2018 Lexus NX Changes, Redesign and Release Date
As a new lineup, the 2018 Lexus NX is possible to come out in this year. Its debut started at Toyota North America expo where some other models were displayed. Although they seemed covering some parts to keep its secret, we assume that they were shown the 200t and the 300h as the part of the lineup. This brand will be located under the RX that will be launched next year. The 200t will be a gasoline version with the use of turbocharged engine while the 300h will be the combination by using Atkinson cycle hybrid engine for the hybrid version.
2018 Lexus NX Changes
It will enter the luxury crossover segment and its styling cues are the most important part. It is more than just a good looking car that will attract you once it is ready to be launched. The front end comes with massive spindle grille for its front. The body lines are incredibly well with the air intakes located to the sides of the grille for a sporty touch. 2018 Lexus NX seems will also get redesigned wheels and headlamps with the LED accents. The side profile is quite elegant with a swooping roof line, excellent lower body sculpturing and wide rear arches. New taillights support the great design.
We have to say that it has a gorgeous cabin. It is a perfect combination of soft-touch materials and metal accents to complete perfect seating for driver and passenger. It has dynamic and luxurious design at the same time. The center stack will be the main highlight they could redesign with silver colors. In addition, there are some silver highlights on the dashboard and the door panels for its nice concept. 2018 Lexus NX also has some woodgrain accents with the contrastive stitching as optional. Some upgrades are added such as Human Machine Interface and iPad-like touchscreen for modern technology. It has 73.4 cubic feet of cabin space to support five people. The increased headroom will give you high comfort.
2018 Lexus NX Engine
2018 Lexus NX comes with three different engines. The base will be naturally aspirated 2.0 liter and the second 200t model has all-new turbocharged 2.0 liter to provide 225 hp. The 300h has 2.5-liter hybrid drivetrain for 80 hp. All the engines are mated to CVT and AWD system as the optional offer.
There is a big expectation that the latest 2018 Lexus NX will be available for the upcoming season. It will be published at the beginning of 2018 with the base price about $27,500 and the 200t should be around $30,000 while the hybrid 300h is about $34,000.
