2022 Lexus NX 350h's India launch set for March 9
Toyota-owned luxury brand Lexus will introduce the 2022 version of the NX 350h SUV in India on March 9. To recall, the four-wheeler broke cover globally in June last year. It will be available in three variants, namely Exquisite, Luxury, and F-Sport, and will be offered in a single petrol-hybrid powertrain option. Pre-bookings for the NX 350h have been live since January.
- The NX line-up from Lexus has always caught the imagination of buyers with its particular blend of sportiness and luxury. The 2022 NX 350h, which is all set to arrive in India, is no different.
- With a more aggressive design and an overhauled interior, the 2022 version will take on the likes of Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC on our shores.
The 2022 Lexus NX 350h features a long sculpted hood, a spindle grille, sleek single-piece LED headlights with integrated LED DRLs, and C-shaped air vents. On the sides, it has roof rails, ORVMs, blacked-out B-pillars, sharp body lines, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The rear end of the SUV is graced by a shark-fin antenna and wrap-around LED taillamps connected by a horizontal light bar.
The 2022 Lexus NX 350h draws power from a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder petrol engine linked to two electric motors, a 6-speed CVT gearbox, and an all-wheel-drive system. The powertrain generates a maximum power of 244hp.
The 2022 Lexus NX 350h features a dual-tone cabin with electrically adjustable and heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting with 64 color choices, a 10-speaker sound system, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It houses a 9.0- or 14.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system (depending on the variant). For safety, it has eight airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, traction control, and parking sensors.
Lexus will disclose the official pricing and availability details of the 2022 NX 350h at the time of its launch on March 9. For reference, in the UK, it starts at £39,750 (around Rs. 40.4 lakh).
