    2017 Lexus NX300h variants explained

    Lexus has brought its smallest SUV offering to India – the NX300h – although the carmaker has yet to reveal its official prices. Estimated to begin at Rs 60 lakh (ex-showroom), the hybrid SUV is available in two variants – Luxury and F-Sport. The latter differentiates itself with small external changes like a different front bumper and grille.

    The NX300h is powered by a petrol-hybrid combination with a total output of 197hp and 210Nm of torque. The NX300h sports three electric motors – one powering the front wheels, one powering the rear and a third that is employed as an engine starter and battery pack recharger – making it an all-wheel drive SUV. The system is mated to an E-CVT gearbox.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
