A NAME CHANGE FOR LEXUS NX

Go! Camp & Drive - - News -

Lexus’s NX range re­cently had a face-lift: There are new head­lights, a new front bumper with chrome in­lays and changed air ducts. At the back, the NX has new LED lights. The rear bumper has been spruced up and the badge and model name has been moved. As part of Lexus’s global strat­egy, the “200t” model name (which in­di­cates a 2,0 ℓ tur­bocharged en­gine) has been re­placed by “300”. The 300 in the model name refers to the en­gine which pro­duces a sim­i­lar amount of power as a 3.0 ℓ en­gine. The model names are now NX 300 E, -EX and -F Sport. The range kicks off with the E. Where all the mod­els pre­vi­ously had all-wheel drive, the E is only front-wheel drive. The EX and F Sport mod­els still have the old all-wheeldrive sys­tem and the six-speed gear­box. The en­gine re­mains un­changed in all mod­els. There are also changes to the in­te­rior. The 10.3” touch screen (pre­vi­ously 7”) has im­proved graph­ics and dis­plays brighter – knobs and but­tons have also changed through­out. The odd ana­logue clock is still there but it is now linked to the satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion so it gets its time from the GPS satel­lites. The cheap­est NX (NX 300 E) costs R599 900 and the most ex­pen­sive one (NX 300 F Sport) is R789 700.
