark Levinson 14-speaker premium audio, moonroof and woodgrain-look ornamentation.

Lexus has preserved the strong exterior design essence of NX and focused on details that enhance its visual impact.

For Luxury and Sports Luxury, the signature spindle grille has a powerful new look with horizontal bars, aligning it more closely with the Lexus RX and LX SUVs.

The performance-minded NX F Sport is distinguished by its pronounced mesh grille that features a new vertical interwoven pattern and visual links to the RX F Sport and RC F.

A new 18-inch alloy wheel design for Sports Luxury models stands out with its striking combination of bright machined and dark metallic finishes.

Inside, the climate-control panel - nestled below the new 10.3-inch display screen - is more ergonomically efficient with four easy-to-operate toggle switches featuring the Lexus L motif.

The central analogue clock is larger, with a clearer face and a more pronounced outer ring, making it easier to read. It also has GPS control to adjust for time zones.

The Lexus remote touch interface is the latest generation, easier to operate due being larger and offering better support from the reshaped palm rest. The wireless charging tray is wider and longer to accommodate larger smartphones.

New interior colour options are Dark Rose, Ochre, Rich Cream and Black/Alabaster for Luxury and Sports Luxury grades, together with the established White/White and Black. Luxury customers can now choose from six interior trims - the same number as Sports Luxury. Sports Luxury gains heated rear seats.

For the NX F Sport models, F Sport Flare Red, F Sport Black/Tuscan Sun and F Sport White join the perennial favourite, F Sport Black. Takumi craftsmanship is displayed by the use of Naguri-style ornamentation in place of Wedge Metal.

Two powertrains maximises the potential of the NX Line's stiff platform and all-wheel drive or two-wheel drive driveline. Under the NX 300 bonnet is a powerful and fuel-efficient turbocharged 2.0-litre in-line four-cylinder engine, putting out 175kW and 350Nm. Fuel economy is 7.7 litres/100km with 2WD and 7.9 litres/100km with Dynamic Torque Control AWD5.

The hybrid drivetrain for the NX 300h is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine combined with one (2WD) or two (AWD) electric motors, offering total output of 147kW and using just 5.6-litres of fuel per 100km (2WD) and 5.7 litres/100km (AWD)5.

A sophisticated Dynamic Torque Control AWD further enhances vehicle handling stability and optimises fuel economy. It uses an electronically controlled coupling on the rear differential housing to control front/rear torque split from 100:0 to 50:50.

The system controls the torque split according to driver intention, vehicle condition and available traction, using information on vehicle speed, engine revolutions, throttle opening angle, shift position, steering angle and brake application, and from two G sensors and a yaw-rate sensor.

As befitting a luxury SUV, the NX also features reduced noise, vibration and harshness, thanks to a combination of suspension tuning and the addition of strategically placed sound deadening.

Since its launch three years ago, the NX has broken sales forecasts around the world. It is the top-selling Lexus model in Australia, selling at record pace this year and accounting for more than one-third of local Lexus sales.

NX ADOPTS ADVANCED LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM


All models in the Lexus NX Line now have Lexus Safety System+ as well as Blind Spot Monitor and Rear-Cross Traffic Alert.

The LSS+ in NX combines four driver-assist systems: Lexus Pre-Collision Safety System (PCS) including Autonomous Emergency Braking, All-Speed Active Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning+ with steering assist and a grade-dependent automatic high-beam system.

Luxury variants are now fitted with Bi-LED headlamps that accommodate Automatic High Beam, switching between low and high beams to prevent blinding other road users.

For a more precise level of control, F Sport and Sports Luxury variants gain Adaptive High Beam that automatically adjusts light distribution by enabling or disabling 11 independent LED chips in each headlight. These headlamps, including sequential indicators, echo the lighting design of the new LC luxury coupe.

The PCS in facelifted NX includes pedestrian detection while the Lane Departure Warning is the latest iteration, with steering-wheel vibration as an additional warning method.

Facelifted NX Line also has the additional safety feature of Trailer Sway Control.

The reversing camera has been upgraded thanks to the new 10.3-inch display audio screen and the addition of wide view, giving the driver the choice of normal or wider view.

