Lexus India launched its entry-level NX300h hybrid SUV at Rs 53.18 lakh for the Luxury variant and Rs 55.58 lakh for the F-Sport variant on Thursday. The luxury brand under the umbrella of Toyota had showcased its fourth model for India on November 17 this year.
The pricing will be standard across India and the vehicle will be sold via Lexus Guest Experience Centres in Mumbai, New Delhi, Gurugram and Bengaluru.
The new SUV comes with the signature spindle grille of the Lexus. It also boasts of a panoramic roof, LED triple-projector-beam headlamps and a uniquely-styled front and rear section to make a statement on the road. Inspired by the facets of a cut gemstone, the new LED taillamps are just one of the many details that set the NX apart.
It flaunts all-wheel drive and a new adaptive suspension. The NX300h is powered by a BS-VI compliant 2.5-litre four-cylinder in-line engine that produces 194hp of max power, delivering an ARAI-certified mileage of 18.32kmpl.
Lexus' first kick-sensor-activated power rear door, first-in-class power-folding and power-reclining rear seats and hi-fi Mark Levinson system with ClariFi technology featuring 14 speakers adds richness to the NX300h.
The new Lexus NX features a 360-degree panoramic surround view monitor, which uses four high-definition cameras to simulate a top-down view of the vehicle.
Safety features include eight airbags, ABS and vehicle stability control along with an anti-theft system, making Lexus NX300h a secure ride.
"Keeping in mind our young guests, we have priced the NX 300h at an attractive price point. The design and engineering of this vehicle absolutely delight and now the pricing will excite a whole new category of guests in India. Our price approach for the NX 300h is in accord with Government's vision and we call it 'one nation, one price' making it advantageous for our guests. Keeping in mind the NX 300h's launch price, this is indeed the most opportune time to acquire a Lexus," said Akitoshi Takemura, President, Lexus India.
