The NX 300h Sport comes with a Black Pack that includes lashings of darkness on the exterior, including on the grille and mirror housings. The 18in five-spoke alloy wheels are also black. It also comes with a navigation system and heated seats as standard, the latter of which are clad in black Tahara upholstery with aluminium trim.
Other features of the Sport include adaptive cruise control, an eight-speaker sound system, automatic wipers and headlights and folding door mirrors.
The NX is Lexus’ best-selling model in the UK, and the new Sport model sits above the SE in the NX 300h range. It costs £1000 more than the SE, at £33,995 on the road.
Other tweaks to the Lexus range for 2017 include a new Premier Pack option for the NX F Sport and the RX F Sport. The pack is designed to add some styling and performance enhancements, along with some extra equipment to the NX, including Lexus Premium Navigation, a 14-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system and a head-up display. It also brings in a heated steering wheel for those chilly mornings, a 360deg panoramic camera for better visibility and Adaptive Variable Suspension for improved ride and handling.