The parking and clearance sonar, are now controlled via the Multi-Information Display rather than a separate switch.

A temporary mute function is now included in the sonar parking system.

The Panoramic View Monitor on NX 300h and NX 300 F Sport and Sports Luxury has been further refined, with See Through View and Clearance Sonar Linked Display Function (when in motion).

The see-through function displays the image as though looking through a clear vehicle, with the image frozen at the desired location by touching the on-screen switch.

It can also be operated while the vehicle is in Park mode, so the driver can check the surrounds before leaving a parking space.

When the clearance sonar detects an obstacle, the Clearance Sonar Linked Display Function assists the driver by displaying the area of detection on the 10.3-inch screen.

The system is only enabled at slow speed, so it does not interfere with other multi-media functions, such as setting a destination in the satnav.

The new Lexus NX also has the added active safety of a new suspension calibration.

Other comprehensive safety features include eight airbags, vehicle stability control, traction control, electronic brake-force distribution, Brake Assist and ABS.

All models have Hill-start Assist Control and a Tyre-Pressure Warning System.

The AVS on F Sport and Sports Luxury models is designed to cooperate with brake control systems to reduce pitch and hence maximise stopping potential in emergency braking situations.


Lexus PCS:
Lexus PCS* has a multi-stage strategy that includes Brake Assist function and autonomous emergency braking.

It can warn the driver of a potential collision, boost braking force when the driver applies the brakes in an emergency and automatically apply the brakes if the driver takes no action. This system has now been updated to detect pedestrians as well as vehicles.

Pre-Collison Brake Assist will operate if the vehicle speed is between approximately 30 and 180km/h and the vehicle stability control can be activated.

Autonomous emergency braking operates when the vehicle speed is between approximately 10 and 180km/h for vehicles (between 10-80km/h for pedestrians) and the relative speed of the vehicle or pedestrian is more than 10km/h.

On F Sport and Sports Luxury models, the PCS interacts with the Adaptive Variable Suspension to maintain appropriate vehicle posture under heavy braking - provided the vehicle speed is between approximately 30 and 180km/h and the relative speed of the other vehicle is more than 30km/h.

Several Lexus LSS+ and driver-assist systems share sensors.

A camera mounted inside the windscreen has been added to the previous radar-only PCS and ACC systems, for vehicle size and lane-marker recognition.

This further refines ACC performance by providing excellent accuracy of preceding vehicle recognition, path detection and cut-in vehicle detection.

Lane Departure Warning+
The improved Lexus Departure Warning+ also has a progressive strategy. The "plus sign" indicates that it includes steering assistance.

It uses the camera on the windscreen to track the vehicle's course between lane markings on the road surface.

If it judges the NX is about to move out of its lane without the turn indicator being used, it alerts the driver by sounding a buzzer or vibrating the steering wheel and lighting up a warning on the multi-information display.

If the vehicle is still moving outside the lane, it will apply light steering force to assist the driver to bring the vehicle back on course.

Excellent camera sensitivity means the technology can operate during rain and even when only one side of the road has a line marker.

An LDW indicator is shown in the combination meter when it is in operation and its status is shown on the multi-information display. A switch on the steering wheel turns the system on and off.

For the new NX Line, the system has been advanced so that it can warn the driver if it detects signs of driver drowsiness, inattention or distraction.

It does this by combining two pieces of information - data from the camera about the vehicle's position within the lane, and data on the driver's steering operations.

All-speed Active Cruise Control
All-Speed Active Cruise Control uses the same radar unit used by the PCS.

It helps the driver maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front, down to very low speeds and even to a standstill.

Once the way ahead is clear, the NX automatically and smoothly accelerates to its pre-set cruising speed. If the car has been brought to a halt, the driver simply needs to press the accelerator briefly to reactivate the system.

Adaptive High-beam System
The adaptive system can adjust headlamp light distribution so the high beams do not directly illuminate preceding or on-coming vehicles, but illuminate other areas such as the road edges.

The system uses a camera located behind the windscreen glass to detect light from vehicles in front and automatically adjusts the headlamp light distribution from the 11 LED chips to suit.

The system monitors the environment for inputs such as the position of preceding vehicles, surrounding brightness, vehicle speed and yaw-rate sensor information.


