SAFER PARKING AS STANDARD WITH THE UPDATED 2021 LEXUS NX

  • Intelligent Parking Sensors now standard on all NX mid-size SUVs
  • New Terrane Khaki and Celestial Blue metallic paint options
  • NX Premium Sport Edition offered with new Black/Crimson interior
  • 2021 NX range on sale now

A moment’s inattention when manoeuvring in and out of a parking space can lead to costly bumps and scrapes, even when parking sensors are sounding a warning. There is a more effective solution in the intelligent front and rear parking sensors that Lexus is now fitting to all versions of its 2021 NX mid-size SUV.

The system is newly introduced to the specification for the entry-level NX, Premium Sport Edition and F Sport models (also included in versions with the Premium and Premium Plus option packs). It gives the familiar audible alert if an obstacle is detected and also, at speeds below 10mph, applies Drive Force Limiting Control to reduce acceleration and issues a “brake” warning on the driver’s multi-information display.  If the driver fails to respond and a collision is unavoidable, it will automatically engage braking control to bring the car to a stop.

A similar focus on safety is also adding the combination of a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to the standard equipment features for the NX F Sport.

Elsewhere, the focus is on colour with new Terrane Khaki and Celestial Blue metallic paint options added to the range. There is also a new interior finish for the NX Premium Sport Edition, with seats upholstered in black Tahara with crimson accents, combined with silver trim inlays and a matching crimson finish for the instrument panel. Tahara is Lexus’ high-quality, supple, synthetic alternative to leather, which is free from any animal products.

All NX models feature a self-charging hybrid electric powertrain, with the option of E-Four electric all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. As a full hybrid, the NX can be driven in all-electric EV mode in urban traffic (when driving conditions and battery charge permit).

The 2021 NX is available to order now, with customer deliveries from September.
