    2022 Lexus NX 350h: exterior and interior

    Design wise, the new NX carries forward the overall profile of the previous-gen model, though Lexus has given it a sharper look this time around. New design touches include single-piece headlamps (which replace the split units from before), a larger version of the company’s ‘spindle’ grille, new bumpers, a longer hood, and all-new LED tail-lamps that are now connected by a light bar.

    The 2022 Lexus NX also gains an overhauled interior. The 10.3-inch infotainment screen from the previous SUV has made way for a 9.0-inch touchscreen (or a 14-inch unit, depending on the variant). Lexus has also done away with much of the switchgear in the central console, including the touchpad from before. A digital instrument cluster and a new steering wheel are also part of the package.

    In terms of equipment, the top-spec NX F-Sport comes with a 360-degree parking camera, auto headlamps and wipers, a colour HUD, a touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, wireless mobile charging, 64 colour ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, electric front seats and electrically folding rear seats. On the safety front, it gets ABS, EBD, ESC, traction control, front and rear parking sensors and much more.

    2022 Lexus NX 350h: powertrain details

    The new Lexus NX is available with the 350h powertrain. This version packs in a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle engine that puts out 190hp. The petrol mill is mated to a set of e-motors on the front and rear axles, giving the SUV a combined output of 243hp in all-wheel-drive form. The power is transmitted to the wheels via a 6-step e-CVT gearbox. A front-wheel-drive iteration of the 350h is also available abroad. 

    In comparison, the outgoing NX in India was offered in the 300h guise, which consisted of a 155hp, 2.5-litre petrol engine mated to a 143hp electric motor for a combined output of 197hp. The gearbox was a 6-step e-CVT.

    2022 Lexus NX 350h: rivals

    The Lexus NX 350h in India competes with other luxury SUVs like the Audi Q5, the recently facelifted BMW X3, the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Volvo XC60. 

    For reference, the outgoing Lexus NX 300h was priced at Rs 58.20 lakh for the Exquisite, Rs 63.20 lakh for the Luxury, and Rs 63.63 lakh for the F-Sport (all prices, ex-showroom, India).