*Pre Collision Safety System and Lane Departure Warning+ are driver assist features only and should not be used as a substitute for safe driving practices. Driver remains responsible at all times for safe driving.

IMPROVED SUSPENSION FOR LEXUS NX


Lexus has refined the suspension of its NX SUV Line to further improve stability, body control and ride comfort.

Refinements include a new calibration for the rear stabiliser bar and stabiliser-bar bushing, and new front dampers with reduced friction.

The Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) on F Sport on Sports Luxury models has been upgraded to the latest iteration, as debuted on the LC premium sports coupe.

The new system has linear-solenoid actuators that provide 650 switching levels - for continuously variable damping.

In the past three years, Lexus has advanced its AVS technology from nine to 30 and now 650 switching levels.

Lexus NX 300 and NX 300h have highly rigid MacPherson strut front suspension and trailing-arm double-wishbone suspension at the rear.

Luxury models have a spring and damper suspension control, while F Sport and Sports Luxury grades have AVS.

Both systems are designed and calibrated to maximise dynamic performance and cabin space, including separate spring and damper units at the rear, for a lower centre of gravity and minimal intrusion into the rear cargo area.

F Sport models have a unique suspension calibration and alloy wheel design.
Rear stabiliser-bar stiffness on facelifted NX has been increased by 22 per cent on Hybrid models and 19 per cent on turbo petrol NX 300, to suppress roll angle and hence optimise vehicle turning posture.

Optimising the front and rear roll distribution delivers excellent line traceability, contributing to greater responsiveness and driver enjoyment.

Rear stabiliser-bar bushing hardness has been optimised, to complement the change in stabiliser-bar stiffness and hence increase the effectiveness of the bar during the early stages of roll - thereby enhancing yaw responsiveness.

The NX front dampers have new oil seals and new fluid, for a smoother ride.
Damper friction has been reduced, thereby improving control of fine vibrations coming from the road surface.

REFRESHED NX IS MORE USER FRIENDLY


The facelifted Lexus NX Line has improved safety, user friendliness and comfort, as well as a strong appearance.

A raft of exterior and interior refinements has delivered multiple benefits - from improved headlamps to easier control of in-cabin function to greater rear-seat comfort.

The design aim for the new NX exterior was a refreshed appearance that built on the car's powerful, sharp, bold and agile image.

New styling front and rear has increased overall length by 10mm to 4640mm; with an additional 5mm in overhang, front and back.

A new shark-fin radio antenna has increased overall height increased by 15mm to 1645mm, while width remains 1845mm (without including the mirrors).

All models have front styling refinements, with new headlamps, bold new front grille, chrome grille frame, side grille, bumper and lower bumper.

At the rear, all models have new LED combination lamps.

There is new rear styling for the licence plate garnish and lower bumper on all models, as well as a new rear lower garnish for NX 300h and new baffle-type muffler tips for turbo NX 300. NX 300h has a concealed muffler.

NX Luxury grade has new single-projector Bi-LED headlamps, while the two Sports grades have LC-inspired triangular headlamps with 3 LED low beam and 11 LED chip high beam.

Both headlamp designs have auto high-beam switching systems.

The grille features layer blocks and horizontal slats, for a three-dimensional appearance and a family link to the other Lexus SUV models.

NX F Sport has unique changes to the front grille, chrome grille frame, side grille, lower front bumper and rear lower bumper garnish, with separate garnish designs for hybrid and turbo models.

Dark chrome plating defines the grille frame, as used on RC F, while a new F mesh pattern is interwoven downwards through the grille, for a 3D effect.

Dark chrome plating and the mesh pattern are repeated on the rear bumper of the NX 300h F Sport.

NX F Sport and Sports Luxury models have sequential indicators, with 16 LEDs per side at the front and six per side at the rear.

A new 18-inch alloy wheel design has been created for Sports Luxury, with five sets of contrasting polished and dark-metallic ornamentation spokes.

All NX models are offered in a choice of nine exterior colours, including F Sport exclusive Cobalt Mica and White Nova.

The exterior power mirrors on Luxury variants have been further refined, adding reverse-linked tilt and electrochromatic functions, and Blind Sport Monitor indicator.

