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.  

The Japanese luxury brand offers a total of 12 exterior finishes and 11 interior trims on the NX300h. The two variants also get a few styling differences to set them apart. Here’s a list of all the equipment that comes with this Mercedes GLC rival:
