Lexus have revealed that the F-Sport trim-level will feature exclusive exterior and interior bits in addition to enthusiast-oriented features like paddle-shifters. The interior of the car features leather upholstery, a 10.3-inch touch-screen infotainment system with navigation as standard and a head-up display. Sound is taken care of by the Mark Levinson audio system.

Lexus style continues to be carried forward by the NX 300h as well. The front of the car is dominated by the spindle-shaped grille that is flanked by sharp and purposeful headlamps. The Lexus logo features a blue backlight to signify its hybrid nature.

The new Lexus Safety System plus features a pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, adaptive high-beam system, lane-keeping assist with sway warning and road-sign assist, and intelligent parking sensors among others.

Under the bonnet is a 2.5-litre petrol engine, a generator, electric motor and hybrid battery; all of which generate a combined power output of 197 PS. The front wheels are driven by a petrol engine and an electric motor while the rear wheels are driven by a separate rear-mounted electric motor, giving it an electric four-wheel drive.

The NX 300h mid-size luxury crossover will rival the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and the Mercedes GLC-Class. Let’s wait and see how it fares.