Interior:
The Lexus NX Line interior has been refreshed and further refined, increasing comfort, convenience and safety.

A key feature is the new 10.3-inch display audio screen (previous 7-inch), the largest in class.

Three new features in the 10-speaker Pioneer and 14-speaker Mark Levinson audio systems are: video file playback for the two USB ports, Mobile Assistant and Miracast.

The 14-speaker premium Mark Levinson system in Sports Luxury grade and F Sport Enhancement Pack 2 now has Clari-Fi Compression Audio Restoration Technology to recreate sounds lost in compressed MP3 or streaming files, such as the high and low-range sounds and natural voice. This occurs in real time and helps restore music to its original audio quality.

New NX convenience features include a close and lock switch on the bottom end of the rear door. It operates when the smart key is in proximity.

The list of refreshed components in new NX includes the meter display, air-conditioning control panel, clock, palm rest for the Lexus Remote Touch Controller, Drive Mode Select switch and power-window switch.

Top-of-the-range Sports Luxury now has heated left and right rear seats with heater switches on the end panel of the centre console.

With Lexus Safety System+ now fitted to all models, Lexus has standardised the steering-wheel switches, including Lane Departure Warning activation/deactivation and distance adjustment for the All-Speed Active Cruise Control.

There are now six interior colour choices for Luxury grade, the same range offered in Sports Luxury. The new colours are Dark Rose, Ochre, Rich Cream and Black/Alabaster, while Lexus NX F Sport also has new colours - F Sport White, F Sport Flare Red and F Sport Black/Tuscan Sun.

In a corporate styling initiative, all F Sport models have Black rear-seat trim, regardless of the interior trim selected.

Ornamentation has been upgraded throughout the NX interior, including satin plating, metallic paint and chrome plating in key areas, and straight stitching has replaced wavy stitching.

New colour/ornamentation has been applied, including to the inside door handles (new satin metallic finish), shift lever knob and audio knobs while the power-window switch now has a chrome finish.

Naguri-style aluminium ornamentation has replaced Wedge Metal on F Sport models.

The NX interior facelift saw special attention paid to the centre cluster, with the navigation display enlarged to 10.3 inches, HVAC control panel refreshed and the number of switches reduced for ease of operation.

In addition, the button design has been modernised and the analogue clock redesigned with increased contrast between the hands and background for ease of viewing. The clock is now linked to the GPS function, so the time is set automatically.

Air-conditioning switches have been grouped according to operations, while the overall panel layout has been made cleaner, by revising the size of the switches.

Toggle switches have been adopted directly below the LCD temperature/air volume and direction displays for improved operability.

The driver's seat-side module now has the Blind Spot Monitor main switch and a switch for Automatic High Beam/Adaptive High-beam System (depending on grade).

The clearance sonar and Pre-Collision Safety System switches are now accessible within the 4.2-inch TFT full-colour Multi-Information Display (MID). In addition, the MID now has a digital speedometer.

The top section of the NX MID displays environmental information, such as temperature and time, while the lower section displays frequently checked information such as gear-shift position.

The NX console has been improved by increasing the surface area of the Lexus Remote Touch pad, integrating the palm rest into the overall design and making the pad flatter for greater comfort.

The new Lexus Remote Touch function offers improved interface, smoother tracing and more refined visual appeal. A new, smooth touch-pad surface reduces the appearance of finger prints and gives a smoother feel. A new frameless construction for the touch pad has increased the size of the operation detection area, providing greater ease of use for operations such as pinch-in and pinch-out of maps.

A Remote Touch sub switch has been adopted to call up an operation screen with related functions for each screen, such as air conditioning and navigation.
The Drive Mode Select switch has been enhanced by adding an L-shaped serration to the rim.

Lexus has increased the size of the console wireless phone charger so it can hold larger smart phones. It now measures 101.7mm by 160.5mm.

In yet another example of attention to detail, the pedestal angle of the power outlet inside the console box has been revised, for greater visibility and usability.

The Lexus NX Head-Up Display in Sports Luxury and F Sport Enhancement Pack 2 has also been improved.

All NX models now have energy saving LED rear cabin lamps.
