ALL-WHEEL DRIVE

With available all-wheel drive, the NX and NX F SPORT keep the door to opportunity wide open by monitoring vehicle and road conditions to predict your path. If wheelspin is detected, it can deliver up to 50% of available torque to the rear wheels. On the NX Hybrid, the electronic AWD system features an additional electric motor to deliver instantaneous torque to the rear wheels, only when it’s needed.

F SPORT—TUNED SUSPENSION WITH AVS

Engineered with high-rigidity components, MacPherson struts in the front and a uniquely designed double-wishbone type suspension in the rear, the NX boasts the feel of a performance sedan with the capability of a utility vehicle. The NX F SPORT features exclusive front and rear performance dampers and a suspension tuned for optimized performance. For even more dynamic handling, a newly available Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) features 650 levels of damping that can automatically adapt to changing conditions, for enhanced response based on the selected drive mode.

THE POWER OF TURBO

While some automakers outsource their turbochargers, Lexus engineers spent years researching, developing and refining the turbocharger in the NX. It relies on advanced twin-scroll technology and the ability to seamlessly move between conventional and Atkinson cycles, pairing quick acceleration with greater efficiency.

INTELLIGENT AWD

The electric all-wheel drive system on the NX Hybrid features an additional electric motor to deliver instantaneous torque to the rear wheels only when it’s required. With no friction loss or added fuel consumption due to heavy mechanical components, the system can automatically help prevent wheelspin when starting off, and is so innovative it can also adapt to the angle or condition of the road.

ACTIVE DAMPING CONTROL

Lexus NX

ACTIVE DAMPING CONTROL

Surprisingly, one of the most noteworthy handling features on the NX Hybrid is a system designed to be the least obvious. Utilizing wheel-speed and suspension sensors, this innovative system uses the torque of the hybrid motor to automatically counter the pitching force caused by uneven roads. As a result, the NX Hybrid is kept more level, enhancing ride comfort and overall handling response.
