Lexus is adding greater style appeal to the NX 300h mid-size SUV with the addition of a new Sport grade.
It is the first expansion of the self-charging hybrid NX line-up since the new model was introduced last year, and follows the pattern established by the Sport versions of the RX 450h luxury SUV and IS 300h saloon in offering sportier looks at a competitive price point.
New 18-inch alloy wheels add further impact to the NX’s bold appearance with their dramatic dark and bronze two-tone finish.
The cabin strikes an equally sporting note with the option of a black interior with contrasting white accents on the seats and instrument panel – unique to the Sport – or an all-black interior finish with Tahara leather-like upholstery as featured in the NX SE. Silver trim inlays are featured as standard.
Equipment specifications include Lexus Premium Navigation with 10.3-inch display, Lexus Safety System+, 10-speaker audio system with DAB and single CD player, rain-sensing wipers, eight-way power adjustable heated front seats, reversing camera and dual-zone climate control. A Parking Pack with front and rear parking sensors is available as an accessory option.
The new NX Sport will be on sale from 1 June, priced at £36,500, with customer deliveries starting at the beginning of July.
