Lexus NX price and specification

Fresh for 2015, the Lexus NX mid-sized crossover comes in two distinct flavours. The hybrid NX 300h mixes electric and petrol power, while the NX 200t is the first model to use Lexus’ sporty new 2.0-litre petrol turbo engine.

The Lexus NX 300h comes with five levels of equipment, all of which deliver on Lexus’ promise of luxury, comfort and state-of-the-art user-friendly technology. The NX 200t however, comes exclusively in the dynamic F SPORT specification, reflecting its performance focus.

NX is the first model to have Lexus’ millimetre-wave, radar-controlled Pre-Crash Safety system and Adaptive Cruise Control as standard on all versions. Other features include a wireless charging tray to let driver and passenger recharge their electronic devices, and for the first time, a new Remote Touch Interface with a touchpad control.

Further features include a Panoramic View Monitor, a comprehensive multi-information display (incorporating a G-sensor and boost meter on the NX 200t), head-up display, blind spot monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The NX 300h S, the entry point to the range, is available with front-wheel drive only; all other NX 300h models will have all-wheel drive, equipped with a second electric motor on the rear axle.

In recent Euro NCAP crash testing, the NX scored the maximum five-star rating and proved the best-performing model in its class

  1. I note your info on Caravan Towing limits of 750Kg unbraked and 1500Kg Braked. Can you also advise the maximum download permissable at the towball from the caravan hitch. I need 100 Kg

  2. Sorry I have just noticed you have already answered this question. I am very disappointed to note it is only 60Kg. I have previously had three RXs but really would have gone for the NX. This is a very low figure compared with the rest of the market.

    1. Hello Hugh
      Thanks for your posts and for your reply about the Lexus NX towing weight.
      We have made our product team aware of your concerns but we do accept your comments regarding this. We have rechecked to be on the safe side and 60kg is the maximum weight stated. We are sorry that this does not meet your needs particularly in view of your previous ownership of NX models but if you need any further help or clarification please let us know.

  3. Hi

    I am finding it hard to find any detailed information on the premiere navigation system and exactly what the upgrade does, can you point me to a link or provide further info please, as it is a £1000 more than the standard it would be useful to know exactly what you get for the extra.

    1. Hi Chris
      Thanks for your post. Sorry if you are having difficulty confirming this. Your local Lexus centre will be able to take you through this in more detail but as a guide the Premium navigation has over the Lexus Navigation the following,
      Remote Touch Pad
      2 Extra speakers
      CD AND DVD Player
      Connected services ready (via compatible smartphone)
      Mobile phone contact storage
      Street view
      Send-route-to-car function
      Multi-lingual voice recognition
      Ecological route guidance
      Topographic maps
      Wi-Fi Connectivity ready
      Hope this helps.

  4. I have been looking for a balance between a tow vehicle and efficiency for normal driving. This vehicle seemed to tick all the boxes. It seems to have enough power to tow a reasonably sized caravan, has the electric boost for pulling off / overtaking.
    It is very disapointing that the nose weight is set to 60kg, which pretty much excludes most caravans, which is surprising since caravaners are one of the big markets for SUVs like this.
    like most caravaners, I Guess I’ll be waiting a bit longer for a manufacturer to decide a hybrid that can tow is worth buidling

    1. Hi Bruce.
      Thanks you for post.
      We do appreciate your feedback and we do take on board your comments regarding the nose weight on the Lexus NX. We will pass this back to the product team for you.

  5. There does seem to be a contradiction. My understanding is that from a safety perspective the noseweight of a trailer (caravan) should be 5% of the the trailer (caravan) kerb weight. That would suggest that the nosweight for the rated towing capacity should be 75kg, unless happy to tow in an unsafe fashion.
    If you are saying the maximum noseweight is indeed 60kg, then it appears dishonest to claim a towing capacity of 1500kg, as the noseweight only allows a towing capacity of 1200kg.

    Surely therefore your specification should reflect the towing capacity of 1200kg, otherwise you are encouraging unsafe / dangerous towing.

    1. Hello Bruce
      Thanks for your reply.
      We will be running your query past our product and accessories team but just to let you know it is likely to be early next week before we can confirm this. We will keep you posted though.

  6. Please can you explain the reason for the 60kg tow weight nose weight limitation? I test drove the NX this weekend, and could not fault it. It was simply perfect in every way and I didn’t want to give it back. However, as I need to pull a small caravan, the 60Kg nose weight limit is farcical and prevents the NX from pulling ANY caravan. Utterly absurd, and something that needs to be explained and addressed. Get that limit up to 75kg and you will open up a huge market…..

    1. Hello Martin,
      Thank you for your post. We have spoken with our product team and we have documented your feedback which we will use in future when discussing design changes. Many thanks.

  7. On my current car my nose weight limit is 75kg.
    I have been towing caravans over 45 years. My current van is 1400kg and owned by me for the last 19 years using 3 different tow cars. Volvo 960 I ran at 80 kg for best performance and stability, 4 track 90kg and current Signum 65kg.
    A recommendation is just that caravans weighing 1900kg plus should be aware the Alko running gear when uprated is able to handle a maximum of 1 20kg must not be exceeded.
    Cars suspension can be upgraded to cope with weight but an element of trial and error can provide quite a surprise. Recommendation of 5 % in my experience is just that you must experiment to find your optimal towing experience.
    The Signum at 60 –65 kg offers far better stability than the Volvo and 4 track on long haul high-speed continental trips.
    Caravan trimming if far more important for stability than compensating with nose weight.
