Ushering in a new era of luxury, Lexus is embracing electrification, intuitive technology, performance, and design with the much-awaited all-new 2022 Lexus NX 350h, which sets the stage for the next chapter of the Lexus brand. Lexus NX350h India model like any other global Lexus, has been designed to meet the diverse lifestyles of guests around the world by rejuvenating the key pillars of the vehicle which are electrification, design, driving signature, and advanced technologies.
With a lower center of gravity and stronger stance, the Lexus NX350h India model embodies stylish design, intuitive innovation, and boundless utility. The most notable update is the introduction of Lexus Interface, the integrated multimedia and digital support on the 14-inch touchscreen display. It offers wireless charging and smartphone connection to the user’s unique profile. This is paired with the introduction of standard Lexus Safety System+ 3.0. The newly developed E-Latch electronic locking system is inspired by the movements of opening and closing Japanese traditional sliding doors. It was designed to allow the driver to open and close the doors naturally & effortlessly.
The Lexus NX was first launched in India in 2018 showcasing a bold design. Since then it has received an overwhelming response. The new NX has a new refined spindle grille, to the new full-width blade taillamps and LEXUS rear badging, the all-new 2022 Lexus NX emits a powerful message to those approaching the luxury crossover. At the front, the updated grille pattern and frame create a more integrated feel to the body of the vehicle. Made up of tall U-shaped blocks, the spindle grille is designed for a three-dimensional effect and creates a sense of depth while expressing a strong progressive impression. Framed on top by the L-shaped daytime running lights (DRL), the three-eye LED projector headlamps to create balance with a more sophisticated impression.
In the rear, the Lexus logo has been redesigned to create an advanced and modern expression. The use of the L emblem has been replaced by a new, unified LEXUS logo located at the center of the vehicle. The rear light bar lamps are constantly illuminated at night to function as a taillight and illuminate the rear brand signature. Guests can select from a variety of fresh NX colors to suit their taste, including Madder Red & Sonic Chrome. For colors exclusive to F SPORT models, the palette includes White Nova & Heat Blue.
The TAZUNA concept is in line with this approach and will be introduced starting with this car. Tazuna in Japanese means reins of a horse; based on the idea “Eyes on the Road, Hands on the Wheel, Intuitive Interface”, it seeks to foster robust communication between the driver and car which has been at the CORE of the brand since its inception. The new NX 350h cockpit is designed to create awareness of what lies in front of the vehicle while facilitating smooth eye movements. The layout of information-related components leads the line-of-sight horizontally from the color heads-up display to the meters, while components have been arranged to lead the eye from the head-up display to the center display. In addition, by consolidating driving-related functions around the touch-sensitive steering wheel, the cockpit aims to provide intuitive, effortless driving control.
The globally renowned Lexus Safety System ( LSS), is finally here in India with the new NX 350h. LSS+ 3.0 has been updated to the third generation to enhance cognitive, judgmental, and operational performance.
