These are the first official photos of a right-hand drive Lexus NX showing its interior.
The images provide a first look at some of the different trim combinations which will be available on the NX – until now, all cabin images have been of the F Sport grade.
Cabin highlights include a thick-rimmed steering wheel, a central silver frame embedded in the instrument panel and robust knee pads for driver and front passenger.
The dash is split into two zones – display and operation – to provide the driver with easy, intuitive command of the advanced technology that the car is equipped with. For instance, the multimedia system is controlled by a remote touch tracer pad, and wireless mobile phone charging makes its debut in the NX.
Chief Engineer, Takeaki Kato, told us his priorities for the interior of NX, saying: “We were obsessive about fine details such as the method of stitching the upholstery and the adoption of LFA cosmetic bolts. The instrument panel is an important item for the driver, so we added a boost meter for the turbo and a G-meter, plus a whole new console area with a newly developed touch pad type Remote Touch Interface.”
He added: “We spared no expense on the leather and stitching, and a lot of thought was put into the design of the seats.”
Prices start at £29,495, and the line-up will be comprised of five grades; S, SE, Luxury, F Sport and Premier. In March 2015, a new 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine will join the range – it will be available in F Sport grade only.
